Fear



How can we grow if we are afraid to change?
How can we change if we are afraid to grow?

Change your world, starting with the small stuff. Sleep more. Paint your nails. Ride a bike, or take a bus to somewhere you've never been. Go to a farmer's market. Cook muffins and bring them to your neighbors. Petition for a cause you care about. Call the president. Design a t-shirt. Try foreign food. Go on a road trip, even if only for a day. Play. Go to a party. Put on a party. Sing loudly in the shower. Sing loudly in public. Cry when you're sad. Trust people. Give people a second chance. Learn to swim. Run a marathon. Make that phone call to the person you miss. Tell the person you love how you feel.

i remember an advert on TV a while ago that had the quote "do one thing a day that scares you".

I've tried to do that, and when you do, it feels so good, so liberating, staring at fear and realising you won.

great for the heart and great for the soul
