If you didn't have FEAR what would you have done with your life?

All those missed opportunities cause you thought: "No, I couldn't do that". What did you want to do but said no because of fear? Did you take the easy road, the one everyone travels on?

"The road not taken might have brought me fame, but I missed it along the way..." I wanted to be a rock star when I was young so badly I could taste it. I used to stare at pictures of KISS and the Beatles and Iron Maiden, and watch their videos and what not and study everything they did, because it's what I wanted to do--stand high above a crowd, holding them captive in the palm of my hand. Alas...

If I could be a little visionful here, cause you know I know!!! You already stand out in a crowd and you do hold people captive. Your guitar is one way and not the only way as you innately know. Much is at your feet, and what you cannot see will be seen.

I think my FEAR of being unable to provide for my children has kept me in a not so great marriage. Living with my husband hasn't always been so easy. I can't help but to wonder now if maybe I didn't take the EASYROAD. Maybe I should have kicked him to the curb and traveled the road ahead.

I think that's a common one. I know my own mother endured all for exactly the same reason. Yet she is a very capable woman. So strong is this sense of fear, and reinforced 100 fold by the mind. But it's often nonsensical. The energy it takes to endure what is feared - imagine if that was channeled into a different future. Sometimes I wonder if what we see as the easy road - comfort etc, is in fact the hard road. What did Nelson Mandala say - something about our own power being our biggest fear. I have this big procrastination trait, I read somewhere recently (must write these pearls down) that procrastination is putting of what we innately know needs to be done. Scared me I have to say! Hang in there.

I'm hanging. All I can do is focus on what I hope to achieve now and not be discouraged by others people's negatively. Hopefully, one day I will wake up and FACE my fear. Thanks for being a friend!
