Encouraging thought of the day

Pessimistic voice in the back of my head: "You wouldn't be able to do that. You're afraid of it."

Me: "So? I'm afraid of everything."

I'm starting to realize that I can be as uncontrolled by fear as someone who is completely fearless--if I'm afraid of talking to anyone I don't know, I might as well make a speech to a roomful of strangers; if I'm afraid of leaving my room, I might as well leave the country, etc.

Boy, that little thought I had this morning could be the start of something pretty cool.

You know, this take of yours has completely reinvented my interpretation of the saying "there is nothing to fear but fear itself." Good reflection!
