I'm sparing you all another Vlog, no need to thank me (ha ha). And so, I'm just going to jump right in - today, the challenge is to do something that SCARES you - just like Eleanor Roosevelt said.
For me, recording and posting the video yesterday scared me. That's probably why I was so "um" happy! And I'm not sure what I was really scared of. I think maybe making a fool of myself or being criticized. But really, none of that matters. If I looked foolish, it's only because I'm new at vlogging and I'll only get better if I practice and become more comfortable. And truthfully, no one has criticized it (yet). So the fear was all in my head.
Someone told me once, "Fear is a thief". (I'm not sure who they were quoting) But it's true. Fear can rob our true potential and paralyze us into a hum-drum life. I've missed many opportunities due to fear. I personally don't want to live like that anymore!
So, try it out today. Do something that makes you cringe. Afraid to sing in public? - try Karaoke; a bit shy? - talk to someone in a grocery store line; whatever it is:
GO FOR IT!
I guarantee the reality won't be as bad as what you've imagined in your head. *smile*
Peace, Love, and Chocolate
