This post is a little bit late. And you guessed it right, fear gets in the way.
I noticed that when a dream appeared in my head, a beautiful dream that I want to give life to, fear wakes up suddenly. It whispers to me. It makes the cotton candy colored dream gray. It brings me down. Saying, “that dream is so big. You think you can make it real?!Noooo. You’re too frail. Too sensitive.” It gets even louder and louder as soon as brick by brick the plan to do the work is executed.
That is how fear works. With me.
But by recognizing and acknowledging fear, and doing the work in spite of its presence, I believe its noise can be lowered. Just do the work. Show up and paint. Show up and write. Show up and dance.
and so i gather strength
from deep within me
from the Great Spirit
i seek assistance to
those who came before me
for the battle
the battle of becoming myself
“The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.” —Anna Quindlen
