Converting Scaredy Cat Into a Champion


"Don’t manage your fear. Lead your fear. Take charge. When fear climbs on your shoulder and starts nattering in your ear, here’s what you do: You stand as a master. You tell Scaredy Cat where you’re going, risks and all, and you convert Scaredy into a champion to help you get there."  Danielle LaPorte

The gorgeous flowering tree across the street from me

This week I am managing my fear.  I'm calling it on its shit.  Instead of allowing it to toss me all over the place, I'm standing taller and moving anyway.  I'm taking deeper breaths.  I'm listening closer to "wise Julia"  (rather than "scaredy cat Julia").  

I'm remembering to say thank you.  I'm daydreaming, taking walks, lifting my head to the sun, listening to the birds.  Watching flowers bloom.   Getting closer and closer to making this book dream a reality.  

Hello courage, wanna dance?
