This is one of my BIGGEST fears!

Let’s jump right in, shall we?
You wanna know what ONE of my biggest fears is?
Settling.

Settling for a life that’s easy. Settling for one that makes sense and fits into normalcy. One that’s traditionally correct and appeasing to the religious standard. One that ultimately looks great immediately at face value and on paper, therefore gaining acceptance from others without question.
That burns in my belly day in and day out. Especially as I get older and there are “expectations” of being and doing specific things. #notinarush
However, that fear keeps me from getting into situations that lock me down, forcing me to take a basic and normal route for comfort, stability, and certainty.
Once upon a time I wanted normal. But I learned QUICKLY that “normal” was NOT made for a gal like me.
In some way that fear is definitely linked to being so much of a black sheep that you can almost never hide without drawing attention. However, again, that fear can and will never override the light that shines within me.
This little L I G H T of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.. πŸ™‚
Let your light shine!
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
