Fear pisses me off. How dare anything be stronger than me! I used to think my biggest fear was speaking in public. Last month my dear friends made me face that one head on. We were volunteering at a week-long event when the leader of our group decided it would be best if I represented our group at the end of the week service. When she first told me I laughed at her. She had to be kidding. Me? Stand at a podium and deliver a short speech. Me?
Well, I did it anyway. I have found that the only way I can overcome a fear is just to do the damn thing until it’s not scary anymore. I will not tuck tail and run. No more. Am I not made of flesh and blood as all others who walk this earth? Why should I believe that they can do a thing but I cannot?
I can do anything I set my mind to.
