...you auditioned for that play?
...you made the first move in pursuing friendship?
...you took a pottery class?
...you sang out loud the song that's in your heart?
...you let the words in your head bleed all over the page?
...you danced with your whole body?
...you spoke up when you saw injustice?
...you celebrated small victories?
...you questioned the status quo?
...you forgave more?
...you laughed more?
...you believed more?
What would you learn about yourself? How would your life change?
If you've overcome the objections, the worries, the fears about a "what if..." moment, I invite you to share your story in the upcoming Not Afraid: Finding Stories of Significance book that I'm compiling with Civitas Press. I am accepting submissions through January 31, and I would love to read how you overcame fear and what it taught you about yourself.
