Fear Erased

It's natural that each of us have things we fear. It's simply part of our nature. We're all different so things I'm afraid of may not be a problem for you at all and visa versa. We have small fears and we have big fears, but no matter the size they hold us back. The person whose always afraid of making a mistake may never find success. The one whose afraid of being ugly may never realize how beautiful they are.

I instantly fell in love with this picture the moment I saw it. How wonderful would it be if you could write down all of your fears and then just erase them never having to worry about them again? Which fears would you put on the wall? What would you do with your life if you weren't afraid any more?

One thing I know about fear is that it can be overcome. Fears are nasty little tricks our minds play on us but the courage in our hearts can be stronger. It requires taking a step into the darkness and taking a chance that your fears will come true, but if you don't take the chance you can never prove them wrong. In my experience once I've looked fear in the face and taken that first step my heart does a little victory dance because I discovered things aren't as bad as I thought they would be.
