From Fear to Courage
- Come as you are and bring along an open, curious mind and open, compassionate heart!
What would you be doing right now if you weren't afraid? What if judgement didn't scare you?
Fear wants us to stay where we are. It's all about avoiding perceived risks. Fear makes your world smaller and smaller by keeping you from the decisions, choices, and changes that bring you what you've been seeking: peace, joy, meaning, purpose, freedom, and connection.
You're saying, "I'm ready to go out and get it," but fear has a different idea.
Disturbing the peace comes with the territory of change, but this isn't something to fear. You CAN move forward into a more authentic life with clarity and courage.
