Monday Motivation - Courage.

Monday, August 31, 2015

Courage (noun)
- the ability to do something that frightens one; bravery.
- strength in the face of pain or grief.

As an anxiety sufferer one thing I really struggle with is courage. Being brave enough to do the things I really want to do. Now this can include things like trying new foods, going new places and meeting new people but isn't just limited to new experiences. Plenty of people for example, may have had to do things like some public speaking but still get fearful when they need to do it again. They can feel like they don't have the courage to go through with it.

Now there's a quote that I really love that says 'Everything you want is on the other side of fear'. I really like it because it reminds me to be courageous and do things I want to do even if it frightens me.

Life would be terribly sheltered and miserable if we let our fears take over and didn't be courageous. Yes it's scary but you always have to think - what the worst that could happen? There are great opportunities out there waiting for you if you have the courage! Now I'm not saying go out and do 10 scary things all at once (unless you really want to) because that could get overwhelming and put you off altogether. What I am saying is take baby steps. Do one thing that scares you every day. Eventually the fear will fade away and the courage will win. I can guarantee you will feel much  happier and so proud of yourself.

I'm writing this Saturday but tomorrow (yesterday for you) I will be attending a blogger meet at Al Porto, Hull. There are 30 of us altogether and I've not met a single person going! The day is packed full of fun stuff from meeting new people, experiencing different brands and other fun things like raffles! I am going to muster up all my courage and go meet all these wonderful fellow bloggers because I want to and because I'm not going to let fear win! After all - life begins at the end of your comfort zone!

What's one courageous thing you have done recently or are doing soon?
