"Fearless: to be without fear; bold and brave!"

Whenever I hear the word fearless I immediately think of the main word, fear. I think of all the things I’ve stopped myself from doing because of fear. Fear of failure, self doubt, fear of what others might think; I get so wrapped up in those things that I let it hold me back from things I want to accomplish. Life is so short and we only have one life to live. Don’t let your fears hinder your future. It’s so easy to get caught up in worrying what others might think or letting society dictate what it says you should be doing with YOUR life. Push all the negative thoughts aside and let yourself apply for that new job, start that new project you’ve always wanted to do, weed out people from your life who aren’t bringing you positivity and support. Don’t be afraid to say no! I started thinking about the things I would do if I wear completely fearless. I’m not one for sharing my biggest fears but here we go:

Never being successful!

This is probably my biggest fear. At the tender age of 25 I feel like I’m way behind on this timeline that society has come up with on where I should be at in life. I should probably be married, working in an office somewhere and owning a home. Everyone’s life is different and God has different paths for everyones life. I’m on my own journey and I know that God has my back. He is taking me on this walk, guiding me thru every step. I know that successful doesn’t mean just career wise or money wise. Successful means having a relationship with God, fulfilling the things he has set for my life and helping others along the way.

Feeling good enough!

I’ve struggled with this my entire life. I use to be a people pleaser, to the point where I started changing who I was as a person just to fit what I thought people wanted me to be. Changing myself to have friends when in reality I was just pushing aside who I was as a person. Changing myself to do everything I could in the workplace so that it showed I was dedicated and a hard worker when my work showed for itself. This is something that might always continue but knowing that regardless of what anyone says or thinks, I AM good enough.

Fear of the unknown!
This is something I think about a lot. Where is my future going? Will I get married one day? What will my life be like in the next 20 to 30 years?...all things I don't have answers to but knowing my actions right now will affect those things. I have to allow myself to live life in the moment instead of worrying about things I can't fix in the future. It would be great if I could time travel, but I can't so until I'm doing my best to just let things happen.

Those are just a few of my fears that I'm working on. I would love to know what's one of your biggest fears and why?
