Fear is a fantastic deep freeze. “What if I fail” stops me dead in my tracks too often. Damn it.
I’m struggling with something scary today. No big thing, just some thing. Something that makes my stomach hurt, my neck tense up and requires more than occasional trips to the bathroom. And something that really doesn’t matter. Yet, here it is.
There are some things that scare me that I’m able to just tackle head on and get over them. Other things freeze me. Usually the things that are deep freezes are the silliest, once I stop thinking and worrying and just be with it–whatever it happens to be. Fear is, without a doubt, only in our heads. I’m trying to open the door and let it out of mine.
