I was watching a movie the other day — well, really it was background noise as I did other things — and a part caught my attention.
The character was teaching someone how to look at their situation. She says:
Fear is cold – it freezes us up
Fear of performance
Fear of what people will think
Fear of doing something wrong
Fear of anything
When we let go of your fears we touch our souls.
I thought that this was put in a really interesting way. We get paralyzed by so many things. Often we don't even understand that we are frozen.
The amazing thing is that once you understand your fear is there, you can start to thaw out. You can find solutions to those fears and people that can help you. Once the freeze is over, just like in the spring, you can blossom and grow into something fabulous.
What have you experienced that froze you? How did you thaw out?
Here is to you thawing out!
