First – yay I’m back!!!

Sorry for the little break and I haven’t disappeared or stopped blogging.  With the kids school ending, camp starting, my own school work….my brain has been a little fried to sit down and put some words together that somewhat make sense.

So here I go….

My “Better Person Challenge” of the week is to not let fear get in my way.

I have to say I have grown the past few years and punched fear in the face a few times since my husband passed away, but it is always something I am working at.

I started a new class in school yesterday and just by reading the syllabus, my brain started smoking and my initial reaction was to run.  “I cannot get through this class, it looks way too hard!”  I literally had to talk to talk myself down and say “Listen, it’s going to be hard, but you have to finish school!  You have dealt with harder things in life….stop whining and get through these five f*ing weeks!”

I am also working on a project that could potentially be a little side hustle and first thought “Can I actually do this?  Do I have the personality?  The motivation?  The skills?”  I have had some pushback from people saying “How can you possibly add more things to your plate?”  I have a picture hanging above my desk with the saying, “She’s a dreamer, A doer, A thinker.  She sees possibility everywhere”.  Enough said!

And these two examples are just this past week and month…fear can be everywhere…it’s how you face it that makes a difference.

So don’t back down, try something different and face an issue head on that you would normally back down from because you were scared you would fail!  You got this!
