What would you do if you weren't afraid?

That's been my mantra for years. It's how I've learned to take steps towards my own happiness and how I've made some pretty big decisions in my life. I still ask myself that question when I'm struggling with decisions. I will always ask myself that question when thoughts start swirling around my head and I start wringing my hands in angst. By asking the question, I come up with answers, which leads to options, which then allows me to come up with a plan for attaining the option I choose. It's always good to have options, to have choices. So I ask you, friends and family, what would you do if you weren't afraid?


  1. Oh, this is perfect for me right now. Thank you for posting this question. I won't answer it here, but I have the answer in my head. :-)

  2. Sometimes all that's required is the asking. I amazed at how often I find the exact words I need to hear on someone else's blog. Glad I could help this time.

  3. i love quotes and this is a great one. fear often holds me back - esp fear of not being able to do everything for my children because i am working on something for myself. i need to think about this some more - and be totally honest with myself. thanks for asking.
