"Do one thing every day that scares you" - Eleanor Roosevelt
My personal journey of 365 acts of courage
Who am I
Like you, I'm just an every day kinda gal. I grew up on a farm in the middle of the outback in Australia. I'm no one famous, I have a below-average education (yep), I've more bad hair days than good ones, and there really isn't anything special about me.
Sure, I had a rough start to life, but then so do too many others (#metoo) and I've had my fair share of challenges that living a full life encompasses.
And that's my point...you don't have to be famous, super smart, or even anything exceptional (although I believe we all are) to be able to face your fears (or facing 365 fears in my case). You just have to be willing to give it a go. And, if I can do it, then I know you can too!
Walking My Talk
As I dived into this challenge I OFTEN asked myself why did I choose 365 acts of courage and not just ten? But I believe that living each day fully requires an act of courage and so it had to be 365.
And why share it? Especially the times when fear had me in its grips and I was looking for any excuse to get out of it.
I just couldn't deny the innermost feeling I had that kept telling me I had to. That voice that kept whispering in my ear and the energy that kept pulling me forward from my gut. You know that feeling!
So here I am, raw, real, and vulnerable. Sharing my fears, tears, failures, moments of elation, successes, and disappointments.
I'm sharing my whole journey (the blood, sweat, tears, and snot, the whole lot!) in the hope that you can take from it what you need to discover your own courage.
Face your fears, grow your confidence, and go live a truly magnificent life. I've got your back xo
