Over the last few days I've been thinking about my fears and I have decided that it's probably not the fear as such, it is actually the power that I am giving these fears that is the scary part... After writing them out they don't look so bad on paper, but in my head a few of them were huge, so here they are...
- I am scared of losing my job and what that means for me and my family financially, although one of my dreams is to be a full time artist, I think the leap to do this is super scary and the self doubt starts to creep in... "you could never do this, you are not good enough"!!!
- I fear waking up and the creativeness that has flowed through me my whole life has gone, gone for good.
- people are disappointed in me...
- I will never have a good idea for a children's book, I have a lot of bits and pieces of ideas but nothing substantial yet.
- failure scares me.
We were also asked the question "what would you do if you knew you would not fail" After listing the last fear above this really made me smile... I would do everything, I would do it all.
