For as long as I can remember, I dreamed of traveling; there was one problem I didn't enjoy flying or being in closed spaces for a long time. My fears and other excuses in my head got in the way; there was the excuse of money, time, career, people, the list goes on and on. Why did I allow this to get in my way? Why did I allow fear to keep me from enjoying so many things?
Fear can paralyze you in your tracks, creating a narrative that you will allow to become our truth.
We know not everyone can conquer their fears.
Iyanla Vanzant said it best:
"Life is a process of growing, outgrowing, and growing some more.
The only way we can grow into our divine identity is to live through and outgrow the limitations we place on ourselves."
I wish I had learned this earlier in my life when I was free to travel without restriction or limitations.
I can give a long list of reasons but, I would just be beating myself up about something right now.
I can't change the past; it already happened; I can choose to look forward.
Greece, here I come!
So I challenge you to face your fear or eliminate your excuses.
