Put The Fear Aside

thedock-1200x700This quote helped me get through something I was fearing for a year!

“Fear never needs to control my choices. Something powerful rises up in me whenever I put the fear aside and move ahead in spite of it.”

—Judith Light

So, that’s what I did.

Do Your Life


“Nobody’s going to do your life for you. You have to do it yourself, whether you’re rich or poor, out of money or raking it in, the beneficiary of ridiculous fortune or terrible injustice. And you have to do it no matter what is true. No matter what is hard. No matter what unjust, sad, sucky things befall you. Self-pity is a dead-end road. You make the choice to drive down it. It’s up to you to decide to stay parked there or to turn around and drive out.”  

― Cheryl Strayed
