Over the past week or so I have been witnessing a brilliant conversation about fearlessness. People came together and shared their truth and it was beautiful to read and take in.
I am so grateful to be a part of communities where people can have these discussions and not make anyone wrong for their beliefs.
I learned a few things about myself and my particular beliefs around fearlessness and yesterday I finally articulated my thoughts.
I don’t aspire to fearlessness. I aspire to discernment. Fearlessness gets you dead – fear keeps us safe or keeps us small – discernment tells us which. Most of my childhood fear kept me safe, most of my adulthood my fear has had me playing small – and I am no longer available for that for myself and I am not available for that for you.
I am grateful for the containers where I am allowed, encouraged, and expected to be fully me without reservation or apology. Please know you have that same safe place with me.
