dear fear

some journaling on this pre-spring morning, before heading out into the world for more yoga teacher training...

dear laura:
who do you think you are? some of the things you're planning to do this year are really big, and you might fail. if you walk through that door, you could even fall flat on your face. everyone might laugh at you. or even worse, they'll keep a straight face but secretly be thinking, "she's crazy."
sincerely,
fear

dear fear:
well, it's true, i am afraid of you sometimes. i'm even more afraid that others will share your thoughts and then everyone will agree...that i'm nuts. but heart keeps telling me i am stronger than you. and heart has never lied to me. so pipe down, please. i am going out.
love,
laura
