I’ve rewritten this blog post several times, too many to count actually. I kept struggling to find the right words.
And so as I return to the file to work on it, I thought about why this was a difficult post to write.
I realize that I need to let go of the fear that’s been holding me back from getting to know my future self. That fear is strong. It’s kept me from sharing more in our Harmony tribe on Marco Polo, in the MKE Members Area, just in general.
I haven’t truly let go of the fear yet.
Although I’ve made the decision to meet and love my future self, I have more work ahead of me to get there.
Fear has me believing in the illusion of security and I am nervous to step outside my comfort zone for too long, which is crazy because through the exercises I’ve glimpsed the future me and she is amazing.
I enjoy her thoughts when they’ve merged with the old me too and as I’ve focused on the first of 13 virtues in the Franklin Makeover, I am proud of how she looks at things and responds.
I know I just have to keep at the daily practice of meeting her and trust that she will eventually be in the driver’s seat. She is strong. And brave. And amazing.
Thank you Sara, for sharing such honest and vulnerable blog post. And congrats for making such a brave and honest self discovery! It’s when we can acknowledge what is holding us back that we can do what’s necessary to change it.
She is there within you. Trust what you know as the cement chips away and the light shines.
