What are you scared of??

A few weeks ago, I went to see Cat Power at Town Hall....Chan was beautiful and put on nearly a two hour show. The amazing thing is, the girl has terrible stage fright. She is notorious for leaving stage in the middle of a concert. She kinda freaks out and then just up and leaves... After leaving the show, I was thinking how amazing it was that she faced her biggest fear and obviously overcame it.

I started to think that it truly was quite special because, quite frankly, how many people face their fears every day? I know that I don't. I love to stay in my comfort zone and live my life doing things that I know. Fortunately, New York forces me out of this mode a lot of times. I really don't think that I would have grown as much as a person had I not moved here. I don't know what my biggest fear is anymore...I'll have to give it some thought...

Too often we are scared, scared of what we might not be able to do, scared of what people might think if we tried, we let our fears stand in the way of our hopes. Why? There's really no time to be afraid. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Everything!
