FEAR ATTACHED TO EVERYTHING...
Anything really worth doing in our lives will always have some fear attached to it. Should you face fear, don't be discouraged by it. That's a tough one getting around because it's one of my daily struggles, but know that it's possible!

Making the choice of a life-partner, starting up a new business, for some having a baby, buying a puppy, moving to a new town; name it... all of these life changes can bring up deep fears. It helps to remember that this type of fear is good. It is your way of questioning whether you really want the new life these changes will bring. It is also a potent reminder that releasing and grieving the past is a necessary part of moving into the new.
I had my life changed without having to make a decision and it taught me a huge amount of processing and dealing with fear.
Fear has a way of throwing us off balance, making us feel uncertain and insecure, but DON'T BE DISCOURAGED BY FEAR. Its purpose is to notify us that we are at the edge of our comfort zone, poised in between the old life and a new one. Thats the scary part. See fear as a wooden swing-bridge... Whenever we face our fear, we overcome an inner obstacle and move into new and life-enhancing territory, both inside and out. The more we learn to respect and even welcome fear, the more we will be able to hear its wisdom, wisdom that will let us know that the time has come to move forward, or not.
While comfort with fear is a contradiction in terms, we can learn to honor our fear, recognizing its arrival, listening to its intelligence, and respecting it as a harbinger of transformation.
It informs us that the change we are contemplating is significant, enabling us to approach it with the proper reverence.
You might wish to converse with your fear, plumbing its depths for a greater understanding of the change you are making.
