I would like to say that I am relatively fearless. I dropped out of college and moved across the country on a whim, I’m an avid risk taker, and living outside of my comfort zone is now a lifestyle.
That’s the backstory. The current situation is me scared shitless of what my life will be like for the next 2 weeks. Tomorrow I leave for Havana, Cuba — no wifi, barely any English, no credit cards, no friends. Like a kid waiting for Christmas, my excitement has gotten the best of me & I’ve barely been able to sleep. I’ve seen every vlog, read thousands of blog posts, spoke to my Cuban Uncle, watched Dirty Dancing Havana Nights, and I still feel unprepared. I don’t know why being prepared matters so much to me now, because I’m the queen of spontaneity. Nonetheless, the jitters are real.
Did I mention that I’m traveling alone? Did I also mention that my Spanish is, at best, subpar?
This week’s Sunday’s Secrets is an ode to conquering fears. Fear is an inhibitor. It can be crippling. It is the biggest dream killer and bearer of regrets. Your fears can stop your greatness if you let them. This a reminder to myself that being brave does not mean you don’t have fears, it means that you push past them. Learn to starve your fears and feed your bliss.
To live fearlessly is to live freely— and what tastes better than freedom?
