I read this really great post, check it out if you get a chance. Kendi Everyday: Fearless.
She really hit the nail on the head with this. I lived with fear for a long time. I was afraid to step outside of my comfort zone and to try things that may have caused me to look silly or quite possibly to fail. I did only what came easily for me. God only knows all the things I could have accomplished in my life already if I had only tried.
This year I am making a change in my life. I am relying on God more. 2 Timothy 1:7 says " For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline."
I can accomplish anything and I am kicking fear in the caboose.
