  1. I am fearless now.I am a loner and conquered feeling of loneliness. I like my own company and to be with myself is my cherished moments. This doesn’t mean I am not social.I equally like to be with my family and friends. I am more empathetic to my friends and family after I start being with myself….love myself.

  4. I guess life is a series of fears we conquer, then go on to jump off the next cliff. https://flourishingsoul7.wordpress.com/2023/01/15/bloganuary15-what-fear-have-you-conquered/

  9. […] Overcoming fear is a tricky thing. Not having driven until my early thirties ( It’s New York City thing!) I was leary of driving. Not frightened, but just leary of it. Living in coastal Maine, I found that driving was a great skill to have. Previously I had only lived in urban areas where public transportation made most local traffic easy; friends made up the slack by taking me where busses and trains didn’t run. […]

    1. I was listening to a podcast this year and at one point the speaker said, “of course, the only thing fear can do is make you feel afraid. It can’t hurt you in any way.” It was as though the heavens opened up. I try and remember that thought when I’m afraid. And what an interesting career you have.

  19. Here鈥檚 a short poem about my ongoing attempts at conquering the fear of all things new.

    New things, new situations, a brand new life
    Best case scenario, butter cut by knife
    Worst case, who knows, maybe walking on fire
    Or other scary what-ifs and consequences so dire
    To flip the page or not, I鈥檒l think about it, let鈥檚 see
    But if the caterpillar overthought, the butterfly wouldn鈥檛 be

  23. I hope everyone appreciates my effort today to meet the prompt challenge. I had a horrible night. I got up early this morning to check for the prompt and started developing a blog. Went to church, sang in the choir, and came home to trash what I’d written earlier and start over. So, for better or worse, all fears aside, here is my contribution for today:

    Of Fear Itself

  24. Back in my late 20s my earliest fear became evident when I was selected to facilitate a series of classes on change management among leaders in different countries. I was good at it in the local country but then had to carry it across other countries. Worried, I ended up not eating properly and worrying about it for the weeks leading up to the training. In the end, feedback gleaned that the training was outstanding, and I was delighted to see the evidence applied among trainers.

    From that experience, today I coach others to meet fear head on and avoid having it hold you back as expressed in this blog post.

    1. Ooookay…. I see now, the shortlinks posted here in this forum is what creates the preview with photo, title, and excerpt.

      1. I’ve been trying to figure out how to do that. What is a short link?

        Like

      2. Let’s see, once you publish your post, hitting the publish button, you’ll see a pane that pops up that says “What’s next? Post Address” that field is your mainstay website URL address for your post.

        But to get the shortlink, which is a shortened website URL address to your post (contains a small set of numbers/letters instead of your full title– that’s how I’ve set mine up), and to get the thumbnail photo and excerpt to show up in the page of daily challenge:

        1. Go to edit mode of the post.
        2. Go to the black and green lightning “Jetpack” button on the top right and click that.
        3. Scroll down a bit and you’ll see a field that says “Shortlink.”
        4. Copy and paste that one into the daily challenge.

        To avoid duplicating as I just accidentally did. If you hyperlink the Bloganuary daily website URL challenge in your posts (I’ve been hyperlinking daily), it will autopost, ping, I think it’s called and will appear in the thread at the bottom of each page where the challenge is straight away once you hit publish. So to prevent that from happening (to avoid the duplicate) can wait to assign/hyperlink the WP Bloganuary daily prompt website URL in you post AFTER you publish the post.

        I hope I can make sense to explain 馃檪

  36. […] These days, I prioritize myself outside of work and above most things. Over the years, I’ve learned that at the end of the day, places might change, teams will change, projects and jobs will end but my mind and my body are the only constants that I have and that taking care of every part of all that concerns me is critical to getting through the storms of life. I had to learn to reset my relationship with self-care and wellbeing and I no longer allow work, or anyone dictate my mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. This shift in paradigm has given me the energy to take control of my situation where and when I can and not to be fixated with how others see me. I no longer look for permission to be me nor do I seek other people’s validation to be authentically true to myself. […]
