Prompt 21: Embrace the Fear

Prompt Twenty-One: outline a “mission statement” for your life.

Be fearless.

By ‘fearless,’ I don’t mean don’t be afraid.

Don’t be one of those characters who is not afraid of anything and then winds out dead. Everyone is afraid of something. Fear is a normal human thing. And admitting that you are afraid, is (ironically) a very brave thing to do.

But what do I mean by ‘fearless?’

By ‘fearless’ I mean embrace the fear but don’t let it control you.

You control it.

Try new things.

Make mistakes.

Laugh at those mistakes.

Dance naked in your bedroom.

Say yes to that job that you’re not sure if it’ll suit you. Who knows. It might be what you’re looking for.

Dye your hair Joker green. Hell, shave all your hair off.

Never back down.

But know when it’s time to let go.

You’re going to be afraid, and that’s okay. But don’t let that stop you. Never let it stop you.
