Tip Tuesday - Face Your Fear


I was scrolling through my IG feed the other day and noticed a really great post by Soury from @kawaiigoodies1.  And the message was all about sharing our best tips to help our fellow makers out. Love that!

Having just finished a really challenging project and about to start a new one, I was all about focusing on not letting fear stop us from pursuing activities that we want to explore.  Often times, we let our fear stop us from chasing our dreams, fearful it won’t work out and we’ll end up failing.  But the beauty about life is that we can try again.  I’ve learned so much from my “failures”, which is, after all, very arbitrary.  Failure to me, may not be deemed a failure to someone else.  We can be our own worst critics and harder on ourselves than we need to be. 

As of late, I am all about stepping outside my comfort zone and facing my fear.  And you know what?  It has been such a liberating and encouraging experience!!  When we push beyond that fear barrier, we discover such amazing new skills and remind ourselves that we won’t know whether something is possible until we give it a try.  So go ahead, look your fear in the face and tell it to take a hike, you’ve got this! 

I can’t talk about it yet, but I’m working madly behind the scenes on a big project.  Which I would never have gone for if I let my fear get in the way ;)  Hoping to be able to share in the next few weeks – stay tuned!

Tell me, have you stepped outside your comfort zone and accomplished something you are proud of?  Or share it on Instagram with the #makershare hashtag and tag me so I can follow along!!
