I’ve been thinking a lot about fear lately. It seems to be what holds people, myself included, up from moving forward. The fear of what will happen, of what ifs, of imaginary monsters in the closet. Fear.
On working from home, I hear questions rooted in Fear. Can I do it? What if I can’t make it work? Is it really possible? What if it’s a scam? I don’t know how to do anything… And the list goes on.
On homeschooling, there’s so many questions that arise all rooted in Fear. I can’t even begin to name them. But really, what if you mess up your kids? (really?)
On Being a Stay-at-Home Mom, so many fears. What if I get bored? What will I do all day?
Really. Fear. The Unknown is scary. But the reality is that it’s just fear. A monster under the bed.
If you dwell in the fear, it moves you no where forward. Acknowledge it. It’s okay to be scared. But step out in faith. Have confidence in you, in your creator, in your ability to problem solve and find solutions.
You are equipped for whatever it is that is asked of you. You don’t have to see it. You just have to take one step at a time, one day at a time, and sometimes even one moment at a time.
Fear, doubts, uncertainity. Examine them for truths, and look for solutions. and prepared to be amazed.
