Trying new things requires courage. Stepping into something bigger than yourself, serving. I feel courageous most of the time and step into things new yet have fear too. It is almost like being two different people. It’s because I still sometimes have self-judgment and shame about showing my work, about bringing myself fully to the table, about standing out and in the light. This weekend I was asked to speak a few poetry words at a dinner party. I remember the fear, the self judgment beforehand and the JOY and LOVE I felt – because I did it ANYWAY. #self-judgment #doitanyway #moveinadirectionthatmatters #heartsdirection#supportfromfriends
