Fear is such a sneaky f*ck. Like it gets so ingrained into your subconscious that you don’t even acknowledge the blocks fear creates. Perfectionism is a symptom of fear but even if you worked through that there’s even deeper fears dictating our lives.
Today in a Manifesting Master Class, I realized something I always do is push things for the future when things get better or things are more in place. I didn’t realize this was a false belief. I didn’t realize good things could happen to me right now.
While browsing around for some poetry that spoke on fear, I found this beauty by Anisha Joseph that I love.

You made me run away
from those who loved me anyway.
You pushed me down into the vanity,
blindfolded me from every reality.
I thought I wasn’t good enough.
You made my existence so tough.
O fear, now I realize, it was all a bluff,
and you have already played enough.
I lost many opportunities,
and now that I am sure of my priorities,
I believe I will break through
as life always gives a next chance to you.
Remember to rise up, and it’s okay to fall.
This world around you can’t define you at all.
Be courageous, have an ambition.
Be ready to go beyond every limitation.
Building a wall of fear
will keep you in the dark forever,
keeping you unaware of
what you are capable of.
Our fears will keep us from creating the life of our dreams. Let’s start living with courage and a boldness that will propel us to exactly the place we want to be.
