I've got some big and exciting news today. My first article was published with the Huffington Post last week, and it's all about the fear we face when we show our true selves to the world.
So, as I'm sure you can imagine, just the act of publishing the article hit all of my fear buttons.
But it also taught me something big: I wanted this.
If I didn't want it, I probably wouldn't be so afraid of it.
Have you ever faced a battle inside where you couldn't tell if your desire to do it, or your fear of doing it were winning?
Well, then I wrote this for you:
"The Double Life Dance" Fine Art Photograph by Jen Kiaba. Click to purchase a limited edition print.
My fear was that in creating truthful work, I would finally be seen and would no longer be able to hide behind a safe facade. Yet when I consulted my desires, that was exactly what I wanted and what had lead me out of that religion in the first place. Creatively speaking, my fear and desire were walking hand in hand.
So this week I would love it if you popped over to the Huffington Post, read the article, and then let me know:
What are you longing to create or how do you want to show up more in your life?
Tell me all about it in the comments below.
I hope that in my sharing this story you feel a strength to push past the fears that are keeping you small in your life, and that you feel an inner freedom to create the work you feel called to create - and to SHARE it!
Have a wonderful week!
