Each day we are getting closer to closing out 2013. A lot has happened this year and I have to admit, I am having a really hard time grasping that it’s Winter. Okay, technically not until the 21st but we have had enough snow and cold here in Kelowna to declare it Winter.
I have had a lot of anxiety lately about it becoming Winter. The cold I can handle. The snow I can handle. The ice, not so much. Last year I had a bad fall on the ice and since then, have been petrified of slipping and falling. Around this time last year, we had a dump of wet snow that turned to ice that didn’t melt until the Spring. Kelowna was quite literally a skating rink.
Being a holistic health practitioner, I know that being afraid of slipping and falling on the ice is a metaphor. Having been able to hide behind a monitor for closer to 20 years, I am entering a very different realm of earning a pay cheque.
I am fearing failure. I am fearing no clients. I am fearing slipping and falling.
I know I need to stop letting fear hold me back. This fear is something I plan on focusing on through the Winter. I know I also need to let go of why I feel I don’t deserve to earn an honest living. So many fears and belief systems that I need to dig up and release.
Anyone else letting fear hold them back from achieving their dreams? What have you done to get through it?
