This week, I faced a fear of going to the doctor. I had put it off for years and though I had no real concern there is always that possibility of something unseen that could harm me.
The “what if” question can snowball until it feels like a mountain that is so huge it feels like there is no way around it and so the only thing you can do is turn away or start to climb.
I had allowed the mountain to grow and I was tired of talking about it but always choosing to turn around for one reason or another. This year I wrote a list in my 2014 workbook * of things to-do this year and included my doctor visit. Then I broke down each step to help me up my mountain. I needed the little steps just to get me moving. I had already faced other fears earlier in the year and it gave me confidence to move within the anxiety toward this mountain of fear and climb, one step at a time.
What mountain feels unclimbable for you?
Is it a health issue you need to address? Or perhaps a life-change that you know you want but don’t know how to make it happen.
You can climb that mountain and you don’t have to do it alone. Gather up your climbing gear to support your journey. This week, I sought support from family, online friends, a little love card, stones and essential oils. Chocolate cake didn’t hurt either. I had a goal and met it but it wasn’t easy.
Start where you are. Journal, paint, sit in the warmth of the sun and just be. It’s okay to feel overwhelmed. You are enough. Break down your mountain and take it one step at a time. Before you know it, you will stand at the top of it all and see your strength and courage.
Deep breath love, you can do this.
