I’ve redefined fear, and here’s what I’m calling her…

Here are 4 things I’ve discovered about fear:

1. It requires a new way to breathe.

I’ve stopped holding my breath. Instead, I inspire.

2. It requires a new way to be.

To be here.

I tell myself, “I’m here.”

3. It requires a new way to see.

What would I look like if I wasn’t afraid to fully be seen?

4. It IS me.

That’s right, fear isn’t outside of me.

And guess what?

She’s not outside of you either.

She is YOU too.

So this is what I now choose to call fear.

I call her “Here.”

That’s right, I’m committed to no longer putting her “out there.”

She is Here, but I AM also here.


I call her “Dear.”

I invite her to let me know how she feels, then I keep moving on with what I’m doing, feeling, and healing.

That’s it.

She feels scared.

She simply hasn’t made her full metamorphosis to SACRED.


But she is becoming.

And so can your Dear, who once called Fear.
