Facing Everyday Fears

Good morning Mintdom,

One of the positions that I am keeping is Chairperson of the Communications Committee for the community where I live.  I have not headed up a committee like this before with people that I do not know (YET). I want to do a good job – no, I want to do a GREAT job.  LOL I comMINTed to this before I began streamlining my life, and if it came up now, I would not have volunteered; however, since I already made the comMINTment, I will stay for one year.  One of the tasks that we are responsible for, is to begin a newsletter.  Last night we had our second newsletter meeting. You would be very proud of me because the first thing that I asked the group was whom did we decide was the chair?  They all looked at me and I said that it was not me.  This is a GREAT committee because within a minute, we chose the perfect person to chair the sub-committee, and that person was not me!  My job is to write a health column and collect sponsors; I love both of those jobs!  Ultimately, as chair of the committee, it is my responsibility to make sure that the sub-committees get the work done – that is heavy for me.

You are probably wondering why I am sharing all this with you.  First, it is one of the reasons that I was unable to get my exercise in yesterday.  The second reason is that I am following through on streamlining my life, BUT the main reason however, is that I want to be transparent as I can be and let you know that I have fears and insecurities about some of the things that I do.  This is all out of my comfort zone. It is easy to head up or be a part of small committees where I know everyone and people like me already. As chair of this committee, I have to answer to the BOD and in front of the WHOLE community – yikes!  I do not mind telling you that I am that this is a huge challenge for me, but if *I* can face my fear and take on this challenge – you can take on your own!

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.” –Eleanor Roosevelt

Is there something in your life that you would like to do, but put off because of your fears and insecurities?  Are there times in your life that you overcame those fears to taste the sweet taste of success?  Please share here or on Mintdom, .  When we share our experiences, it not only helps others; it helps ourselves.

OK…I am off to get my exercise in!

AffirMINTion:  I face my fears in order to grow!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to

Life is good!
