Staring down a fear: Did you meet October’s challenge?

On October 1, I posted this challenge of the month:  Do one thing that scares you.

Now, on October 31, (and, fittingly, on Halloween), it’s time to reflect back on this challenge.  Did you confront a fear — large or small — and act anyway?  Were you able to consciously blast through one of your boundaries, creep into the corners of your comfort zone, or defy your own perceptions of “possible” versus “impossible”?  What was the result?

Whatever your experience, be proud of your efforts.  Even the simple act of acknowledging a fear is a major step towards one day overcoming it.

To quote a Japanese proverb:

Fear is only as deep as the mind allows.

Delve into the murk.  I’ll bet the bottom isn’t as distant, nor as dark, as you think.

Happy Halloween.  halloween smiley
