Since we are sitting around the campire with this trusted group of people, I am going to confide a little secret…
When I was a little girl I was only scared at night of a monster that was inside my closet. Otherwise I felt invincible. As I grew up, somehow, I acquired new fears.
Being an introvert, made me enjoy my time alone. But had its cons. When I grew up I started working in Marketing and had to do presentations to large groups of people. I had a fear of speaking in public. My face would blush, starting with a scarlet tone of red, turning into coral color, until my face became bright red tomato. Being stubborn and perseverant, I knew there must be a way to conquer that fear. I would learn my presentation and practice it many times, until I knew it by heart. I would imagine the audience as if I was already there. Practice allowed me, the day of the presentation, to grab that microphone and excel, as if I owned the auditorium.
I am a city girl, and notice most of you are Adventurers that go into remote lands. I keep wondering what situations you might have encountered that produced you fear. Was it a wild animal?... Was it hard weather conditions? …a very difficult hike?.. Or is it something inside your inner world that you fear?... What did you feel? How did you react? How did you manage that fear? What did you learn about yourself?
It doesn’t matter how dark or how difficult things might appear, I know I am capable to overcome any difficult situation. I only have to remember how I felt like a child… invincible!.
