What would you do today if you could feel your fear and do what you are called to do anyway?

Can you allow yourself to notice and acknowledge that fear is here?

Can you locate where you feel fear in your body?

What if what you think is scary “out there” is also an invitation to turn inward and face what you haven’t been willing to see or acknowledge within yourself?
