“The fears that once controlled me can't get to me at all” – I love this line from the Sound track to Frozen.

Am I fearless now? Of course not! Fear still arises in me, but it doesn’t scare me like it did.  You know how they say thrill seekers associate pleasure with that rising wave of fear, I don’t associate pleasure with it, but I don’t associate pain with it like I did before either, I just acknowledge that it is there and I just let it be, after that I still (most of the time anyway :)) do the thing that made me afraid, and 9 out of 10 of the times, the experience that I feared so much would turn out to be nothing scary after all.

If you had told me a couple of years ago that I would be modeling in a swimsuit for a swimwear line I have always wanted to launch, I would think you have completely lost it :) but guess what? it actually happened, was I afraid? Absolutely, did that stop me? Heck No!

I have no idea if my kickstarter project to help fund my swimwear line launch will be successful, but guess what? I would never know had I not tried.  If it does, Wonderful! I will be able to provide and cater to the millions of women, who like me are looking for an alternative to the conventional swimwear styles out there,(you can check it out at http://kck.st/1iKjuOX)

If not, life goes on, who knows what I will be up to next time around, the possibilities are limitless.  I will feel the fear and do it anyway (courtesy of Susan Jeffers Ph.D, an amazing author we lost too soon, RIP).

I would love to hear from you, when was the last time you felt the fear and did it anyway? And what happened?
