Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway

Another in the You Write the Title series, this post was suggested by MattHall.

Feeling the fear and doing it anyway?

I am awesome at this when it comes to experiences.

I’ve traveled alone all over the United States and Europe. I’ve gone zip-lining, skiing, kneeboarding, rock climbing. I’ve gotten my black belt in tae kwon do and trained in jiu jitsu, pushing myself till I cried. I’ve trained for a half marathon. I’ve put myself through college and graduate school. I bought my own home. I’ve spoken in front of college classes and corporate meetings. I’ve won million-dollar business pitches. I’ve done complete U-turns at important points in my life to do what it felt right to do.

But.

I am rotten at this when it comes to people.

There are boys I should have kissed. There are family I should have visited. There are strangers whose conversations I should have joined. There are people I didn’t give the chance to get to know me.

Maybe I should stop reaching for goals and start reaching for people.

What do you think? How do you feel the fear and do it anyway?
