"One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his greatest surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't do."
~Henry Ford, American industrialist
Fear ruled my life for too many years.
Yes, there were reasons for the fear, but still ... I look back and think what I lost.
Emotional and spiritual freedom.
For too long I thought life was going to always be lived that way. Afraid.
And then I discovered I could choose to live differently.
Then there came a time when I found the courage and the help to face the past and walk into healing and freedom.
It wasn't easy.
I needed others' help.
And I needed faith like never before.
And I had to stop being afraid of the truth ... because sometimes the truth is the hardest thing to face.
In Your Words: Have you surprised yourself? Have you discovered you could do something you were afraid to do? I'd love to hear your story.
