“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”
– Marianne Williamson
All of us have fears.
What do we do with our fears?
Do we allow it to manipulate us?
Do we flee from it and let it continue to haunt us?
Or do we face up to it and give our best shot?
So far, my way of handling is to stand up to it.
No matter how badly hurt I know that I may be, I will still want to face up to it.
It is the only way to be free of these shackles of uncertainty, of the deep unknown, of the deep-seated self doubts.
Can I really climb Everest?
It is this uncertainty that drives me to take on this challenge.
Can I be more than what I am now?
