Facing fear

fear1It is a new week, and I am glad that Mondays come once a week. In a way I feel that Mondays are times for new starts. Almost like New Year, but so much more frequent.

This week’s main goal is to prepare a speech I will do  for Women’s day, March 8th. It is a big event in Levanger, my “hometown.” I have not decided what to talk about yet, but it will have to do about courage, and not giving in to fear.

I will make sure to post the notes here, so you can read what I have to say.

While waiting for my notes, here is a good quote that I read this morning:

“Courage is the resistance to fear, mastery of far, not absence of fear.” Mark Twain said that.

This is a good thing for me to remember, because I often think that it is the fear that is the problem, but it is not wrong to feel fear, it is just not right to be controlled by it.
