Pushing Through Fear Into the Beautiful Unknown.

Pushing Through Fear


2017 Was A Challenging Year


I am not going to lie, 2017 wasn’t the easiest of years. For the longest time I debated weather to stay safe and comfortable or start pushing through fear. 2017 was a year of limbo it seems and a year of sitting on the fence wondering what I should do.  I came to the conclusion that I need to try and see for myself what it’s like to give up my safe comfortable life to travel. So this February 21 I will embark on a journey to New Zealand. Am I scared? Yes! Am I excited? Heck yes! What I’m learning though is that life is not about staying safe in our cozy little “Shire.” It’s about pushing through fear into the unknown. In the book “The Hobbit” Bilbo Baggins chose to venture out of his comfortable home into a life of danger, excitement and adventure.

I’m Going to New Zealand Despite These Fears


I stood up and faced myself and said “I’m going to New Zealand despite these fears!” All through out 2017 I battled on and off with depression. Depression often tells me me that I’m small, that no one care’s that I can’t do it and I don’t deserve my dreams. It a vicious dark beast that often won’t relent. However on February 21 I’m giving the beast a swift kick in the butt and telling it to screw off. It has no power over me and my dreams. I’m pushing through fear despite depression.
