[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Feel the fear and do it anyway...

Reality is never frightening. It is impossible that it could upset me.
Reality brings only perfect peace. ACIM

Today I had to speak in front of 250 teenagers! That scared the brown out
of me! trust me! Turned out, that when I face my fear it really isn't all that bad! Made me
wonder, what else am I running from because of fear!

Truth be told, when they asked me to talk I swore I heard 25 participants!
When I got there it was like whoaaa! where did all of these people from
from? They told me this is who you will be speaking to today! Oh! I see!
Too late to run! I did it I was happy and they were happy! And I got a free
ticket to a party tomorrow! All's well that ends well!!

Do it, do the thing you fear to do, trust me it's not all that bad! In
fact, its all good! Peace!!
