[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Do it afraid

Do it afraid - Yeradami

I head to New York City for a gig this week - the Why Are You Here in NYC -
Book Tour I must admit, I feel a little scared about the entire thing, I am appearing
at some pretty historic venues, it's new, its unknown but then,I realized a
long time ago that a big dream, a big transformation is supposed to scare
the crap out of me, the bigger it is, the more I am scared about it but at
the same time know that it is just a part of the growth process I am pretty grateful to all the people who supported me in getting to this
point, it really does take a village! The people around you are important,
and the people are around you is a choice. As I sit here thinking about the task ahead I can tell you this I know for
sure- doing the work, having the faith, and leaning into the dream makes
for a pretty awesome combination when on your journey Stay tuned! Peace
