Hi Vidya
Loved the list and will hang on to it. It will remind me when I lack bravery to face those fears. Funny I had a dream the other night and I confronted someone, don’t know who he was, but it was beyond what I would normally do. Yet it felt empowering. I did not just say what needed to be said but was inches from his face. Not like me at all but I think it was something I needed to see. Like I can stand up to fear and fear backed down. Don’t even remember what it was about, but I can still see this “person” in my mind, yet don’t know who he is. Strange. But lately I have had to face a lot of fears and maybe this was telling me I have tons of strength to conquer what happens in the future.
