Telling Fear to F*** Off

Telling Fear to F*** Off

Besides, isn't Paris always a good idea?

I almost didn’t go to Paris.

I sat in a park several days before my trip and justified all of the reasons for why I shouldn’t take the flight. What business did I have spending 2 weeks in Paris?

I was unemployed, had quit the few things I was doing for income on an intuition-led whim, and hadn’t yet “figured it out,” IT being, wtf was I going to do with this next chapter of my life. I felt like a lazy, irresponsible brat, jetting off to Paris and leaving all of my responsibilities and realities and cat behind. How dare I gather the last few thousand dollars to my name with no plan and no job to a foreign country?

The truth is, I was scared.  

As it unfolded, Paris had some massive magic in store for me, and those two weeks dramatically reorganized and redirected my life. What if I hadn’t gotten on the plane? What if I had listened to my fears and stayed put, stayed small, stayed stuck?

Selena tells us why we need to tell fear to f*** off. Living life OnPurpose is about acknowledging the fear and doing it anyways, noticing what is in your head but listening to what is in your heart.

Thank you for listening and engaging with OnPurpose. Send this post to a friend or coworker who needs to hear it :)


Can you remember a time when you told your fears to f*** off… and what happened as a result of it?

Is there something you feel called to do, but fear is creeping up and keeping you from taking a leap - or even a small next step?

I’d love to hear any thoughts or shares, your stories are welcomed here :)
