Fear as Editor vs Fear as Reader

I was editing what was possible in my life before I was even considering that it was possible.

Truth is a sword that cuts cleanly. In listening to an interview of Debbie Millman last night, those words cut through me.

I’ve come to realize that I’ve edited many possibilities in my life because of fear. Like thumbing through a photo album and noticing for the first time characters standing in the background of old photos, I’ve been noticing where fear has been standing.

With this realization, there’s a prompt that I’ve been introducing in all my pursuits and decision making: where is fear in here? 

Fear may be always be present. But so is courage.

Which one we assign as Editor-in-Chief or reader will tell the story of our life.
