Is it possible to be Fearless?
Is it possible to be Fearless? This was a question that was asked of me when I first mentioned I wanted to create a website for Fearless Mommies. That lady that asked me the question stated “I don’t think it’s possible to be fearless, in the sense of without fear”. At the time, I questioned whether or not it was possible but I saw the word “fearless” and thought of courageous, which is what I think of all the moms that decide to lead with authenticity. Since that conversation, I’ve heard another person claim “it’s not possible to be fearless – without fear”.
I have a whole new perspective on what it means to be a Fearless Mommy since starting this journey and now I think it’s even possible to be without fear at times. Being Fearless, to me, means first and foremost, to be courageous. It also means to Fear-less and less on our journey and it means feeling the fear but going forward into it regardless that it scares the hell outa you.
The fastest way to break the cycle of perfectionism and become a fearless mother is to give up the idea of doing it perfectly – indeed to embrace uncertainty and imperfection.
Have I been fearful in my journey of authenticity? When I think of shining my light into the world, does it scare the heck out of me? Sometimes. But I have moments of complete and utter Fearlessness – that is without fear, moments that I know are not from leaning on my own capabilities but more about leaning on the strength of the Universe, so yes, I am without fear in those moments. I realize now that whenever I am fearful, it’s because I, for a moment, had forgotten my connection to the Universe and instead, was leaning on myself as a separate entity – which I am not.
To sum up what it means to be Fearless:
- Realize it is a journey towards being Fearless.
- Trusting in God or the Universe as your source and that being without fear.
- Being Fearless means complete utterly pure Love.
- Recognizing that fear comes from leaning on our own Ego and not tapping into our inner strength.
- It is possible to have moments of being Fearless.
- Being Fearless is our natural state.
You ever watch young children? They are pretty close to being Fearless when they start off in this world. It is only after we start learning all the fearful ways of the world that we distance ourselves from our natural state of being Fearless.
All we need to remember is, even though we have moments of fear, it doesn’t make us less perfect in our journey wherever we are at this moment. In our perfect state, we are Fearless… and that is the journey we are on.
