What is fear? Then, the trees came down

I find it awe inspiring watching these men working in the ridiculously tall trees without any visible fear.  What made them think this is what I want to do every day?  I just can’t wrap my head around it.

I suppose the feeling is similar whenever you decide to do something that is scary to you.  For me, getting up in front of people to speak, getting up every morning to exercise, saying no to my favorite unhealthy foods, picking up the phone to call someone that I think could use my help.  Even writing these blogs.  First it’s the fear of failing, not knowing what I’m doing. Then, it’s the fear of not knowing what will happen next.

I know which choice I am making. What will you choose?

So, they came on November 6 and began two days of amazing work , carefully taking down the trees so that we could have a decent backyard in the future. It inspired me to have less fear doing those silly things that scare me every day. I am excited to see what happens next.
