21 Days of Fearless: Day 16

by Dian Reid-Jancic· Follow Dian on

The days of fearlessness are becoming less about accomplishing things and more about changing. I find myself thinking completely differently about the ways in which I go about my days. Seventeen days ago, I had to think about whether or not I was going to do something that created fear in my body. Today, I feel the fear and know that I will do it (whatever it is), anyway.

I began this journey with a few things on a list that I wanted to be fearless about. It started with indoor skydiving, and who knows where it will end. The important thing is that it is in motion. I’m beginning to realize this journey has always been in motion.

Some accomplishments in life require a to-do list. You have to know where to get started so you know where you’ll end up, so you can figure out everything in between. And some accomplishments, like some events in life, just happen. There’s not always a clear cut beginning or a bright red finish line to cross, at least, not until you develop your hindsight.

For me, the list was the clear cut beginning of my journey into fearlessness, but I can’t seem to pinpoint where I really began to embody a sense of fearlessness. I just know I’m here now. There is not a next “thing” on the list right now, and rather than look at this as a failure, I’m looking at it as taking a breather. Swimmers come up for air, and I have a feeling I’ll need some air for the last round of fearless.

So, what have I learned so far? I don’t have a list of things I want to accomplish. I have a life to live.
