Stop being afraid

The hardest lesson for me has been to stop being afraid. It is still a feeling I will probably continue to fight for a while. In a world of critics it can be difficult to find your voice and not to let yourself get swayed from doing or saying what you feel is right. I don’t often say anything too controversial (I think) but ditching a “good job” and a degree to work online and spend my time helping people to live their life however the hell they want isn't exactly going with the crowd. So my advice is this: figure out what you want your life to look like and start doing it. Do it alone if you have to. Get to know what you stand for. Be kind, and patient with the people who don't get it, and be open to new ideas because you never know where it could take you. Only you know what you want and what you are capable of so try not to let fear of judgment or the nay-sayers get in the way.
