31 Days to Overcome Fear
I know I’ve been a little quiet over here in blog land lately, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy! To my regular readers, you may have already noticed some changes – namely my header and blog name. Yep, that’s right, major changes are going on around here, and I’ll be writing a post soon to explain it all and let you know what’s in store.
I had grand plans to launch my new blog makeover (all complete) on October 1st. Well, life happened, and while I’ve been pretty busy behind the scenes, I’m not quite ready to roll out the whole thing, so you’ll have to pardon a little dust.
I really wanted to participate in 31 Days, though, so I’m not letting the half complete blog and blog design stop me from participating. If you aren’t familiar with 31 Days, it’s a huge project hosted by www.thenester.com each October. She picks a topic and writes about it each day in October, and invites us to join her by picking our own topic. I’m happy to say that I’m up to the challenge, and I present to you:
I’ll be writing about overcoming fear – it’s not that I feel qualified to write about this, but that I need to issue the challenge to myself and hope that I can inspire you along the way.
This topic has been on my mind a lot. My unofficial goal for 2012 has been to push past my fears and to become so accustomed to going out of my comfort zone that I’m comfortable going outside my comfort zone. I certainly haven’t fully succeeded, but I’ve accomplished so much more than I would have if I had just stayed in the same place – giving in 90% of the time to my fears.
I can’t tell you how much I’ve gained and how great it’s been to push through some of my fears this year (despite many failures). It makes me wonder how much I’ve missed out on in the past, and I don’t want to do that again.
This is also a fitting topic since I’ll be heading to the Allume conference at the end of the month, and I couldn’t be more terrified! It’s a conference with 400 other Christian women bloggers, and I know absolutely no one (including my 3 roommates).
I’ll keep updating this post throughout the month with a link to the topic for each day.

Love the idea for your 31 Day series and I think it is awesome that you’re not letting an incomplete blog design hold you back.

LOVE your topic for 31 days. I’m also using it as a kick to get back to blogging, especially before Allume. I only know my mom who I’m going with. Looking forward to following your 31 days and meeting you at Allume!
I love how this blog series is a personal challenge. I love how authentic that is. Thank you so much for sharing your ideas!
Missed you! Love your idea for the 31 day topic challenge. I look forward to reading it.
You’ll have a great time at Allume. I’m sure everyone will be feeling the same way & will be just as welcoming to you as you will be to them.

Fear has been a “giant” in my life as well. Thanks for stepping up to the plate!
