We all face daunting challenges at some points in our lives. Whether the crisis involves health, career, relationships, the initial reaction is always fear.
I’m not talking about being scared, which is a natural response to the unknown. Being scared gets your adrenalin going so you can think clearly and act decisively. It has a purpose, and then it passes.
Fear, on the other hand, paralyzes you, and if you let it, fear will take up residence in your mind and heart.
Of course I was scared. I had been diagnosed with Stage 4 oral cancer. From one day to the next, I found myself in a life-or-death situation with a very limited amount of time to decide how I would handle it.
