If I’m not scared, I’m not changing

When I was a kid I had this definitive knowing about certain things…

I started traveling young.

When I was 15 I went to New York alone for three months to stay with family. I was terrified. I’d never traveled on my own before, but I knew I had to do this.

On the weekends I’d go into the city. Kick around the stores, have coffee, chat to strangers, hang out in Washington Square Park.

There was this feeling of shaking off the small city vibes, knowing I was meant for HUGE things in life✨ Understanding how important It was to just be yourself….

I got ALL of this and more from scaring the crap out of myself and DOING IT ANYWAY.

To this day, I call on this experience when I’m faced with big decisions and upper limiting fears. I remember my mantra when I was going from that small city in Ireland to the big Apple…

“If I’m not scared, I’m not changing. If I’m not changing, I’m standing still.”

Standing still is a beautiful thing, for a while that is. You draw your strength from the stillness.

Stillness is like winter, but after winter has passed, it’s time to stretch and grow. If you’re in doubt as to your next right move, leap, investment or even vacation…


I promise that everything you desire, is on the other side of that fear. And remember in the end, only Love is real.
