I watched the Golden Globes last night, although not super impressive (except for Amy and Tina, they can do no wrong), there was a moment that stood out for me. When Amy Adams won for her work in American Hustle, she went through her list of gratitude and at the end came to her daughter. She simply stated “My daughter Aviana who’s not old enough to understand this – but I love you so much … thank you for teaching me to accept joy and let go of fear.” That is a little nugget of simple wisdom but it’s so true. It’s hard because fear just freezes you sometimes, or at least it does to me. And I’m not talking the kind of fear when you find a spider crawling up your arm while you’re driving (That is pure terror people!). I’m talking the fear to take the next step. The fear to challenge yourself, to succeed or to let your self fail, the fear that gets in the way of the joy. It was a beautiful reminder and I’m so glad that she put it out there. Does fear get in the way of your joy?
