Overcoming Fear

In one of the Facebook groups that I am a part of, I will be going live tomorrow afternoon to discuss fear. Can I tell you that the thought of talking about fear just freaks me out? The irony is not lost on me. Fear. I’ve known about this for a little while, and as I jotted down some notes on fear, specifically fear that holds us down and keeps us from growing, I thought, hey!

The day I stopped being “Mom” and became Mom
