Courage – the fuel of your dreams

So this six word Saturday I wanted to share some pictures (slightly embarrassing) when I confronted my fears and drew on my courage to do things I had always dreamt of doing.

They may not be particularly interesting but I had to confront a fear and once I did I felt a real sense of achievement.


This is me suffering terrible seasickness but I did it to be able to take photos of the barrier reef.


This is me on one of my first fun runs – 10 km on Father’s Day – for me this was a real sense of achievement – I was really embarrased but I made the distance – even if I did look terrible


And finally in New Zealand I confronted my biggest fear – heights and went hang gliding. Yes I was terrified but at least I can say I did it.


Though confronting your fears may not make them disappear, it is evidence of your courage and I think we all need this if we are going to achieve our dreams.

  1. HI Deb, It IS a great feeling, conquering your fears, but I am happy to pick and choose which ones I’ll attempt to conquer! Well done on the 10K run and the hang gliding. Throwing myself off the side of the a hill or mountain is something I am scared of too. My husband went hang gliding in Nepal and wanted me to come. I was happy to watch his landing from the ground. Did you do the hang gliding in Queenstown? Louise
