When We are Awakening

Big news -- I am so thrilled to be a part of the Sprout Online Magazine team!  I'll be contributing new pieces every month to the pages of this incredibly luscious publication.  And even bigger news, friend and Sprout creator Amanda interviewed me for this month's Thrive interview.  Yay!

This month, Sprout is all about awakening.  As I feel that the past months of my life have been all about awakening, rebirthing, opening my eyes to the sun at last, this issue is near and dear to my heart.

Here's a peek at my conversation with Amanda from Sprout: Awaken . . .

Beth, you’ve declared this your year of fearless living. What does that mean to you? 

When I picked this word, I thought it would teach me how to defeat fear, to erase it from my life. That by the end of 2014 I’d have learned to live without fear, or beyond it. But now I’m learning that it can’t be erased from life, that it is part of the human experience, and that it can actually carry important messages for us. So, for me, to live fearless means to do the things I need to do or want to do, to be the way and the woman I would like to be, even though I am afraid. It means feeling the fear and doing the thing in question anyway, as bravely as possible.
