WAYSO- What are you SCARED of?

I'm sending this before I chicken out...



WAYSO- It is a mantra, and a movement. WAYSO brings attention to the little, seemingly insignificant fears that govern our lives on a minute by minute basis. WAYSO empowers us to stop and analyze our fears, allowing us to live the free life we are all entitled to.



WAYSO.



One night as I was tossing and turning in my bed, I noticed how SCARED I was. I was SCARED about being wealthy enough, SCARED if I loved enough, SCARED if I was healthy enough, smart enough, good looking enough, sensible enough,



-SCARED enough.



I asked myself if I wanted to live this way, and feel this way. I asked myself- “What Are You Scared Of?”



WAYSO.



I’m not talking about the SCARED that is a mental disorder, I’m taking about a SCARED that is seen as “practical”, “prepared”., or “aware”. Often I find these little fears disguise themselves as “precautions”, or “practicalities”. But ask yourself- WAYSO?





I think I had become accustomed to the little voice in my head that mentioned all of the things to be scared of in every situation. So I started to ask myself –



WAYSO. And I answered. Then I asked again- WAYSO. And I answered. WAYSO. I asked until I found what the REAL FEAR was, and I decided that I didn’t want to be SCARED in some instances, and I was fine being SCARED in others. WAYSO.



It is a simple word- WAYSO. It has empowered me, and I believe it can empower all of us.



Please pass this short letter on to people you care about- we all could use help, and you could be the one who helps someone do something incredible. You could be the one who helps them get over being:



SCARED to say I love you,

SCARED to give,

SCARED to try,

SCARED to say,

SCARED to DO,

SCARED to feel,

SCARED to share,

SCARED TO SAY WAYSO,



SCARED TO JOIN THIS MOVEMENT AND PASS THIS LETTER ON.



Try it. If you don’t want to, ask yourself-



WAYSO.



Thanks, and Let Your Light So Shine Before Men,
