I am simply enamored with my guest this week, Laurel Moll and her totally refreshing approach to dealing with FEAR!
Which is not to run or hide from it, and especially not to fear it, instead she believes that fear leads to joy and not surprisingly, her philosophy is to FOLLOW FEAR and enjoy the ride it takes you on!
After experiencing a series of truly traumatic life events in 2013, Laurel plunged into overwhelming despair. Through her tears and vulnerability she found herself surrendering to 'what is' and allowed her curiosity to explore if there was a 'greater force at play' in her life and wondering 'Are my fears trying to tell me something'?
What follows are the beautiful lessons of surrender and trust, and the transformative power of following your fears. The pivotal turning point came by creating daily gratitude listing practice, which opened up a flow of love, support, joy and discovery of her true self.
By choosing to follow her rather lengthy list of fears, 30 of them, she found herself swimming with Whale Sharks, flying an airplane and embarking on writing her first memoir: Following Fear: How I faced 30 fears and learned to Trust the Unknown.
This collection of vulnerable short stories aims to inspire others to follow their fears instead of running from them and we touch upon how you too!
Laurel takes fear and turns it into a beautiful metaphor that is so appealing that you will find yourself ready to step in and embrace YOUR fears!
