Do it Afraid!

Driving home the other day a man on a motorcycle passed me and he was wearing a bright orange and yellow reflective vest, a helmet and had shiny reflector tape all over the back of his bike. He even used the arm signals. I commented casually to my husband, "Boy that guy is really into safety". It was weird, but as I thought more about this person it became very obvious to me that he was either a very strict rule follower, had been in an accident and was braving the road again or that he was scared to death to be riding a motorcycle. What makes a person do something that they are obviously so afraid of? And is that a good thing or bad??

In life there are plenty of things to be afraid of: death, divorce, aging, poverty, pain etc... When we decide to live life and do it afraid that's when I think we actually start living. If that motorcycle man was facing his fears I commend him. It may not be the smartest thing to do, but at least he was doing something.

Have a great day!
