Pushing Past Fear (Heart Hero: JK Rowling)

It’s been more than a month since I’ve started this endeavor. Clearly I haven’t been posting too regularly yet.  I’m working my way there slowly, but surely. There’s part of me that’s afraid still to put it all out there and let anyone who might come by see all the scars, and wrinkles, and imperfections of who I am expressed in the words I put here.  The whole point though is to practice open-heartedness.  It’s not easy to open your heart out for all the contents to be examined.  However it feels so freeing to live with my heart open I can’t not.

For now, a video, one of my favorites, a commencement speech that JK Rowling gave at Harvard on “The Fringe Benefits of Failure.” It’s inspired me to take risks and let myself be who I am.

Enjoy! Let me know what you would do it you weren’t afraid of failure.
