Giving Fear A Permanent Time Out

That Time I Decided To Silence Fear and Just Jump!!! Once I Jumped In The Water Fear Tried To Punk Me Again But My “YOU GOT IT! 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽” Supporters Were On Deck Like “You’re OK!!” 😂😂😂


Everyone Needs A Great Support System!! I was terrified of the ocean back then and had never attempted such a feat! It wasn’t even on my radar.


That day I battled with fear and was done being handcuffed by it voluntarily. Fear didn’t make me put my hands behind my back and handcuff me, I surrendered to it conditioned by my past.


As I began walking towards the beautiful Aruban lifeguard, everyone in Aruba is beautiful by the way 😂 I cut off all Fear cheerleaders in my head! I was like “ Shut Up!!! I’m going in!”.


I sat in the swing, the lifeguard pulled me back, pushed me and I JUMPED!!


All I was thinking before I hit that water was, “SWEET JESUS!!! What have I done!!” It didn’t matter, I was already flailing around in the water in full panic mode.


All of a sudden, I said “Rhonda calm down, Daddy is not going to allow you to die like this, you’re ok, breathe, swim or flail back to the boat lol, climb up those stairs and celebrate because fear just lost this round!!!


So what am I saying?

Don’t give in to fear.

Surround yourself with those who support you.

Understand fear will show up, so what, do it anyway.

Know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Know that God will never leave you, even when you’re jumping off of boats for fun 🏊🏽‍♀️🏊🏽‍♀️🏊🏽‍♀️
