I sat there staring at the fear-inducing blue button (wondering to myself w-h-y-y-y I signed up for this Facebook live stream challenge).

 

There was a fight going on between two forces.

 

Force one threatened to take. me. out.

 

My heart was pounding. I was dizzy, on the verge of tears, freaked out, and viewing a replay in my mind of all the humiliating moments from my past when I spoke and messed up.

 

Those moments screamed loudly and pulsated in sync with my pounding heart.

 

Force one was in my head.

 

Force two kept telling me that I need to do this.

 

I need to step out and speak (I’ve known this for a long time now). And I need to take this step through fear or I’d remain in the same invisible place I’d been for years.

 

This force was in my heart.

 

It was a do or die moment.

 

My heart pounded.

 

My hands shook.

 

I kept trying to listen to force number two and reached for that stupid blue button with vibrating fingers . . . but force number one would take over with a rushy, overwhelming, pukey sense through my body.

 

And I stopped.

 

Over and over again.

 

For fifty minutes.

 

Yup. Five. Zero.

 

Thoughts raced in my brain. My eyes rolled. My gut wrenched. I paced. I went and cried fear-releasing cries to my partner.

 

And then it happened . . .

 

I pushed the button.

 

Sort of by accident because my shaking finger shook and pushed it during one of my attempts.

 

But I still pushed it. And I did the Facebook live stream.

 

Force number two won out. Because it had a t-i-i-i-n-y bit more pull than force number one. For me, it was my heart winning out over my head.

 

And it ended up being a breakthrough moment for me.
