Dame Julie Andrews spoke at Colorado University’s commence this year, and during her speech, this was one of her many words of wisdom. As someone who lived in fear for decades, all I can say is that I wish I had learned this lesson much sooner!

I don’t think we can live a life void of fear. Fear is natural, and sometimes fear keeps us alive. However, living under the weight of fear and letting fear drive all of our choices is suffocating. Rather than make more of this, I’ll bow out of the way and let Dame Julie say it better than I can. The entirety of Andrews’ speech can be seen below.

PS. This week is crazy hectic for me, so don’t expect anymore posts until possibly next Monday. Lots of evening/weekend work commitments, visiting family, class responsibilities, a paper due Sunday, my SIL is having her baby Thursday (getting induced), etc.
