Today I saw a quote from Henri Matisse "Creativity Takes Courage" and it was a much more positive spin than how I've always felt. I felt that you need to overcome fear to create. Better to develop a positive trait like courage than to try and overcome a negative one like fear.
So much of my life I've played safe because of fear. I wonder where I would be or what I would have accomplished if I had chased courage instead. I'm going to start now.
