REM Runner’s Top 13 Inspirational Quotes – #11 Scared to Death

I wasn’t born brave. I didn’t wake up the day after being diagnosed with narcolepsy and sign up for a marathon or tell my story into a TV camera. I was scared too – scared to death of what my future held and what people would think of my narcolepsy.

So if you want to take on a new challenge (like running a race, trying yoga or writing a blog) but you are feeling scared, congratulations! You are exactly where you are supposed to be. Take your first step, slowly, it’s okay.  Bravery and courage will come with momentum and you’ll never look back.
