"Feel the Fear" stories

"I am often moved to tears by your beautiful stories of how you were motivated to feel the fear and do it anyway. It occurred to me that your words could be of help to others who were facing similar difficulties. So I decided to collect your stories with the idea of sharing them in some way with others..." - Susan Jeffers
