I pride myself on being generally good at keeping my cool.
I am capable of staying very level-headed in the midst of stressful situations, and am almost always able to channel things like tight deadlines into laser-focused and productive energy. But the other day, I woke up and immediately felt anxious. I literally felt anxiety in my chest and knots in my belly, before I had even gotten out of bed!
So that was new.

Fear operates on the level of the mind. It's a signal meant to protect us from danger, physical or emotional. But our fear response will hold us back if we let it. And if we let our fears call the shots in the background of our minds, you can bet there is a whole world, a whole life, we're missing out on.
