I know what you’re wondering. You’re wondering: what in tarnations is Fearadise and why (oh why!) is there more than one side.ย Okay maybe you weren’t wondering exactly that, but I’m going to answer any way, considering this is an about page and all ๐Ÿ˜‰

We all know what paradise is right? It’s a drunken feastย at Odin’s table, with a bit ofย good natured brawling with your buddies on the side and a pig roasting on a spear. Right? No? Okay, maybe it’s dancing around beyond the pearly gates, singing an off key version of Hungry Like the Wolf into eternity with your loved ones. Or I know! A giant movie theater where they play Lord of the Rings on repeat, and a roller blading waitress serves a never ending supply of pickled beets (in environmentally friendly containers to boot).

Not a fan of pickled beets? Well, one thing most of us can agree on is that paradise is a place of joy. A place without fear. ย Considering this, it is only natural that we would try to find our own slice of paradise by seeking joy (generally by grasping at it manically),ย and then running far far faaar away from our fear.

I don’t know about you but that method never worked out too well for me.

On This Side of Fearadise we aim to become the heroes of our own lives. To gain courage and learn about ourselves, our possibilities, and the world. And by moving into our fear instead of away from it, we find that it soon starts to dissipate.ย It becomes familiar. Pretty soon it isn’t even fear any more. Fear and paradise become one.

Oh yes, and a little about me. My name isย Eowyn. I am a travelling, nature-loving, jedi/gryffindor/trekkie, that spent the first decades of her lifeย struggling with chronic anxiety. As a result I developed a fascination with fearlessness at a very young age. And being an innately curious person with a monstrous drive for self improvement, that fascination led me into years of study on the subject. Study which has not only helped me immensely in my own life, but has ultimately led me here, to a place where I can finally share some of what I have learned, and hopefully entertain along the way!

So that’s that. This Side of Fearadise is a place to learn about becoming your own hero, and to start gathering the tools to build an even more kick ass life than you already have.

        Can’t remember who (perhaps Atwood) but a writer suggested in an interview that LOTR lacked for (strong) female characters…lol…the message board lit up and your namesake came up fast, in numbers and with Rohirrim ferocity…

        As to K.J. – an all around badass;-) Love that flinty voice;-)

  2. Cool! Georgia is at the top of my list too! I’m thinking of doing the Mongol Rally, taking the mostly across Russia route. Seems like it would be a crazy once in a lifetime sort of experience ๐Ÿ™‚
