Tackling your FEAR~ Worthy Wednesday!

FEAR - that is a major problem in our lives.  We can be afraid of success, afraid of failure, afraid of being hurt, afraid of hurting others, afraid of ... well just about anything.  Fear can stop you from having the life you want to live.  Fear can prevent you from being happy.  

You must look at your fears directly.  Shine light on your fears.  You can do this by talking to someone about your fears.  Expose your fears and share them with a person you trust!  Your fears get bigger when you avoid them so tackle them and challenge them. You have more power than you believe.  You will survive if take risks and taking risks will reduce your fears and you will feel empowered!  You will grow stronger each time you conquer a fear! You are amazing and you are worthy of being strong enough to face your fears head on.  Don't hide from your fears or you will make them worse!  Here's a great quote I love from the book "Life of Pi."  Read this quote to yourself when you are feeling that fear has power over your choices.  


















(Image: Red dragonfly with blue water in the background and a quote from Yann Martel's book "Live of Pi" ~ “I must say a word about fear. It is life's only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life. It is a clever, treacherous adversary, how well I know. It has no decency, respects no law or convention, shows no mercy. It goes for your weakest spot, which it finds with unnerving ease. It begins in your mind, always ... so you must fight hard to express it. You must fight hard to shine the light of words upon it. Because if you don't, if your fear becomes a wordless darkness that you avoid, perhaps even manage to forget, you open yourself to further attacks of fear because you never truly fought the opponent who defeated you.” )
