Fear

fear not

This concept arises in us all at one time or another. It is relative. Sometimes it is big and outside of us. Times like 9-11, the beginnings of the bombing of Iraq, Afganistan.

Sometimes it is up close and personal.  Shot gun pointed between your eyes, “Get outta the van,” insists the gunman. “Cash, jewelry, watches,” shouts the man in the ski mask, eyes red and blazing.

Sometimes it is quiet – before the interview, before the meeting, before the speech in front of an auditorium full of people.

Sometimes it is extremely personal.  Will he like me? Will I fit in?

Fear is pervasive. It is inevitable. Will it overtake you? NO. You are stronger than fear. You are bigger than whatever scares you. You can overcome. You can get past this. Whatever it is. fear is either...

Be Strong.

Be Brave.

Be Courageous.

Be YOU.

  2. It comes in all shapes and sizes, just like happiness, I suppose. Rather interesting to think about!

    So many shades of fear. The phone ringing in the middle of the night, strikes fear in my being. I do my best to conquer it when it enters into the picture.
