Are You Living Your Fears or Dreams?

January 12, 2017

To Many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears!

Les Brown

What stops us from living full out and taking the plunge into a joy filled life? Why do so many people get stuck in the muck of the ordinary? I know it is fear! I know how fear can hold us back from living our dreams. Little by little fear can creep in through a thought, through someones criticism, through a disappointment,  through a seeming crisis or any other devious way fear knocks on our door. If we let it in, it will reek havoc and quickly destroy all the good that is there waiting to be released. I have had many such experiences, which started very early in my life. Both my parents had many fears that got downloaded into my mind-body. As an adult I realized how these fears were preventing me from living my dreams. So I took  an inventory of what I thought was keeping me from a joy filled life. I decided to acknowledge the fear, thanked it for showing up to try and keep me safe, and started to live my dreams.

Does fear still try to knock down the door, you bet! Every time it does, my faith gets stronger and I do something that scares me. It’s time you start living your dreams instead of living your fears.

Do 1 thing every day that challenges you. Every time you do, you will get more confident and the next time when fear knocks on your door and faith answers, no one will be there.

Cowardly to Courageous

November 3, 2015

courageAre you feeling cowardly or courage? In the movie the Wizard of Oz, the cowardly lion was just that,faint-hearted, timid and fearful. He acted like a big shot, chasing little Toto around, but deep inside he didn’t have any courage. I find that that people who have the loudest roar usually are meek and insecure.

” The fearless are merely without fear. People who act in spite of their fear are truly brave.” Jamesing A. Lafond-Lewis

The cowardly lion went from begin a coward to courageous by stepping up and facing his fears. We are all faced with difficult situation at times. How we handle and confront those challenges are how we move from cowardly to courageous.

Every time we move forward with courage, we gain faith, strength, and confidence that we have the ability to overcome anything that comes our way. I know in my own life, when I was faced to go back into my comfort zone or take the leap of faith, and I faced my fear, I was always guided by spirit.

So the next time you have a choice to be cowardly or courageous, choose courageous,and just like the cowardly lion, you will feel empowered and confident.
