Fear Is Natural

Fear is a part of life. It's an emotion we all have and that we can't just get rid of. Most people think of fear as a bad thing, and lets face it it's not exactly something we look forward too. But it's also not as bad as you think. Fear is just part of the process of getting out of your comfort zone, which is almost absolutely a good thing. When we are pursuing things we want, like career's and dreams, we experience fear. It's natural. It has to happen because you are trying something new, and you are human. We have developed a mindset that fear is bad and cowardly, and we must hide it or shut it out. But no matter what you think you do to fear it will come back. So, what if we re-thought fear. And rather than letting it control us, which often happens, what if we took control of it and used to help us.
Let me explain myself.
Say you walk into somewhere new and your about to go do something you've never done before. Whatever the thing is you may be doing, you'll feel fear. Why? Becuase you're stepping out of the only place you think to be safe, the only place you know, you're comfort zone. Even if it's the greatest thing ever, you'll still feel fear, even if it's just in the back of your mind whispering little things that might go wrong.
But let me tell you something, Fear is not a road block, we've only trained ourselves to think it is. Analyze the situation and once proved not to be harmful, fear should be the very thing that propels us into things. I feel afraid, okay that means "all systems go!". This concept will, I guaranty, take a long time to instill in us because we'll all been taught that if you're afraid, you should stop. That fear isn't good. That is shouldn't be there. But that's like saying that you should never feel happiness. It's ridiculous. Fear is nothing more than another emotion. So when you walk into a new experience. Use the fear that you feel to propel you. When you feel like turning back use the energy of your emotions to make yourself move even further forward. Don't be afraid of fear, let it be your motivation and go chase your dreams.

Smile, it will be okay.

  4. I understand where you are coming from... but fear is neither natural or something that we can't get rid of.
    God, He is everything that involves love, and by no means is fear love.
    Fear is evil, to put it rather bluntly. Fear is something that the devil uses against us, but, it is something through God that we can escape.

In this Moment

Hey you, right now I want you to think about something in your life that makes you happy. It could be anything. A hobby, a job, a food, a person. What is it? Once you know, dwell on it for a second. Now think about the last time you got to do it. Were you happy then?

Life is so short. It goes by quicker than we can imagine. The next time you're doing the thing you thought about, the one that makes you happy, put a smile on your face. Even if you've had the worst week of your life. You're getting to do something that makes you happy. Don't waste this moment. So many people would love to be doing the things you get to do, yet they can't. So even if you have to paste a fake smile on your face, don't forget just how lucky you are to be living the life you are living. To be reading, drawing, dancing, writing, or creating, or singing, or even walking, or breathing. Don't take those things for granted, even though it's so easy too. Things happen, your circumst…

Life's too short

In the words of my drivers' training instructor, "Life's too short, you know? Live a little. Life's too short."
And she's right, life is too short.
Don't waste it.
Don't be petty, don't have regrets, be nice to people, do good things, have fun, BE SPONTANEOUS! It's summer now! Live a little! Some of the most enjoyable things I have ever done were completely spontaneous and crazy!

Don't Take Life Too Seriously.

That should be on a t-shirt or a coffee mug or something.
My point is, Live Your Life. I cannot tell you how much it pains me to see people living without a cause, or without adventure, or they are letting go of their potential to be someone wonderful, and do wonderful things. Maybe simply because they were told by someone that "they can't" or "they aren't good enough to". But that's completely not true. YOU HAVE POTENTIAL. YOU ARE WONDERFUL. And you were made by God to do incredible things! You just ha…

Everything You Need To Be Happy Is Inside You

Let's face it, at the end of the day, all you have is yourself. Yes, family is important, relationships are important, but at the end of the day, it's all you baby. Are you going to be happy? Or are you going to let people around you decide that for you? You are the person with the most power in your life. It's your choice to be happy. The things around you, the people around you don't get to decide who you are and what makes you happy or what makes your life good. You decide how you react to your circumstances. It's up to you. Your emotions don't have to be controlled by the things that happen to you. It's only when you react to the circumstances that they have power over your emotions. If you rely on your inner-self to be happy and not your circumstances, they won't have power over you. Stop thinking there's something wrong with you or that you are missing something. There's nothing wrong with you, and you are not missing anything. You already…
