Make Friends With Fear

As my journey continues to take me further off into the unknown, I have grappled with fear. We all deal with fear.

Without conscious practice and acknowledgement, fear can derail us from following our heart.

Open Heart Series #030816-800

Follow what lights
Your on heart fire
And sets your soul free.
Take a giant leap
And choose love.
You may not know
Where you will land,
But following your passions
Far outweighs living
On the sidelines in fear.
Would you rather feel
Painstakingly alive,
Following your passions
Into the unknown abyss?
Would you rather feel
Your heart burning in
Your chest or
Wonder what
Could have been
Had you courageously
Said yes to love?
Would rather not know
Where your leap lands
Or have your feet
Firmly planted right
Where you are in
An unexplored life?
When at the crossroad
Of fear and love,
choose love,
Every damn time.

Stick With Love

As we honor the great Dr. King, remember your path will always accelerate by choosing love. Carrying around baggage of hate, resentment or anger is far too heavy a burden for your heart to manage. Lighten the load by forgiving yourself first, then others.

Release your emotions via whichever healthy method you prefer: prayer, meditation, exercise, rest, journaling or any number of activities that lessen the load you carry.

The potential of a lighter heart is limitless. And remember to open up to receive love as well. It is often a remedy simply to connect with others in laughter or even tears if you feel like releasing that way.

By giving our heavy emotions attention either in our own heart or with trusted companions, this focus alone is the first step to healing.
