TODAY I LEARNED: Roosters have built in earplugs.
What an intense year. I’m just now coming back from loss, sleep deprivation, and torturous thoughts. We’ve all been trying our best though, myself included. It’s not been easy, but it seems to have been worth it. I’m not entirely sure about the future, but as I keep saying, I feel that this year is going to change a lot of doubts into hope and make some dreams come true. And this time, we can’t let fear stand in the way of what we want. I’m certainly not going to.
This is the year to really get shit done and make something happen. Life may not work out the way you want it to when you’re young, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make the most of it. Everyone should be very proud of their progress, no matter what spot of life you’re in. The achievements matter and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. I’ve had to do some reevaluating lately regarding my thinking and I feel that I’ve come to a good place…or a better place at least.
Fear plays a big role in all our lives. Recently I’ve felt fear popping up in parts of my life that I’ve never noticed before. Truly, the fear has been there for quite some time, but I have been too afraid to open my eyes to it if that makes sense. Sometimes our deepest fears are shrouded by other fears. They keep piling onto each other like sheets. Each sheet makes it that much harder to pull off. Fortunately, after some much needed meditation and deep thinking, I figured out what was causing all my fears. Ultimately my problem is the fear of failure and it’s very common. Not doing something simply because you’re afraid you will fail or you won’t be good at it. I’ve been in and out of that boat for a good part of my life. It’s not something you can just conquer over night, but it’s possible to overcome in time. I’m living proof that doing something you’re afraid of without fear of the worst outcome is possible. Because believe me…I used to be terribly afraid to write anything or reveal my feelings.
Basically all I’m saying today is reveal your own fears. Behind them you will find the keys to your success. Because fear stops us from doing so many things. Fear is powerful, but hope is stronger than fear. ❤
Blessed Be )O(
