Love vs. Fear

Which One Will Win

Love This Quote!

Don’t move the way fear makes you move.

Move the way love makes you move.

Move the way joy makes you move.” ~Osho

This quote spoke to me LOUDLY and on so many levels of my being too! The physical and the mental as well as the emotional and the spiritual. The mind, the heart and the body. It is like the ultimate personal grudge match with myself!

I am learning that I need to lean in more when it comes to my fears! I have pretty much always been afraid of the unknown, especially when I cannot see any light. I need to at least stick a toe in or look over the edge! I know more than likely I will survive and come out the other side because that is what pretty much happens every time. I certainly know I learn and experience growth from these experiences!

My whole being CRAVES movement in many ways each and every day! I move through life better when I feel the love and the kindness as well as the happiness and the joy. I need to live from within myself and come from a place of self love and pure joy. I am not living if I am afraid and in fear, especially of my own shadow!

Just Think About What YOU CAN DO!!!

Accomplish something you “think” you cannot do

because it is a great motivator

for doing other things you think you cannot do. ~Unkown

Nothing like hitting fear head on by doing something you thought you could not do! You feel pretty amazing afterwards too. You find that drive and motivation again. Challenging Yourself Can Be a Good Thing!

Discovering Your Passions

While Releasing Your Fears

Sometimes I let my fears and my emotions control my life! I get in my own way because of the doubts and fears that I am feeling and experiencing. In being more open to the blessings in my life I am growing , taking action and experiencing my life to the fullest. I need to tap into my strengths and passions to really appreciate what I love to do and live the life I want!

My Top 3 Fears

  • The Unknown
  • Failure or Rejection
  • BIG Change

I know that if I tap into my strengths and passions I not only move myself forward, but motivate others to do the same! You can slowly tackle your fears one by one too.  Your doubts and fears are emotions, feelings and thoughts that like to trip you up, control you and at times sabatoge you! You do not have to surrender to your fears. You can face your doubts and fears and develop the skills to cope and be resilient. Your doubts and fears do not define you and who you are!

Crossing That Bridge!

I need to worry and stress less! I need to let go of the control and let off of the pressure I put on myself. I am fearful of hurt and rejection and not being enough. I have to put a stop to that way of thinking and overcome it by thinking in a more positive way!

I truly enjoy the lifestyle I have created for myself! I am learning to follow my heart and listen to my inner voice again. I am taking care of my whole being instead of focusing on one area at a time. I want to be my best self in so many ways that adds to the happiness and fulfillment in my life!

Good Luck On Discovering the Passionate Being That You Already ARE!!!

Mind Over Matter

Facing the Unknown Head On

Facing the unknown can be a daunting task. You can try to run from it or face it head on. I could throw myself a pity party where I play the guilt game. I could make myself the victim.

I try to not let my emotions reign and the anxiety to set in when facing the unknown. It brings too much tension and stress as well as unhappiness and restlessness into my life. No Thank You! You have to be the one that meets your needs instead of waiting for someone else to meet those needs for you.

“Little by little, through patience and repeated effort, the mind will become stilled in the Self” ~ Baghvad Gita

Have a little patience when it comes to calming your mind and understanding your emotions and feelings. You have to let it progess and unfold as it happens and not when you want it to happen. Just let go and move along with the flow. Remember to nurture and nourish yourself and your needs.

You have to find the strength within yourself and listen to your inner voice when it comes to dealing with your emotions and feelings. You can become an embracer of change. You can learn to accept yourself for who you are and get on with living your life. You have the tools within yourself to create your life, the life you want to have NOW!

The 3 Keys to a Great Life are:

  1. Feeling GOOD about yourself
  2. Taking CARE of yourself
  3. Loving yourself MORE

No one is perfect (maybe in our own minds at times) and every one is living in an imperfect world too! The beauty of imperfection is that you get to experience growth and gain life experiences. Love that!
