Understanding your fear:

For so long I ran away from fear.  That minute I felt like I had lost control of a situation I ran.  And I would do everything in my power to convince myself and everyone around me that I made the best choice by leaving. 

When you start to look within yourself and try to understand your feelings, you can come out ahead of them.  Instead of running from my fears, I choose to recognize the feeling I am feeling, and try to understand why.

 Usually with fear, it means you are heading in a direction that makes you feel uncomfortable, uneasy, it’s not within your comfort zone.  So naturally it makes sense, to run from the unknown.  But what if we welcomed it with open arms, as a growth period.  There is a gift that is being given to you within these feelings.  Growth, expansion, a chance to get out ahead from the spot you have been stuck.  To be able to create the life you have dreamed of, that you yearn for.  Take it as a gift, not a weakness.  It is your body’s natural reaction to growing pains.

When we don’t live life with uncomfortable situations, we are blocking our growth.  We are situated in a zone of easiness, AKA our comfort zone. We all know, nothing grows here.  If you start to recognize your fears and say, “ Oh! It is time to learn from this. What am I not noticing in my life that I need to pay attention to? Where do I need to make adjustments?”  I promise you things will change. Be ready for a major shift in your life. Run towards your fears because everything you desire is on the other side. Your goals, dreams, self fulfillment, love, enlightenment, service for others. Take a step forward and start getting comfortable with being uncomfortable.
