Now a word from our sponsor about fear.
Forgetting Everything’s All Right.
Facing Everything And Recovering.
F—K Everything And Run.
I love finding new acronyms. Let’s see. Fully Embracing All Reality. (That was off the top of my head until I got to the Letter R and was stumped. Then I looked in my dog-eared yellow Roget’s Thesaurus—I received it for my bat mitzvah in 1970!—and opened to R and found Reality.) SO here’s a new one: Fully Embracing All Reality (which means remembering that our feelings are not facts!).
We can’t always not feel fear. It’s part of the package. We just have to shrink our fear down to a sizable package that we can carry. “Just do it” sounds easy but how can we just do it when we are carrying fear so great it makes our knees buckle?
There’s nothing that we are called upon to do that we can’t find the inner strength to do it. There are times when we simply must go forth, believing that there is the strength of the universe that we can plug into, and do what needs to be done. It’s like the cosmos is holding our hand and guiding us through a difficult journey.
Fear can be paralyzing. We do have the power to shrink it to manageable size.
Tool For Tuesday: Just for today, I won’t give into my fear. I will not let it stop me from moving forward. I will not forget that everything’s all right.
