In our world today so often we are living lives centered around FEAR. At one point in our civilization this served us very well with the whole flight or fight response. However most of us are not living in near death moments. There are those that face this everyday and this post is not about them, this is for the rest of us truly living in peace yet creating panic and anxiety with just our thoughts.
You see living in FEAR is one of the most powerful ways to kill your power and slaughter your passion. The word FEAR literally causes Families to become Exhausted And Running. What are we running from? We are literally running from the JOY in our lives. We become so tired that the only pain that we see in the world is what is happening to us in that immediate moment. We become victims to out own created circumstances. We spend time waisting moments wondering how dumb we were to chose the path we are on.
If we take a moment to stop! Stop running from some invisible monster chasing us with moments that are unfair and undeserved, we can actually catch that monster. FEAR is something that we can't control. Remember being a child and afraid of the dark? How did we learn to not see shadows as monsters? We stopped be scared and started looking at them for what they were. And all of a sudden that shadow that scared you was nothing more than the teddy bear that comforted you.
So when FEAR has your family so tired and running, your parenting is horrible, your marriage is a mess and you can't stand that job any more. Stop and face the FEAR! The key to combating FEAR is the same as a child and you can remember it by Finding Energy Around Relationships. You can now look at the people in your lives that looked like monsters and yes sometimes our children can be like monsters, but now you can look at them and instead of feeling like you are failing as a parent, take time to build a relationship with them. Break the work life balance myth and just live in the Joy of the people around you that love you unconditionally!
I am glad to get that off my chest... Story of failures and success and failures and success and failures and success... I think that you get it! Don't ever give up on creating the passion and potential that lives inside of you a tangible reality to rock your world.
