Public Paranoia? The SECRET to overcoming fear..

The driving force behind most Americans today is fear. Mass media images instill fear of being too big, thin, ugly, beautiful, poor, rich, old, young, smart, dumb, unloved, unwanted…  Fear of death, tragedy and failure.        

Buy this drink-lose weight now!

Use this alarm system-or someone will break into your home!

Drive this car-or you may crash!

Eat this food-you will live longer!

Invest in this-you’ll never go broke!

Fear drives us to believe we need one more zero behind our salary to bring happiness, a bigger house, and a fancier car, nicer clothes, send our children to prestigious schools. We do everything to “measure up” however, we are never satisfied. Want to know why? Possessions do not bring fulfillment.  Happiness (fulfillment) comes from within and it only comes when you realize that the reason of your existence is to further your creators agenda. Not your own.

Material things are nice to have, but when your sole focus is on acquiring instead of giving (time, love, friendships etc ..) to others you will never feel complete.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others” Marianne Williamson http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Return_to_Love  this is one of my favorite quotes on fear, we are who we are because it’s written into a well-designed plan. Before being formed in our mother’s womb God called us for a purpose. Will you live up to it?

Conquering Fear

Analyze: What is causing the fear(s) get to the root of the situation.

Confront: Is the fear logical? What is the likelihood of the thing you fear to take place?

Replace: Think positive! As complex as your human brain is; it can only handle ONE thought at a time.

 

For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

 

Thanksgiving Day Quickie..

“I’ve started to look at life differently. When you’re thanking God for every little you – every meal, every time you wake up, every time you take a sip of water – you can’t help but be more thankful for life itself, for the unlikely and miraculous fact that you exist at all.”
― A.J. Jacobs

I came across this quote this morning, it’s a humbling reminder of how insignificant we really are in the scheme of life while being apart of the grandest scheme of all at the same time… God’s Kingdom..

Be Blessed and stay Thankful this holiday season :}

Hi, My Name Is Ugly… What’s Yours?

When we start to revel in the truth about ourselves, it gets ugly, it’s uncomfortable to say the least and it requires a courageous effort to look at the real identity that makes you. That’s scary. As we embark on lifelong journeys to find ourselves and the uniqueness of our purpose, I urge you to do the same. I challenge you to get down to the ugly part of you, examine your weaknesses to develop your strengths. 

I am a social activist, freelance writer, and dreamer above all things. I will use these talents to further define ME. At this moment I am unafraid. At this moment my life is on the ropes, I can choose to cower down for the count down or I can stand back up and fight.

I choose the latter, I choose to fight.
