Hello friends! Today’s ‘Ask’…
How do I turn fear into courage?
Living in fear has the ability to completely cripple my sanity and sense of self. I need to turn it over and each moment that I turn it over, I am allowing for courage to be present. I am allowing myself to connect with my higher power. I am allowing the person I was put here to be to shine through. I have to turn that fear into courage on a daily basis. Sometimes on a moment to moment basis. I know where my addictions want me. That is living a life based on fear. That is not living for me though. That is barely surviving.
When I notice fear pop up in my life, it is an opportunity for me to reflect on what is really going on. Am I living in the future? Am I unsettled or frustrated about something? I have to surrender this fear and acknowledge the purpose it is serving. It is not until I do that that I can turn it over, surrender, and allow for the courage and strength to flow through me. Through practice and patience I make this my reality so I can live the life I want to live for myself. Not the life my addictions want me to live. So I practice turning fear into courage one day at a time.
