Happy Monday BEautiful BEing!
Ok, so its December 22nd!!! Can you believe that? We are about a week away from the new year! I feel there's a psychological rush when we hear the word "new"!
New day, new week, new year, new shoes, new clothes, new job, new home, new new new.In the light of all things new, its really important and powerful to be present to all that exists and make room for some newness.
I have been in a super reflective mode lately, and even though sometimes it makes me overthink, for the most part it just revs me up thinking of the possibilities. My grandfather always tells me, life is about probability, therefore everything and anything you desire or envision, has any probability of happening and that excites me. I mostly focus on the likelihood of something wonderful occurring and its only when fear creeps in, that doubt exists.
I don't believe in waiting until next year to begin changing things. We have new opportunities every moment of everyday, so one of the main things I've been working on releasing is fear. One of my absolutely favorite quotes is, " Fear defeats more people than anything else in this world," by Ralph Waldo Emerson and don't you know, that is the truth.
Fear takes away life! Literally. Fearing the different, the unknown, or the challenging literally keeps us from going after dreams, traveling, building or rekindling relationships, apologizing, revealing truth about ourselves, of trying new experiences. Fear. It robs us of possible life changing memories and you know what ladies, I'm tired of it. In my reflections, I acknowledge the times I have been courageous, but I cannot ignore the times I let fear get in the way of living.
What has fear stopped you from doing? It could be the smallest thing, like not asking someone a question for fear of rejection or judgment. We have to just do it. We can all support each other in this. So I'm saying, Live! BE You with confidence! BE Fearless with strength! BE Life with boldness! Live. Don't be afraid to your best, to try and succeed or even to try and fail. Go ahead and wear that look you've been wanting to wear. Go ahead and travel solo. Go after that job, relocate! Enter that race or competition. Try out that new hobby or interest, and share it with the ones you love. Leave behind that relationship. Bid farewell to that old friend. Live! Whatever that is for you, do it. Do it better than yesterday. Do it better than this last year!
Go ahead woman! Live!!!
