Fearless In 2014: Stop. Breathe. These are Beautiful Times

142When we’re in a state of flux, we tend to sometimes forget what’s really important. We also forget the positive aspects of whatever we are going through. The other day I took my journal to church and sat in complete silence as the peace washed over me and I was able to think more clearly. I always say that if I were to write a book, I’d write all of it sitting in church. The stuff I produce when I’m sitting in there is incredible. It really makes me believe that I am not the writer – He is.

For the past four months, things have been so utterly confusing. Emotions I never thought I’d have crept its way out somehow and I’m left wondering what it all means. I wrote down a list of every positive aspect of what I’m going through, and it really helped. Getting organized isn’t just for work environments but for personal growth as well. I suggest getting out a pen and paper and writing down everything that runs through your mind. Look at both sides, positive and negative. I found that the positives outweighed the negative – and most of all: nothing’s really changed at all. So why was I freaking out? Because my mind is a anxious being.

For someone who has been led by fear her entire life, I am learning that the old saying is true: “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Sometimes I mistake it for my intuition, but that’s not always the case. The mind is a tricky thing. Fear is the devil. It’s like a spell is cast and you are paralyzed of doing anything mildly productive. Kill it. Stop to take a moment out of your regularly scheduled fearing and breathe. These are beautiful times and you’re listening to the wrong message.

“I fought all through the night, but I made it alive
The sun’s starting to rise
These are beautiful times
