Have you considered turning your fear to faith? For me, it took years to study and learn about what the Old Testament says and the New Testament says. Through that inquiry of study, always asking questions of who I am, I learned some miraculous truths. Over time I have come to know truth for myself and when someone says the truth will set you free: It is what I now know to be true. I do feel freedom within. I still come to a place where I notice my mind wants to go to a negative mode of thoughts and every day I have to get very clear that those thoughts do not serve me. And sometime what feels negative needs to be evaluated. I pay attention. I get really clear about what is causing me stress. Because that is where decisions are made. Choice becomes what you create your reality to be. So, take some time to wrestle with your thoughts and get really clear about what is important. This my friend is your core values shining through. This is where you stand for YES or stand for NO. And a leap of faith (for me it is my belief in Holy Spirit. I bank everything I do on eternal life so my choices are in alignment with God’s way. Something to learn through study) is what I take to stand firm. That means knowing that whatever decision I make that in my heart is what I truly believe is in my heart to do, I make that move, have that conversation, start a new way, ask for help, start inquiry, and a new seed begins to germinate and soon is blossoming. So, be patient. Take a deep breath and find a coach or some inspiration through a workbook or podcast. But do something that keeps you focused on what you CAN do. Not what you CAN’T do. Be well means that you are in control of YOU! Pay attention to what you are about then be centered in that and move about with exuding all of you wherever you go. No comparing other than to embrace other’s uniqueness. Notice what you see remaining centered in who YOU are. It helps you remain calm. This noticing is discernment rather than judgement. May your anxiety become A Noticing of eXtraordinary Insecurity Expressing Thoughts of Yourself. Get really clear about how your thoughts may not be your truth at all. I tell myself I am not good enough all the time. And then I check in with that and remind myself that, “Oh yes I am!” Without being prideful, simply mindful. Blessings to you today!
