Go where you fear

Have you ever found yourself saying "I hate this or I hate that?"
Look there
Have you met someone you have a strong reaction to?
look there
Are there things you say you will never do or try?
look there
Have you ever said "I do not like her."?
look there
Fear is a mirror to look in to
what is it that you really reflect?
what is it that you really feel?
What is it that you are vehement about that this is not for you?
Look there

Fear closes doors, erects walls
closes us up tight
from real growth

Look there

  2. mmm very thought-provoking. And very true--it's the hard work that enriches our lives and nourishes our souls.

  3. Oh, I said, "I don't like her." I was referring to a new lady in my pilates class. I was talking to my daughter on the phone last night. She let me "rant on" for a while and then said, "Mom what was that one word resolution you choose for yourself?" ACCCEPTANCE. Gulp. She laughed and reminded it was early in the year and I still have lots of time to work on it. So today is another day of challenges.

  12. Hi Suz :)

    I have been very busy with work and therefore going to bed very early, which unfortunately totally cuts into my blog-surfing time! Hopefully it will quiet down soon!

    I am just thankful to have the afternoon OFF today to be lazy and relax and catch up! I missed your sweet words of inspiration! You never fail to make me stop and think a little deeper about something.
