Courage- the First Step of Conquering Fear :-)
Wednesday, December 26, 2012
One of the challenges of Life is to face something we don't want to face- like a scary illness, admitting a plan isn't working and start over , or typing a first blog and hope that people will understand and appreciate what you wrote. I had face two challenging times in my life, which i will explain later on that took Courage to deal with.
This feeling is called FEAR -- to overcome fear takes COURAGE because you may deal with rejection ( wincing hearing a boss complain that you didn't follow instructions right) disappointment ( aiming too high for your goals - results can hurt knowing ypu have to start over again). Fear is a constant battle we face everyday.
In my case, I fight the Fear Spell ( playing too safe or should I say being too comforable because I don't want deal with problems ) I adjust my plans and goals depending what's going on. I don't mind being semi busy with activities I like to do and improve myself. Another way to get ideas when I'm stuck is to read books or suggestions from friends to seek out other actives I may have missed!
The reason Courage is important because life can be difficult sometimes because of my disabity. I admire people who overcome various challenges in their lives whether they have a disabity or not!
I had to face not only having a disabity, I had to face a difficult Courage lesson many years ago - losing my oldest sister. I had to face the fact there is a mean world that I had no control over. No support from her in the Earth Relam, I had to find my own way- the longest journey I'm still learning the lesson ( I'm more healed now and KNOW that my sister is with me in Sprit helping me out in a different way now- Supporting me and helping me as I write this blog)
Another point of Courage was going to college on my own some years ago. I was very emotional leaving home but I knew I had to change to improve myself. That was the hardest step I did - I'm Very GLAD I did - I learned a lot on myself and and other things people classes at college. One happy time is I met one of my college friend and a sparkfriend and is someone that I support in my life!
Courage helps me to overcome my fear I deal with everyday-- sometimes little bit at a time . I have come a long way to start a " new chapter" in my life being courageous and have some fun in my life. Everyone can overcome Courage at some point you just have know when you ready for a change! If I can handle challenges so can you-/ one step at time!
