Never Let Your Fear Decide Your Fate

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Avoiding what I am fearful of doesn't make it go away - it temporarily delays me from having to get in touch with it so I can take action on it.

The awesome Jedi Master Yoda said, "Named must your fear be before banish it you can."

His speech to Anakin Skywalker upon their first meeting resonates within me still, "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."

Personally, I am a "Come to the Dark Side, we have cookies" kinda girl, however I will not give over my life because I am fearful.

I will try, and, if I don't succeed, I will keep trying until I achieve my goal.

    I can so relate to your post! It is hard to give up a lifelong habit of avoiding things out of fear. But every time I have confronted my fears and took the plunge and done it anyway, I have become a better, stronger person for it. This weight loss-regain health journey is also one where you have to confront your fears and learn to deal with life without the oh so familiar comforting of favorite binge foods. And yet, as we walk each mile, we become stronger and more courageous.
Thank you for this post! emoticon

    Our fate has always been and will alway be our own decision....God made it so. So choose carefully for one will give you life and the other will take your life. God Bless YOU! Vic.
