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! emoticon

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! emoticon

    Great blog. Overcoming fear is something we all have to do at various points in our lives. I think some people are afraid of losing weight. They wonder how it will change them and their relationships. We need the courage to take care of ourselves and make the changes we need to make to be healthy.
