This blog contains food for your soul.
It is meant to be nibbled and tasted in no particular order.
It is a chance for my soul to speak, a mood captured in time, something that is visible.
To invite my fears in, then tell them to sit down and shut up!
I am in the midst of learning to face my fears. It seems that fears are based on these things: illusion and future thinking, with a side-order of "what if." Yes, fears must be respected and learned about, but they must not paralyze us or lure us into a half-life of being afraid all the time. Once you face a fear, it looses all of its stuffing and will sit quietly in the back seat and do as it's told. I feel that fears drive us away from our true selves. I used to live in denial of my fears and tried to cover them up with a "happy face." I now see that my greatest growth is happening with an acceptance of my fears, of giving them a voice and learning new ways to deal with them. Thank heavens for therapy, self healing and God helping me to unravel my fears because its a process that I'm afraid to do alone!
I like to take the impossible and make them possible. I believe that we need to go where we want to be and the resources will follow us.
Impossible means I'm possible!
I love to journal and blog because it helps me to discover and uncover myself, to encourage my bravery, sort out my difficulties, to invent new ways of being and seeing. I believe that we can use our pain to transform and give new form to the deepest, most damaged parts of ourselves.
All of my friends inspire me and I believe that inspiration can illuminate tiny parts of ourselves and help them to grow.
