So it’s 3:00 am, and my brain just won’t be quiet. Maybe it’s all the steroids, or maybe my head is just filled with too many thoughts. This experience is really forcing me to think more. Tonight, I find myself thinking about fear. When we don’t have the answer to something, fear seems to paralyze all of us. It stops us from moving forward. It keeps us from taking risks that can make a positive change in our lives.
Don’t get me wrong, it is natural to have fears. You literally never know what tomorrow will bring you. It could bring you Cancer, or you could receive a pot of gold. I have no clue what will happen to me with this Cancer. I could, God forbid, get a blood clot and die tomorrow. Or I could conquer this thing, inspire millions, and become an advocate for better change in this world. Who knows??? I am very curious and interested in all of the unknowns, and in what my future holds.
I feel we have more control of our fears by simply re-directing our frame of mind. So I am going to do my best to not let fear get in the way. It just pulls me down and isn’t productive. I think if I continue taking the time to have a strong mental perspective, I will keep growing as a human, and will be far more productive.
Here is my Challenge Number Two of this blog. I challenge you to take 30 minutes and just lay in a really comfortable, peaceful place. Concentrate on what you fear the most. Think about how you can push through that fear and redirect it into a positive. Or eliminate it completely. Find your own technique. But knock it out. If you trust in the way the world works, then there is nothing to fear.
The reality is that none of us on this planet will survive death. We have to learn how to survive life. The unknown is the beauty of life. It’s the adventure. What we don’t know should be celebrated, not feared.
I spent so many years of my life fearing getting older. Ironically, now that’s all that I want to do. I want to get older. Lets embrace it. Lets rejoice in getting older, and in the unknown.
