There have been many situations popping up in my life recently that I have been afraid to face. Fear for me often comes in moments of uncertainty. In my internship it has been an uncertainty of my own abilities. In relationships it has been an uncertainty of opening up to others with the possibilty of getting hurt. Today I realized that
these are truely the greatest opportunities for growrth and change in my life. I have felt stuck for the past 2 years. I need to move forward and face my fears. I cant live in fear of making mistakes or getting hurt because those will happen whether I try to avoid them or not. My mind is my own worst enemy, but I wont give in.
The sun is shining brightly yet with wind chill it is -22° outside. It reminds me of how life is filled with paradoxes. There always exists opposites, both negative and positive truths. My goal is to accept the reality of both but focus on the positive. Today I choose to appreciate the sun because it does me no good to dwell on the negative facts I have no control over. Perspective changes everything.
