We are all scared by things in our lives. Some of us are worried about work or even finding a job. Some of us are worried about our relationships, children or families. Others are scared by health issues and those suffering from anxiety or depression might even be afraid of fear itself. The list goes on and on and on… I might even be a little bit worried about writing an article that nobody will be interested in!

We live in a world generally governed by fear, doubt and misgivings about the people, places and situations we come into contact with on a daily basis. It is a strange thing indeed. Why is it we worry so about life? When it holds us back so very much?

From the moment we wake up, our minds are often already racing with worries and doubts about the day ahead – most of which will never come to pass… Will I miss my train this morning? Will I be late for work? Will my boss be cross with me? Will I do OK in that presentation? Will I, will I…will I?

This then often leads to the bigger fears in life. Will I be able to afford to pay all the bills or mortgage this month? Do I need to go to the doctor about that health scare? How will I cope if I’m really ill? Are my family going to be OK? What if this relationship breaks down? What about the kids…I could go on and on. You know the score.

Although we obviously need to be practical and take action to help us move forward in our lives there is a difference between rationalising and catastrophising and we can’t allow our minds to govern our lives by fear. If we are honest, how often do we work ourselves up into a state by dwelling on worst case scenarios, rather than best case scenarios?

All negative emotions can ultimately be traced back to fear. Anger, resentment, bitterness, sadness, worry etc. all essentially have their roots firmly based in fear…so perhaps it is no surprise that the rate of people suffering from high levels of stress, anxiety and depression are on the rise in this world. It is a sad fact indeed that we spend so much of our waking life in a perpetual state of fear and trepidation.

But what if we were to let go of that fear? What if we were to say to ourselves I no longer want to live in this way. I chose to live my life differently.  What is the solution? What is the alternative to fear based living? The truth like so many things in this life is very simple. It’s LOVE.

I’m not talking romantic love here (although that is special in its own way). I’m talking about deep, inner self love. The type of love that resides deep within you; giving you that strength, courage, faith and peace of mind that you so need at this time to allow you to walk in the light.

Love is the antithesis of fear. It is everything that fear is not. It opens up your heart to see the truth and expands your imagination to see past the darkness. It allows you to see the good in the world not the bad and release all of those worries that have been holding you back. It allows you to see the silver lining on that cloud of doubt and live a much more peaceful life.

While we may not be able to prevent difficult circumstances from entering our lives, we can control the way we chose to perceive and respond to those challenges and by opening our heart, quietening our mind and allowing ourselves to let go of our fear and embrace that true inner wisdom that lies within each and every one of us we can dramatically change our lives.

To make tomorrow better, it is always better to change the vibration of your thinking today whenever you can. So why not let go of any residue fears or doubts NOW? Release them from your mind and let them float away on a cloud into a perfect blue sky and feel the warmth of the sun truly shining down on you today…

Your Challenge!

Don’t delay. When you get out of bed today why not start by making those small changes to the way you think? Rather than beginning the morning worrying about the day ahead. Why not trust and just let go. Allow yourself to believe that everything will be OK if only for this one day.

Alongside your breakfast, why not give yourself a positive pep talk and feed yourself some important positive messages?

Examples might include:

  • I am excited about the day ahead
  • I am confident that I will deal with any challenges as best as I can.
  • I will be on time and have a smile on my face
  • I know my boss thinks I’m doing a great job.
  • I have a good feeling about today.

See how much better your day goes after this positive kick start to the day…
