“Everything we love is uncertain: when we are seeking it, we fear we may not get it. When we have obtained it, we fear even more that it may be lost. Every threat to our security turns our work into agitation. Even a word, even the imagined thought we place in the mind of another, suspecting him of suspecting us–these are enough to turn our day into a millrace of confusion and anxiety and haste and who knows what other worse things besides!” No Man is an Island (Merton)

Living in fear…

Standard

Why do some people continually chose to live their lives in fear?

That really isn’t living as much as it is settling.  Sitting complacent never gets you very far and in fact the very thought of complacency disgusts me!  Why wallow?  Why say I will put up with this when it is only holding you back?  Make the decision and choose not to live in fear today!  Ask yourself, what in my life am I SO afraid of?  I mean really, our fear is bigger in our head than it is in all actuality, right?  So let’s beat this mental game, choose to over come our fears and start LIVING our life the way we were intended to do!
