“Trust your hopes, not your fears.” – David Mahoney

“Trust your hopes, not your fears.” – David Mahoney

Someone once said that fear is False Evidence Appearing Real. The reassurance when we are seeing a frightening movie is knowing that it is just a movie. Have you ever thought you heard a noise in the middle of the night and before you knew it, you were hearing so many noises that you vowed to move the next day. What we focus on tends to magnify and grow in our lives. We want to be sure when our minds are playing tricks on us that we can distinguish between the real and the imaginary. Dr. Susan Jeffers says, “Feel the fear and do it anyway.” I have found in my own life as well as studying other people that we either go willingly to the next phase in our lives or we go painfully. In other words, If I do not move forward and I stay stuck, the pain will become greater than the fear. Our esteem grows simply because we learn to live right now not in the past. In the now moment, there is no reason to be afraid.

Remember, if you have had a bad relationship it has prepared you to have a good one.
If you have made a mistake, it has prepared you great knowledge.
If you have failed, it has prepared you to accept your next success.

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?” The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to…
