To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom. ~Bertrand Russell
Wednesday again already?!
That means it's time for Wishcasting with Jamie Ridler
Today---what do I wish to let go of?
Truly, there's so much that needs to be let go of, but the biggest thing, the thing that holds me back the most--FEAR.
I am just realizing here at mid-life how crippling, how paralyzing fear can be.
Looking back, I'm amazed that I've accomplished the things that I have, considering how fearful I have been over a lifetime.
He who fears something gives it power over him. ~Moorish Proverb
Those who fear life are already three parts dead. ~Bertrand Russell
Now that I recognize fear for what it is (it is NOT my friend!), and remember who I am and the power that I have, I have realized that I can overcome it and move forward.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7
It has been a slow, sometimes agonizing process, but I have made tremendous progress.
And now I am SO ready to let it go completely!
Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death. ~Author Unknown
Here's to letting go of fear and getting on with our lives!
What say you?
What do YOU wish to let go of?
