Lately I've been thinking a lot about fear. I know, this is a happiness linkup, but hear me out... in this super awesome book I've been reading, one of the assignments was to witness my fears. Simply make note of every time I feel anxiety, doubt, or any of fear's other compadres. No judging, just observing.
It was surprisingly powerful. Simply checking in with myself throughout the day helped me take a step back and start to recognize my patterns. Email is a big anxiety trigger... and going to the grocery store. Kidding/not kidding.
Throughout the week, I've become more and more aware of each time I have some cray negative thought. Once I become aware of my fearful thoughts, then it's time to do something, make a change. I basically have two choices, continue to believe those cray thoughts OR choose better thoughts. Happy, more empowering thoughts.
I serendipitously came across this video + challenge by the incredibly amazing and inspiring Katherine of Through My Looking Glass. Did you watch the video? I'll wait.... Such a coincidence, right?? There's something in the air, guys. It's time to let go of our fears and conquer some thangs! I'm accepting Katherine's challenge... let's do it together, k? What fear do you have that you'd like to overcome?
