IT'S UP TO YOU

up to you You know when you're thinking a lot about something and suddenly it seems like everything relates to your situation? Like the world is offering up advice left and right? Ok, it might be in my head and I'm just looking for these hints from the universe... but still, it's fun/comforting nonetheless.

I've had a few mini freak out moments about the coming year and Alt Summit and organizing my schedule so I still have time to workout and go grocery shopping (so I don't eat the entire tin of popcorn that's in my living room in one sitting).  Sighhh...

Then, within one week, I heard through various sources the same words of wisdom: fear is a choice. It's up to me whether or not I let my thoughts run wild, whether I let the fear and worry and doubt take over. Easier said than effing done. Of course. But just knowing that we have the option is incredibly empowering. We can choose how we feel about something, how we react, and how we enter into a new, scary situation... and these choices - to feel worried and fearful or calm and discerning - are what shape our lives.

I started having new "what if" thoughts this week. What if I choose to NOT be nervous at Alt? What if I choose to be excited and ignore my self-doubt? What if I effing rock 2013? What if I just don't. worry. about. anything? What if I stop being a people-pleaser and just do me? Now those what ifs will lead to MUCH better, more productive things...

What are some of your fearful what ifs?? Let's change them!!

Oh and guess what?? After yesterday's post, I'd say a facebook group for the Be Happy linkup crew is a GO!! Oh I'm excited. It'll launch in the new year, you better believe I'll keep you posted...
