Much of the "self-work" that I do is around letting go of fear & negativity, and choosing love. I don't think that there is ANY aspect of my life that hasn't been marred by fear in the past few years (and many...for my entire life). A simple example from today...
I've been losing weight at a fairly steady pace. I'm down 20lbs from the beginning of the year. Some of my jeans are pretty much falling off of me. I tried on a few smaller sizes at Old Navy today, and got in line to pay for one pair. It was a minor purchase of $15 (on sale) jeans. While I was standing in the queue, fear was SHOUTING at me. What if I stopped losing weight? What if I gained it back? Why was I buying something for myself during the holiday season? What if I'm feeling too much pride in my efforts? The steady drone of fear caused me to bolt out of the line, put the jeans on a folding cart, and race out of the store. No purchase. Sigh.
I have frequent conversations with my besties about my tendency to lean toward dark & twisty. I can write a tragic ending like no one's business. That's not a writing skill, it's a fear-based practice.
So, in 2015...I'm letting that go. I will remind myself that fear is false evidence appearing real. Fear is my ego-voice trying to sabotage my higher self. Fear is soooo 2014.
