What is F.E.A.R. anyway?

Feb 19, 2015

The word fear, conjures up many things inside of me, the unknown, possibilities, anxiousness, courage, new beginnings, and letting go. [Giving you a little glimpse into my thoughts lately.]

Tomorrow, I move my outside office, tmdesigns (my graphic design business for more than 18 years) into my home. Partly because of need, but I believe mostly because of desire. Desire of new beginnings, and letting go… is this scary? Hell yeah… but I am doing it anyway.

I read a great definition of F.E.A.R. on the web the other day, and I really resonated with it. As I have come to learn, everything is a choice (or we could say, a perspective) — F.E.A.R. can be Forget Everything and Run or it can be Face Everything and Rise. Which is what I am choosing to do, I am choosing to rise to the occasion. I have been given this opportunity to simplify and move my desk inside my home. This will allow me to have more freedom of when and what I choose to create. [I may get an early morning or late night inspiration, and now I can act on it.]

When I ponder that word fear, I realize it mostly resides in the future or the past, not necessarily in the present moment. Another acronym for fear that I remember from my youth is False Evidence Appearing to be Real. Reminding me again, it’s all choice, it’s all perspective.

It seems many people I know are going through changes at this time, whether it be in relationships, jobs, health issues, parenting, finances, or literally moving so they may begin again. If this resonates with you, please remind yourself you have a choice, to run or to rise. I encourage you to rise, rise into the nowness of who are you, rise and connect with your breath, your intuition and your BEingness. Know that you are enough, whatever your circumstance may be, feel the rise come from within — and when you do, you will have a direct experience in which you can learn from and share. […and probably laugh about later]

One last thought I would love to leave you with is this quote from Danielle LaPorte, “Everything is progress.”

So, feel the fear and do it anyway!
