Don’t Worry, Be Happy – Part III
Live Today. That was the theme of Tuesday’s blog.
Worry is a part of life. It just is. But there are ways to overcome an over-abundance of worry. We all know too much worrying isn’t healthy.
“Fear is a choice,” says Life Coach, Kim Giles* “You can choose to experience each situation with fear or you can choose to ride through it with hope, trust and optimism. Fear is a choice, and so is peace. Choose to trust that you are not here to fail. Choose to trust that life is a classroom and every experience a lesson to teach you something.”
Several years ago, I was preparing to write for my 7th CD – If I Only Had Today . While writing the previous six CDs – I would often question my ability, I doubted whether or not I was a good songwriter, I would sit in my living room and cry, my husband would have to tell me to buck up little songwriter, you can do it. I repeated this pattern over and over.
As I approached writing for this CD, I made the decision to leave that destructive and unproductive pattern behind. I wasn’t going to worry or fret or cry or complain. I was going to trust and have faith and pray and have hope. Whenever a negative thought came into my head, I chased it away with a positive one.
I had a totally different writing experience. I didn’t spend one night sitting in the living room crying. I didn’t doubt myself. My writing improved. I felt like it was my best work so far. It seemed easy.
Nothing changed – except my attitude, the way I thought. I simply made a choice.
We all face fears. What really matters is how we choose to face them. What are you confronting today that you could face with hope, trust and courage?
Think about it and then make the decision. Choose hope. Choose to believe that you will succeed…
because you will.
“There is much in the world to make us afraid.
There is much more in our faith to make us unafraid.”
~Frederick W. Cropp
