You know that feeling, that you get when you are are the edge of a cliff. There is this rush of fear that roller-coasts down your spine, goes deep into your belly, and shoots right into your throat. Your mouth is open, breathing in every ounce of air you can, to quench the doubt and fear. You are terrified, not about flying, but of falling.
In life we will many a times find ourselves at such cliffs, and if you don’t shit your pants out of fear, then you are not normal. Fear is our body’s first response to change, to new beginnings. I, am at new beginning in my life right now and its huge. I just couldn’t stop thinking about how my life is going to turn out and that’s when I realized, I am not alone. Soo many people out there are in the same position as mine. So this is for every soul that is anxious for their future..just breathe and believe.
YOUR FEARS ARE AN ILLUSION. You are a fighter and you have fought to be where you are right now. You did not work this hard to turn around, you are here not to survive, you are here to thrive. It’s just the pessimist in you that is putting you down, exhale it out of your life. If it is change that you are afraid of, then just think about this, everyday the earth, the climate, energy, air, YOU.. change. You seem to deal with all these ginormous changes daily, there is nothing that you cannot do. If you have the power to face the whole worlds adversities, then this minute (though it may seem otherwise right now) change, is just a cake walk.
I understand, to some this is just philosophy. So let me break a Universal fact to you- LIFE IS NEVER CONSTANT, CHANGE IS ITS ESSENCE. What is change actually ? It’s just like a new day, it’s different. Somehow over the years, the world has made us think of change as a fearful thing. A caterpillar changes into a butterfly, a lump of clay changes into a piece of art, a seed changes into a sapling. Change, new beginnings, edge of a cliff.. whatever you may call it, it’s all good. Face it like a BOSS, because you are nothing less. You don’t know what tomorrow is going to be like, even if your brain thinks it’s going to be horrible, there is an equal chance that it is going to be epic. IT IS GOING TO BE EPIC.
I understand that asking a person to just stop being afraid is illogical. What I want you to do is to re thing about all those times when you were in this exact same situation, but it all turned out okay. so live in the present and believe in the power within you. A little positivity never hurt anyone, right ? Don’t worry about these little things; you will miss out on the amazing experiences of life. Change is amazing, and you were born ready for it.
