Sunday night I had to kill a spider in my son’s room before he went to bed. Hubby wasn’t available so it was all up to me. It got me to thinking about how, if we want to progress in our lives we have to decide to push through our fear to do what is necessary. I recorded this video soon afterward:
Profound or simple, it really was a resonate thought in my head. I just finished reading the book Feel the Fear . . . and Do It Anyway so these sorts of thoughts are forefront in my mind. When I realized the bug was in my son’s room my 1st thought was to ignore him, but I couldn’t because I didn’t want him to get on my son as he slept. Same is true with my fears: I often am insightful enough to know they are there but what so badly to ignore them … but I’ve gotten to the point where I can’t, because I don’t want them to inhibit me any longer. Then I realized I *had* to do it … and I freaked out … I literally threw a bit of a tantrum and begged the spider to go away! LOL! When that didn’t work I made a decision to move through my fear, got a broom, plotted, planned then finally ACTION! WAP!!! Even as I as doing it I freaked out, but I DID IT ANYWAY. When I realized I had succeeded and it was over I was so proud of myself and felt a rush of relief and extreme satisfaction. The same goes for when you face something that’s been terrorizing you and you succeed!
Anyhoo, hope this blesses you as silly as it was. Be encouraged.
