I call this picture Taking A Leap of Faith:
Me jumping into the unknown knowing that magnificent things await for me there💫
One of the biggest lessons I learned working in a nursing home is to live my life to the fullest. Way too many people die with the pain of regret feeling as though they have wasted their lives whether by fulfilling other people’s expectations and/or limiting themselves usually due to some type of fear😳
I’ve learned a lot about fear in the last few years & the biggest take away is to figure out what they are & face them headstrong✊. Everything you ever wanted is on the other side of your fears😮
On top of all that, most of our fears are not even realistic, they’re just stories we tell ourselves in our heads🤔. It has been said often that FEAR stands for False Evidence Appearing Real.
I’ve experience this many times where I had wasted so much energy focusing on what I feared would happen when it really never did. Plus even when all our fears do come true, we learn to adapt & pull through the most difficult times which exponentially makes us stronger &more resilient💪
A big part of what makes facing fears so difficult is the unknown that is attached to it😱. Therefore facing your fears is not just about the fear itself but you also have to have faith that things will fall into place & that you will be able to handle any challenge that comes your way.
Learning & having the courage to believe in faith over fear has been the most life changing thing I have done😀. First, I did it when I took my 3 kids & left my ex husband, can you imagine what my life would be like if I was still there? Second, was when I risked it all & spoke out🗣 against the lockdowns as a nurse, I don’t even want to think of where I would be if I hadn’t faced that one.
To live our best & a purposeful life we have no choice but to put faith over fears. It’s extremely scary at first but then you just do it & you realize that there’s so much more to you then you thought🤗. You find ways to overcome all the obstacles which increases your confidence & self-esteem😏. The more you face your fears, the braver you become.
There is no limits to what you can accomplish in this lifetime, the only limits are the ones you impose upon yourself. Don’t be one of those people that die with the pain of regret🙅🏻♀️
Be brave, put faith over fear & live your life to the fullest, trust me you don’t want to play it small & merely exist, let the world know who you are & make your life count☺️
You only live once after all🤷🏻♀️…better make it worth it😉
