Choosing Hope Over Fear.

“Don't be afraid of your fears. They're not there to scare you. They're there to let you know that something is worth it.” ― C. JoyBell C.
My dearest friends...

I was feeling just a bit under the weather today—a side effect of the many medications I must take. These things happen, yes?

Generally speaking, I do my best to muddle my way through this new path that life has created for me. And some days, I get just a little mud on the seat of my pants.

But, today, as I sat quietly trying to gather my thoughts—this overwhelming fear began to wash over me. It literally brought me to my knees.

I am not one to be easily overwhelmed—but today, was certainly cause for it. It's hard sometimes, when I feel my own body failing—and, I don't yet understand how far that failing will go.

But, still I breathe...and when the breathing doesn't help...I remind myself there is still a little learning to be done.

Thankfully, today I had the added reminder (and blessing) from a dear friend, who offered, "Tara, remember our thoughts are like the moonlight—it shines on everything equally, yet in the end, clings to nothing."

Our fears aren't here to cast us to darkness, rather they are here to lead us to our own light. And today, because of you—my hope is restored.

So today, my dears, and with your very blessing—I hope it's alright that I just rest a bit tonight?

But, I promise you with all of my heart and spirit...that I shall have much love and much inspiration to share in the morning.

Much love to all of you - and thank you for this most wonderful gift of your beautiful light.
