today has been a struggle for me as old fears bubble to the surface. the words that usually come easily are falling flat and heavy. drafts and plans that felt so exhilarating just days ago feel like an intolerable vulnerability. are these fears mine? or did someone teach them to me? ☀️
fear is a feeling that keeps us small. it gets passed on genetically and socially, through words, actions, and thought. it can take on a life of its own, keeping you bound to people, places, and things that are not yours to take on. this is a primary function of guilt - to handcuff you to old belief systems that no longer serve. to people that can’t comprehend your light.
I have to forgive myself for all the things I have done out of guilt, out of selfishness, out of self-loathing, out of greed, out of love, out of being. we are all explorers, learning to navigate the minefield that is embodiment. I know my truth, I know my power. I also know my tenderness, my sensitivity. it’s okay to feel afraid. it’s just a feeling after all. my invitation is to transform those feelings into empowered action. someone else might have taught me the fear, but it is up to me to learn to nurture myself through it, to gird and embolden my spirit, and turn it all into gold.
