Wonderful Wednesday-Releasing Fear and Anxiety Before Making A Decision


“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'” ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Everyone makes mistakes in their lives. I know I’ve made a few that brought me not pride in doing because they were silly mistakes and if I had really weighed my choices at the time, I probably wouldn’t have made those mistakes. But hey that’s life, we learn our lesson and move on.

The truth of the matter is, most of the mistakes we make in our lives often stems from fear. They are created in a place of anxiety and doubt. Doubt in our abilities, our relationships and about who we are as a person. When doubt and anxiety begin making choices in your life, don’t expect anything to go well.

The choices we make in our lives don’t have to be made out of fear, anxiety or stress. They don’t have to be a reaction to our life experiences nor do they have to be made on the spur of the moment.  They can instead be made by, reflecting on the situation and asking yourself.  “What outcome do I want from the choice or choices I’m about to make?”

Try to remain centred in your thoughts and not fall into the old pattern of fear because at the end of the day you are the only person who has to live with the mistakes you’ve made. They may have an adverse effect on the people around, but you are the one who will live with that movie – “should’ve/could’ve” playing in your head. Mistakes do happen, life is full of tough choices, just remember there are always several paths to get you to your desired destination or the results you seek. Choose wisely!
