grace

i give these fears to you
to take flight and be gone.
i let go of them, free my
mind and let the past be.
i will not wait for a chance
encounter to bring me down.
i will not allow myself that
luxury, again to wallow in
self pity. i will not fall into
self-loathing and pain, again.
i can be the person He
created me to be, awesome
and beautiful, loving and
compassionate. i will be
that person eventually.

this was for writers island prompt: chance encounters and flight, it also works for sunday scribblings prompt fearless.

i am trying to remember what it felt like to be fearless.. i don't know that i want to revisit that part of me,, let alone ever be that person again... as to me to be fearless is to be wild and reckless and chaotic...

i never experienced true fear until i stopped obeing perpetually angry,, and now that i feel it,, as if for the first time,, i think it adds an innocence to my being that i was sorely lacking before...

i guess there's a difference in healthy fear and deblitating fear that creates inablity to function.

Don't ever be afraid to be you!

I think fear that stops function is really a lack of confidence.
You express it well.

Making regular affirmations about the postiveness of your identity means that you WILL realise its truth.

Perhaps you have already.
