Live your Life Pt. 1: Fighting Fears

Posted on 18 January 2010 by Liza Mae V.

It is funny how the last month’s events caused me to amplify my thoughts so loudly that I can not stop thinking about the life I want to live versus the life I am living.  Those two points are far in between but the gap could easily be narrowed if I … stopped worrying.

On December 26th, 2009, I seen a message on facebook from my cousin that our mutual cousin Paula had died.  She was under 40 and had a family (husband and two daughters).  She had been fighting cancer for a couple of years and her time had expired on earth as we know it.  RIP Paula!

Last week, my brother got in a serious car accident which landed him in the hospital with a broken collar bone and minor lacerations.  He could of been seriously hurt or dead but thankfully God gave him another chance at life.

With all these occurrences happening around me it made me think and ask questions within myself.  Why is it that I live my life of mediocrity to only want what everyone else wants?  Why do I settle for a secure life rather than a happy life?  Or if I am so unhappy why do I continue to live unhappily?  Why do I have wait until I find out I am dying or had a life/death experience to do the things I truly want to do?

Fear is the biggest monster one has.  It gets in the way of many things and stagnates growth and disables one’s abilities to be free.   So I’ve decided to make some major changes in my life which will occur in the next 3 weeks.  Story will unfold shortly, stay tuned.
