Purposefully Playing with the Fears that Hold Us Back
A Couple Fears
-My own reactions.
-What my child thinks of me.
What do our kids say might help?
Having a plan for the day and offering explanations for changes to plans helps.
Being startled can sometimes help us break out of a motor loop.
Reminder: Different people respond differently.

We are the ones creating the fear, so let’s recreate it into trust, but how?
We might not always understand what value something might have during the really tough times, but when we come back to a place of TRUST, it often becomes clear later why there was value in what was happening.
Connecting from that heart space of love helps dissipate that energy of fear.
Building COURAGE is like a muscle!
I'm working on seeing how our fears are like motor loops coming up. Our fears are just emotions. We can watch them and let them go.
Surrender to what IS.
I think I am able to face fears by realizing that sometimes there needs to be challenging times. I need to believe I can work through them and trust that things somehow will turn out okay.
Be a big enough SPACE to watch and release whatever arises.
Fear is just the limited version of love directed at our 'not-wants.' But a loving, expansive mindset is flipping it toward focusing on what we do want.
When you let go of the need to control, you let go of the fear.
LOVE is the answer.
