Fear and Indecision reside across the street from Promises and Dreams. They’ve invited one another over occasionally in hopes they could coexist, but Fear overpowers Dreams and Promises, leaving only Indecision. This leads to believing each step and every turn taken is wrong. Eventually, Promises and Dreams get the entire neighborhood to sign a petition to exile Fear and Indecision because all they have ever done is bring sadness to positive hearts and souls like theirs. An echo of good riddance fills their lovely town.
I know you’ve grasped the moral of my mini tale. If not by the title, then by the context of it. It is time to band fear and indecision from your mind, so that you may prosper. To step forward you must move on from familiarity, and embrace all encompassing change. We are creatures of habit, so any slight alterations to our lifestyles or plans may evoke fear. If you can’t “escape” it…chase it. Won’t we find beyond it our true selves awaiting our physical body’s arrival? I don’t know about you, but I would love to live in a city without fear and indecision, immersed in positive energy.
Since that isn’t possible in our world, we can learn to work through our inabilities to decide things. It’s essential to “weigh” outcomes, the pros and cons, and if it will change our current situation immediately. During this thought process it is best to think about the now and not the later. It is also beneficial to remember that there will always be some bad with the good. Most things just come down to “the better option”. I’ve come to find that the better option is usually the most uncomfortable one. You can’t expect change if you don’t make them. You can’t expect results without actions. Everything comes full circle with decisions, and your concerns will exist with you regardless.
This is not to say always remove the future from your mind when thinking about things because some longterm choices may intertwine with what is yet to come. It is just easier to come to conclusions when you think about the immediate effects. Often times the thoughts we have that cause us to question every tiny thing are the very thoughts that will take us directly to our happiness, which affords us an inner peace we would have never known.
