finally moving through insecurity and some Reiki musings

The task we must set for ourselves is not to feel secure, but to be able to tolerate insecurity. Erich Fromm

I saw this quote years ago, but did not know how to apply it. I was waiting for the perfect circumstances to feel motivated. But, taking action in spite of fear and insecurity is one of the ways to move through to feeling confident. I always gave in to the self-doubt, the apathy, listening to others, and all the other excuses, which led to more depression and inaction because I wasn’t doing anything except talking about making changes. Reiki realization: I have to act despite how I feel or think about myself. Feel the fear and do it anyway… in every aspect of my life…

I am grateful for Reiki. I am grateful for the park and nature. I am grateful to see the truth. I am grateful for my friends who understand that I need time alone to process without attacking my methods. I am grateful that I am letting go of the bullish*t over- sensitivity and taking everything personal. I am grateful for the good life I am creating. I am grateful that I understand my lessons and moving away from blame. I am grateful I have tools for anxiety. I am grateful for meditation.

(The rain has stopped, let’s see if I can get out to take photos today. I NEED my creative outlets… no bread making, no blogging, no photography makes me edgy. I am working so hard inwardly, but I need to express this creative energy in a positive way or else I will implode…)


Living Authentically.
