Is fear a positive or negative emotion? Does it open us up or close us down? Does it cause us to hide or move closer? In the end, fear is what we allow it to be. It can be both healthy and unhealthy all at once.
Currently we live in a time that many are experiencing fear. Much of it is fear of the unknown. Fear of what might be or what might happen. It makes me wonder what we have our hope in. Is it our money, or our jobs? What about our retirement and investments? Are any of these safe? Can they withstand the effects of a broken economy and a broken stock market? Will we ever recover? And if and when we do, what will it look like? How will these times change us, and will it be for the better or for the worse?
This morning my wife and I are having breakfast by candlelight. It’s not because we’re trying to save on electric, but rather because we’re attempting to focus upon what’s important. In this case it’s each other. In the end, we still have each other and regardless of what is happening around us, we want to celebrate each other. To do that we have to find creative ways of expressing our love for each other. Tomorrow we’re heading off into the backwoods. When we find the right spot, we’re going to set the grill up and have a tailgate party.
We each have a choice, (there’s that word again), we can live in fear or we can make the most of a difficult situation and enjoy it. If you don’t know, my wife and I are in the “senior” years of our life. Our deaths will more likely be from natural causes that being struck by a meteor falling out of the sky. So rather than being afraid to go outside we choose to make each day count. It causes us to be creative and to think outside of the box. Quite tough to do for a couple of old people, but we manage.
Remember, most of the things we fear will never come to pass. What they will do is create a great deal of anxiety in our everyday life. You ultimately have to choose where you’re going to live and what you’re going to allow to control you. Think about it.
