Fear. You can allow it to consume you. Or you can use it to catapult you to victory.
For as a long as I can remember I lived my life in fear.
Fear of being abandoned (MAJOR daddy issues). Fear of not being good enough (Hello, perfectionism). Fear of being a shitty mom.
Fear of being broke.
Fear of losing everyone I love.
Fear of failing. BIG time.
Fears can cause us to make some pretty F-ed up choices. Putting ourselves in scary situations (more on that later) OR removing ourselves from life altogether.
Not gonna lie. I have to talk myself off the edge...OFTEN.
But the more I tell my fear to F off, the less it rears its ugly head. 👊🏼
AND the more present my STRENGTH becomes.
What is YOUR biggest fear? .
I was reminded of this today as YES I love myself, especially my unique weirdness, be careful you have it too, your own unique one, but here is not the point. I actually realised that I couldn't remember when was last time I said I LOVE YOU to myself... and you?
Want to see more? I am sure the movie scene from the movie Angel-A by Luc Besson I've shared on my FB page & group will inspire you to go in front of the mirror and simply say "I LOVE YOU" while looking at yourself. No mirror, no problem, use your phone in selfie mode and see the beauty in front of you, YOU ❤️ and say I Love You to YOU ❤️ Check the video by following the link @pascalegiordanohappy or search for it on Youtube. #mindyourhappiness
One way I keep perspective and joy in my heart for this daily mom grind is scripture. Every morning while I sit and drink my coffee, I read a verse to start my day. Scripture is a beautiful reminder that He is in control and when we surrender our hearts, lives and situations to Him, He gives us grace and power to overcome and thrive. Motherhood is my struggle most days. I’m not as patient as I want to be. I don’t do as many adventures and crafts as I think I should. Whining makes me absolutely crazy. But At the end of each day, God saw fit to make me the mother of the two strong willed, sassy, beautifully created girls in my care. It’s a tough job He has given but did you know that we have everything we need inside of us to be everything they need? It’s true! Sure, there will be hard days and we will feel like throwing in the towel, but the reward of snuggles, hugs and kisses, seeing those kids succeed in life and hearing them say “I love you” makes the hard days a little less hard. Embrace your motherhood Mama friends! You are beautifully created for this job and I know you are amazing at it!💗

Scattering sun rays
For your visual pleasure
••The colors of the sunset result from a phenomenon called scattering. Molecules and small particles in the atmosphere change the direction of light rays, causing them to scatter. Scattering affects the color of light coming from the sky, but the details are determined by the wavelength of the light and the size of the particle.••
