Today I want to talk about Faith or Fear...which do you live by?
Sometimes I feel like a hypocrite because I try to live my life believing in faith and always looking at the positive but when you suffer from anxiety, fear tends to sneak in like an unwanted guest.
Here is the thing...faith and fear are the same thing. They are both, how you react to the unknown. We can have faith that everything will turn out great or we can fear that it all will go to sh*t.
You may be wondering why I am talking about this and it's mostly because I am officially starting my Yoga Teacher Training in a few days and I am terrified. Sunday morning when I went to yoga, a few of the older students whom have taken the YTT prior were giving me advice....don't take it personal when they yell at you...it is about your intentions and not the end result...they will be strict...you will have fun.
Now, if you know me; all I heard was "they are going to be mean to you" which is NOT what they said but that is what my inner self fears. I fear that I will be embarrassed, I fear that they will call on me and I won't have a clue what I am doing, I fear that I will fail.
I am trying desperately to replace the fear in my heart with faith. Faith that I will have a great time, faith that I will succeed, faith that I will make life long friends, faith that this experience will be amazing.
Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.
