Last night just before I was going to bed I read something that shook me to my core.
It brought back a tidal wave of memories from a 𝒩𝑜𝓉 𝓈𝑜 𝑔𝑜𝑜𝒹 moment in my life.
My sleepy relaxed state turned to hyper energy and then to anxiety and then to pure panic. I let the dogs out. I checked our doors multiple times to make sure they were locked. I un-set and re-set the alarm. I checked the basement. Twice. I ran up those damn basement stairs like something was chasing me.
I crawled in bed and shook...my heart pounding. I couldn’t breathe and my mind was running wild.
It sneaks up on us, doesn’t it? Lurking in the dark corners of our mind and attacking when we least expect it.
I have a vivid imagination. It’s part of being creative I guess. I can see simple shadows and them into terrifying scenes and the power of suggestion is real with me ya’ll. It took me a while to remember that fear is followed by something so much stronger
𝒞𝑜𝓊𝓇𝒶𝑔𝑒 is so much stronger than fear. It’s the scissors ✂️ to the paper 📝
The pb to the j... the light to the darkness.
So if you are feeling fear today... just remember that courage is right behind it waiting to clear out that horrible feeling and leaving you strong and whole again. 👏 ☀️
