I was jast thi kin'we all ha e gus' things of which we are afraid It doesn't matter Our age or station. What is kind of funny is haw our fears show themselves. We may feel frustrated or angry or fired or reticent, when maybe at the root of it, is fear. Fear uses energy and preoccupies our thoughts even when we are'not aware of it, maybe especially when we are not aware of it. It could be worth getting to the root of why we are feeling what we are feeling. Naming something removes it from the fear of the unknown. We may be able to do something that would decrease or remove the source of fear. Facing a fear is part of decreasing our Thinkin' feeling of loss of control or powerlessness. It can get into a real unproductive, nasty cycle. Facing it, identifying it, whatever "it" may be, is a step in removing the hold "it" may have in our mind, our emotions, and our actions. It could free us up for more productive, more pleasant, and happier things. It may take some work, but it could benefit our health, our circumstances, or even others around our community and us. Next time things seem out-of-sorts, maybe take a moment to ask yourself, what actually has me unsettled, and see what you may be thinkin'.
