This is a blog to connect to other people who intend to live a fearless and engaged life or are already doing so.
Recently I have found myself fighting the overwhelming tide of fear that seams to be all around us. In the news we are surrounded by the many rumors of threats to our security, our economy and our health. Everywhere we look there are warnings about what we are eating or not eating, what we are doing with our money, what we are doing with our lives. You can’t open a magazine or turn on the TV or even talk to friends and colleagues without facing the many reasons why you should be afraid…very afraid…of something.
Well. I, for one, am tired of this everlasting shadow of fear. I want to live my life motivated by love, and joy and, even, fun! I want to believe what I believe and do what I do because of the sheer thrill and will of it.
Now, I realize it will not be the easiest way to live since we have, from infancy, been taught to live in fear; fear of pain, fear of danger, fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of our “enemies”, fear of diseases and so on and so on…. But now that I have overtaken the half century mark, I have decided that I haven’t enjoyed this habitual posture of fear. I have seen a few friends a family pass away and have come to the conclusion that I, probably, will too, even if I adhere to the warnings thrown at me from all directions.
I am not promoting anarchy, exactly, nor do I believe this is all a new idea. It is, however a new idea for me. There are many people in the past and many living now that have managed to live a life motivated by love and joy and fun. I want to learn from these people!
So if you are feeling this way too, or if you have conquered this fearful living perspective, I would love to hear from you. You may be just beginning this adventure, as I am, and need some encouragement. Or, maybe, you are a pro at living the fearless life.
Let’s share our tools and knowledge and even, our experiences….
