You can let your inner light shine by not succumbing to fear. Fear can paralyze you. Fear can also make you do some crazy things. Never let fear consume you. Fear to take a step forward, stay where you are or take a step backwards is unhealthy. I wrote this because there are so many who are trapped by fear; afraid to go out of their house, afraid to drive a car or a different type of fear.
You might try reviewing your options, play the different scenarios in your mind and visualize the outcome for each. Once you have made your choice the next step is to just do it. Make your move without second guessing yourself. You might try not thinking about it at all and just doing it, too much thought on the subject might just be too much. If you have tried numerous times without success, it might be time to seek the advice of a professional.
Fear cancels out faith and faith cancels out fear. In order to have faith you have to cancel all fear. Let your faith guide you, whether it be faith in yourself or faith in your religion, let it carry you and guide you. When you have fear you have no faith, it cancels it out. You cannot have both at the same time, only one. Make your faith is stronger than your fears.
Sometimes very important decisions are put off by fear. You wait for things to get better, you wait for things to change, but the bottom line is you have fear of change. What is going to be different? Fear is holding you back. Whatever your reasoning is, the only thing that gets wasted is life, sometimes years of life and sometimes a lifetime of happiness.
Through faith and love for yourself, you can let your inner light shine. When you have inner love and happiness you won’t listen to people with negative thoughts. You will only focus on your words and your footsteps leading you to where you are supposed to be.
“Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.”~Thich Nhat Hanh
The only thing that can come out of fear is regret. Build your self-confidence up, know your strengths and weaknesses (yes, everybody has them) and let your inner light shine. When fear does not control you, you have a light that shines within you telling you that you can do this, you can do that, you look amazing and that you are amazing! It is so important for you to hear those words, to say those words and to agree with those words. Cherish you and others will start to cherish you too. Don’t let anyone dim your light; it should shine bright for the world to see.
Isaiah 41:10 NIV
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
