Facing Your Fears

October 13th is Face Your Fears day. Am I the only one laughing that it isn't on Friday the 13th? That would make for a great day to face your fears, wouldn't it?! But in reality, a superstition about Friday the 13th is minor compared to some real fears that people face on a daily basis.

The world these days seems faster, smaller, and much more scary than when I was younger. Things that used to impact only people within a 100 mile radius are now blasted out on the news all across the world. I'm not so sure that all this extra knowledge is good for anyone. Or maybe I'm just a fan of ignorance in a lot of situations.

Regardless of what fears we have and what battles we are facing, we all need something to cling to; something to turn to when things get tough or we get scared. There are as many ways to deal with fears as there are people in this world. And some supports work better for certain situations.

1. Some people draw great strength and comfort from their faith. Maybe there's a special Scripture passage that helps you through tough times or gives you courage when you need it.

2. Perhaps it's a close friend. Is there someone you can call on any time, day or night if you need a comforting shoulder to lean on?

3. Do you have a kick @$$ playlist to listen to when you need a boost?

4. Maybe some inspirational quotes can help you get through your trying times.

5. Or a story of someone else who has overcome something and made the world a better place because of it.

6. Does humor help you laugh your way out of a bad situation?


7. Or the endorphins from a great workout?

Thanks for the picture, Jenn!
8. Sometimes playing with my kids gives me the courage to do what needs to be done.

9. Doing a good deed for someone else.
 10. Sometimes there isn't much you can do, sadly. You either have to pull up your big girl (or boy) britches and do what has to be done. Or sometimes you have to ask for the wisdom to understand why you can't move past what you want to.

Whatever fears you're facing, I hope that you can find some strength and encouragement in knowing that we all have fears. Some people may hide them better than others, but none of us are perfect or 100% brave all the time.

What fears have you faced? What helps you face those fears?
