Conquering fear! - inspiring emotional health

I have a confession to make. I have been procrastinating starting my blog out of fear. While it's true I have been busy with end of semester, the kids' school & sports, and all the other good stuff that comes along with a full life, I have also felt in my heart this nagging fear of starting this internet dialogue to get my message out.

It may sound silly but, while I am passionate about helping people live healthy lives, I also am nervous about people reading it. It feels vulnerable to me, expressing my thoughts & feelings into the realm of cyberspace. What if someone disagrees with me, posts a negative comment, misunderstands what I write...all this can be crippling. What if I misspell a word?

Here I sit, battling my fears. Yet, only I have the power to answer the question. Who will win today? Me or my fear.

Eleanor Roosevelt said, "Do something everyday that scares you."  I love that kind of spirit. The fighter spirit. The one that says "this is hard and uncomfortable, but I will find the strength to do it anyway".

I'm posting my blog today, inviting people who I know (and don't know) to read it, and opening my heart to share my thoughts with you. I will choose not to allow fear to win today.

How about you? What are you afraid of? Where is fear winning in your life? The only time healthy, positive change can happen is when we are willing to step into the ring and battle.

One reason for my blog is to stand beside you as you battle. It's not easy to change. You may not always feel like you're "winning". But, you can find the courage to keep fighting when there are people surrounding you, encouraging you to press on when you feel defeated.

Write down one change you will work on that feels scary. Maybe it's trusting more in your relationships, or resisting the urge to snack when you're lonely.  Whatever it is, write it down. Start working on it. The first step to victory is to step in the ring.

  4. Unfortunately there are a lot of AIDS/Herpes denials on Herbal cures still out there. I did research on them after I was tested HIV/Herpes positive I was so worried am I going to die soon. I continue my search again on herbal remedy for Std, then I found lots of testimony on how Dr Itua Herbal Medicine Cured HIV/Aids, Herpes Virus,Copd, Hepatitis, Diabetes, On websites sharing their testimonies, which made much more sense to me. All the authors pronounce Dr Itua As a man with Good Heart, I pick interest in their testimonies and I contact him about my situation then he gave me procedure how it works, I proceed after one week he courier his Herbal Medicine to me and instruct me on how to drink it for two weeks to cure. I receive His Herbal Medicine so I drank it for two weeks as I was told then after 2 days I go for a test I found out I was cured from HIV/Aids & Herpes Virus, I pay homage to him 2 months ago to his country to celebrate with him on his African festival which he told me it usually happens every year. I know there are lots of (HIV)/Aids&Herpes Virus denials of Herbal Remedy movement the same few doctors and they represent a very small faction of the community. I could have died because I refused Natural Herbs Cures for so long, but luckily, by the grace of God I am alive to tell my story.
