Thriving Thursdays: What Scares You?

Thriving Thursdays: What Scares You?

Thanks to Chris the Story Reading Ape once again for inviting me to be a guest at the tree-house.  This post is already live there, but I want to re-share it here too. (Click here.)  

Of course every day I wish for you to thrive. However, Thursday is the day I make a big deal over it.  So here I go again! 

If something truly frighten us it’s huge (at least to us).  Oddly enough, those big fears can be overcome by small things.  One little step at a time, one day at a time, gradually.

When you see yourself overcoming part of a fear each day it will lift you up — you will thrive.  To quote one of my favorite people in history…

Do one thing that scares you every day… Eleanor Roosevelt

Wishing you a thriving Thursday.

Mega hugs,

    • You’ve got that right, Lavinia! It’s like some dystopian horror show. I recommend facing the news in small doses. 😀 Seriously though, I can’t handle much of it at a time. Thanks for visiting. Have a marvelous Monday.

  1. I don’t like the idea of being scared, but it does always feel good to overcome a fear. Thanks for some scary advice, Teagan. It’s late, so, I’ll send a hug back but wich you a fantastic Friday.

  2. Overcoming some fears is easier said than done. Sometimes, depending on what the fear is, I will visualize myself doing what I’m afraid of. The fear can only scare me for a little while when it’s only a visual in my mind. I had a fear I had overcomes years ago but it returned. There are some fears that we have no control over, for example, what another person can do to us, but we can control how we handle it. Happy Thursday.

  3. I overcome fears by thinking and envisioned places I have been and liked very much. I relive events that happened in those places and magically the burden of fear disappears or at least becomes bearable.

  4. Interesting post….facing our fears is the only way to beat them. I spent the first forty years of my life in a state of anxiety….and I had a serious needle phobia…but I am glad to say that I beat both the anxiety and the phobia…and yes it did make me feel very good….:) Thank you dear Teagan…I love your thought provoking posts….Enjoy a lovely evening and keep warm.

    • You are so right, Suzanne. I realize that it’s much easier said than done. As I told Gerlinde over at the “tree-house” I had to face a fear at work this morning — a meeting filled with toxic stuff and people, feeling like the world would be against me. I have hardly slept all week because of it. I felt like the “comical” photo of a lone cat walking past a line of German Shepherd dogs! LOL. But like the photographed cat, I sauntered past them, (pretending to be) fearless. Mega hugs my friend.

  5. The cow image cracked me up, Teagan. I have found over the years that most fears can be faced and overcome once I set my mind to it. I don’t fear much at all these days. I wish that was true for those in the world who face really terrifying events. Thanks for spreading the love. Huge hugs and keep thriving.
