The sun sets on another day...
I was thinking about great people today. So many to consider. If you have read this blog at all you will know I despise fear. One person who also felt that way was Marie Curie.
In this constant world of fear let's takes Madam Curies words "Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood” and consider a meaning. Does it mean there is nothing scary out there? No. We see scary all the time. Does it mean there is a world without fear? No, instead it gives us a course of action. The course of action is simple, when we are afraid perhaps we need to understand. When we feel fear we now have a clear action, we should seek knowledge. We should be pushing for understanding.
I had applied this in my life before I ever saw the quote. When I was younger and beaten by older kids in school I tried to understand their point of view. When I was afraid of heights I forced myself to face them. As I have faced fear my whole life I sought to understand why. What would make me feel this tingle in my inner being, and how can I eliminate it. No, this does not make me reckless, but it does open up a different way of approaching each day, a way with my eyes open.
Now in this world there are many reasons to be afraid. We though, all of you, me, everyone, we have the ability to face that fear and sweep it away with knowledge. We can understand and in understanding overcome.
So as the sun sets on another fantastic day, lets set fear aside, lets find a way to learn, to understand, and in the process become better. Make the world a better place by understating, and sweep away the fear each day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy your eve...
