"There are only two real emotions: Love and Fear." ~ author (uncertain)
I've heard this quote a lot and often wondered about its accuracy. I started applying it to my life--decisions I've made, the road I've traveled. Do I agree that love and fear are the only two "real" emotions, I'm not sure but what I do know is that these two opposing emotions have been at the root of everything I've done in my life.
Think back to all of the feelings you've experienced and the decisions you've made. Maybe you've been silent about something that was bothering you because you wanted to keep the peace or perhaps you acted submissively because you didn't want to be judged or not liked. When we make fear-based decisions we usually end up regretting them and sometimes we end up blaming or hating ourselves for the outcome and for being unauthentic. When we make decisions based on love and trust, we may sometimes feel a little vulnerable but ultimately, we feel free, strong and empowered for having the courage to choose what our heart desires.
Since you are the co-creator of your life with God and the universe, you get to choose...going forward, will you live your life and make decisions based on love and trust or fear and doubt? Everything you need to live an authentic, fulfilled life is already inside you. Trust it, call upon it, use it to create a life you can be excited about.
