    Let everything happen to you
    Beauty and terror
    Just keep going
    No feeling is final
    ― Rainer Maria Rilke

      I can see why it’s a favorite of yours. I know your views on judging feelings. And while I learn from them all and even step into the fear (not sure about terror!) because I sense what’s waiting on the other side is joy, bliss, etc. I am seeking those yummy feelings. Let me know what you think about the research they present in I AM about the difference in our bodies’ response to ‘positive’ versus ‘negative’ feelings. I spend as much time enjoying the states I enjoy, savoring them, appreciating them and as much as possible avoid fighting/resisting the less pleasant ones. Accept and let flow through, teach me but not get stuck or let them get out of balance.

    When we push pass our unrealistic fear, amazing things happen, we just need to take our first step. I agree so much with what you have to say about fear. I have always have issues with keeping my fear and doubts in check. One being the fact that I am quite fearful of reaching out to others and showing my vulnerable side. Just December, I decided to take a leap, connect with people and it brings good albeit small results. This just keeps moving on. It feels like the Universe is shouting, find a way to overcome your stupid lizard brain and keep moving on, the Universe just wants something good to happen to you. Thanks for the wonderful post. I’m glad to be in the AYWM journey with you.

      Hi wing, so nice to meet you and I’m so thrilled you reached out and commented. Being willing to be vulnerable is scary and yet so rewarding. I’ve come to believe there is a deep, rich power in being authentic and vulnerable. Vulnerability is magnetic. I’m familiar with that lizard brain too. I’m excited to see what the Universe has in store for us on this journey. ; )

    This post reminded me of Marie Forleo’s demonstration of how to feel the difference between fear/inspiration you should honor and fear/resistance you should overcome. I’m just getting started with AYWM and look forward to reading more from you.
