We often spend our lives being scared of change or anything that seems even just a little bit challenging. This ALWAYS holds us back from being the very best we can be.You have to realize that letting go of the fear that is holding you back is one the best things you can ever do for yourself. It doesn’t matter what you’re afraid of, let it go. My mommy always told me something and it will forever be true; fear is not from God. Which means that when you feel scared it’s because Satan is trying to block a blessing from you.I’m not just speaking about spiritual blessings. I’m also speaking about every day blessings. Maybe you are wanting to lose weight but are scared to take the plunge into a good routine to get started. Maybe you want a promotion at work but are afraid to put yourself out there and bring it up to your boss. Maybe you wanna go back to school and get your degree but are afraid you will fail. No matter what the situation is, that fear IS NOT from God. God wants you to succeed!You have to want to succeed just as much as God wants you to. You have to believe in yourself and realize how strong you truly are. You have to trust God to carry you even on your worst days and know in your heart that he will never make you go through anything that you can’t handle.Take the chance! Saddle up your horse and ride out into the field even if you’re surrounded by a pack of wolves and ride for your life! You have to fight and you have to let the fear go.I am guilty of fearing so many things in my life. I have allowed so many great opportunities to pass me by. I have turned down help and encouragement from others because I was scared. But no more!A couple weeks ago I made a decision to take a step forward in my life. To let go of the fear. My current goals in my life are to finish getting my GED and to pursue a career as a Respiratory Therapist or a Medical Assistant and last but not least to finish my weight loss journey and reach my goal weight.Of course I have other goals for myself but those two are my top most important right now. I have to worry about myself first and let go of the fear. My life isn’t over and neither is yours. You have time and you have to worry about yourself FIRST. In the end all you have is yourself and God. It’s great to have family and friends but let’s face it… you have to live with yourself everyday and not anyone else.I may not know you but just know I am rooting for you and I know you can accomplish every goal that you have set for yourself. More importantly, God knows you can accomplish every goal that you have set for yourself.So, saddle up…. it’s time to ride!
