Above all, don’t fear difficult moments. The best comes from them.
CONTINUING ON THE SERIES OF FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN
This morning as I continue blogging about fear of the unknown. This may also lighten up the stress levels that go along with fear.
First and foremost, you need to understand the cause of the fear. That was the first lesson that we were taught from our doctors in Mexico.
Remember, fear is a natural human instinct. Almost each one of us fears about something or the other. The fear of the unknown stems from certain things, situations or memories in life. Ask yourself, what you fear the most and what kind of situation you frequently avoid in your routine life. Once you are able to figure out the root cause of the fear, you will find it easier to combat it.
In some cases, the fear of the unknown would be based on certain factors that are beyond our control. In such instances, educating oneself about the fear is the best way to curb the fear of the unknown. For instance, some individuals fear that the world will come to end soon.
Some fear that they might get trapped in an elevator with nobody to help them. These fears may appear dramatic and are beyond one’s control.
Learning about the real risk can help one a great deal over here. For example, if the have been assured that no one has been trapped in the elevator for more than 5 minutes, you will be able to eradicate the fear of the unknown to a great degree.
The actual chance of the world coming to an end in the year 2021 is less than 1%. As you learn about these realities, this can ease your fear.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
You can never make a full decision on only a little information. But most of the time, all the information is not readily there for you to see.
This is where your intuition really helps. If you’re feeling a lot of hesitation even though logically it sounds fine; then it may not be something to dive into. If you’re feeling drawn to it, then either it’s the right thing or there is a lesson in it that a part of you wants to learn.
In uncertainty, stay very aware of your feelings throughout the day. If the feelings are more heavy than expansive, it may be something you let go without having to find out what those feelings were indicating early on. If you have a lot of really good feelings inside even though doubts may enter your mind later, then going with it is probably a much better road to follow.
Let your intuition be your guide, but keep your mind alert to process what that sense is telling you.
This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. Today I’m going to blog on the herb - PARSLEY.
Parsley is much more than a throw-away garnish or after dinner breath freshener. It can hold its own against any green as a worthy supplier of cell protecting antioxidants known as flavonoids, which research shows play a role in fighting heart disease and cancer.
Parsley is a herb often used in soups, salads, and even middle-eastern dishes. It is known for its refreshing aroma and intense flavor. However, it is mostly used for garnishing and decorating dishes. Not only does it taste good, but it also provides a lot of benefits.
As its quite common for herbs to be used as herbal teas, the same can be done with parsley.
It can be used for garnishing healthy shakes as well. Generally, parsley is meant for adding aroma and a slight taste to something, but it is often used for fixing bad breath, aiding heart health, and even protecting your body against chronic illnesses.
Parsley can be used in many different ways to support almost every aspect of your health. So, if you’re looking for reasons why you should try adding more parsley into your life, then stay tune for tomorrow’s blog.
MANAGE YOUR SOCIAL CALENDAR
It’s great that you’ve identified the friends and family who build you up and make you feel happy, but don’t overdo it. Acknowledge your limits and book in one or two social engagements a week, with plenty of JOMO time in between them.
Otherwise, you might find yourself falling into the trap of saying yes to everything; through obligation or fear of missing out and you’ll be back to square one.
1. Going to bed early.
2. Not leaving the house.
3. Not going to a party.
My childhood punishments have become my adult goals.

A journey to the unknown shores needs a port, a ship, a wind; but more important than all of them: courage; courage to leave the known for the unknown!
Until Wednesday, fear keeps us rooted in the past. Fear of the unknown, fear of abandonment, fear of rejection, fear of not having enough, fear of not being enough, fear of the future-all these fears and more keep us trapped, repeating the same old patterns and making the same choices over and over again. Fear prevents us from moving outside the comfort-or even the familiar discomfort-of what we know. It’s nearly impossible to achieve our highest vision for our lives as long as we are being guided by our fears.
