Much of our suffering in life stems from thoughts of not having enough and not being enough.
These thoughts stir up all kinds of fears that grip us with such force we can’t even see the distortion they cause. We fail to see our greatness. We focus on what’s missing. We conform and we hide who we really are, hoping that others will accept, value and love us.
The good news is that we can reduce our internal fears through the simple act of appreciation. Appreciation stops the brain from streaming those self-destructive messages that drain your energy.It’s a neurological fact. The brain cannot be in a state of appreciation and fear at the same time. This means that when we choose to live with appreciation we naturally reduce fear and increase resilience.
Remember that fear only runs as deep as the mind allows it to!
