Learning From the Past
Changing the past isn't possible but learning from it is.
If a past event comes to mind that you’d wished gone differently. Ask yourself: What could I have done differently.
Possibly spoke with a softer voice. Taken a few deep breaths before responding. And if it isn’t a good time say something like hey, we’re here to have some fun, lets table this for now and talk about it at another time.
We can’t go back and change things but we can learn from it and handle it differently.

Taming Fear With A Safe Place
When fear rears up, it’s helpful to have safe places to go. Having these spaces set up is a great way to plan ahead for fear.
This could be an actual place or it can be a beautiful visual space to relax in before a big event and when needed.
Safe, tranquil havens will be calming and it’ll be easier to face your fear.
Creating Inspiration With A Better View
Have you ever noticed seeing the areas lacking more than the areas of improvement when doing a task? This has come up for me.
Taking the blinders off and broadening the view is helpful. It opens the door to see the growth and great parts done as well as seeing areas to grow in. Seeing a fuller picture is helpful and inspiring.
LOOK AT THE GLASS HALF FULL
Perception is a very powerful thing, and how you feel about your life affects how you respond. So, think about what you want to happen and you’ll give yourself a much better chance of manifesting it in your life. This won’t happen overnight but just start practicing it with one thought and go from there.
What is one recurring fearful thought you have about something you crave to have in your life? Start reversing this one thought and overtime, this will become a habit.
I used to see the glass half empty often but I'm glad I often see it half full, or more, these days.
KNOW WHERE FEAR LURKS
A lot of times, fear shows up in the body and it affects people in different ways. Identify if or how it lurks and nurture your body. Ex: If it shows up by catching your breath, pay attention to when this happens and release it. Then draw some long, slow, deep breaths in and out to nurture your body.
