Hope is the only thing stronger than fear. What does this mean & what does this have to do with your health?...A lot actually!
Fear can come in many forms:
You can have a fear of calling a new doctor because what if they are just the last 20 that disappointed you? So you don’t.
You can fear a new protocol or approach that our health coach or doctor encourages you because you had a bad response in the past. So you don’t.
You can have a fear of replacing junk foods with healthy ones because health foods won’t comfort you & that will require you deal with the hard feelings underneath. So you don’t.
Bandaids come in many forms & we are masters at manipulating our environment to fill the hard emotions & uncomfortable feelings. The short term relief often leads us to be prisoners of our fears. We fear anything that could rock the boat & become paralyzed floating out to sea with no sign of the shoreline.
These fears create a cumbersome blockage and stall any forward momentum because like our health our emotions need to be addressed too. When you address fear you free our mind. When you free our mind you take a step forward. But what is this step tied to?!?! HOPE! Everytime you step out and try something new it is with the HOPE that things will be different. That change is possible and that healing & restoration will come.
Hope keeps you going & hope keeps your eyes off our circumstances & onto the future. Hope is a waking dream that with each small step begins to become reality to transform your life. What does hope look like?
Hope sees opportunities rather than obstacles
Hope looks ahead and up (to our Father in heaven)
Hope sees the light despite the darkness
Hope makes choices that are for your future best rather than current comfort
Hope does the hard work now so that there can be a different tomorrow
Hope puts one wobbly foot in front of the next when circumstances are bleak
Hope starts where you are even when you feel unsure or unprepared
Hope begins despite the obstacles that surround you
What does your health routine look like right now to move you towards all the hope you have for tomorrow?
