This week, I am doing my quotes on Fear.

I've noticed that this is the one area of my life I've allowed to take control and create havoc in all ways. I've almost lost to much to fear... that I need to learn when it's appropriate and when it's more damaging to my life and my future.

Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can, paradoxically, make you a far happier and more productive person. ~Dr. David M. Burns
****First of all I need to accept my fears and understand that they are necessary. Without them I have no idea who I'd be, however it has kept me safe and kept me protected. I am happy person, I live my life well, now, I just need to conquer those few areas in my life where I am truely fearful.

Fear is a question: What are you afraid of, and why? Just as the seed of health is in illness, because illness contains information, your fears are a treasure house of self-knowledge if you explore them. ~Marilyn Ferguson

****This is so true, I have to search out the reasons for my fear so I can once again understand myself and gain control of my future. Without doing this I am no different than the woman I was a year ago.

Fear is that little darkroom where negatives are developed. ~Michael Pritchard
****This is so true. It creates negative for you, and for those around you. Fear is a disease that infects without prejudice.

Feel the fear and do it anyway. ~Susan Jeffers,
**** I need to get this tattooed right above my heart... as a reminder that feeling the fear is acceptable, and doing it is the expectation.
