Why So Serious?

Do you take yourself too seriously? 

What does it feel like? I stop breathing.

My shoulders come up to my ears, my jaw get's tight and eyes narrow. Do you know the feeling?

I believe the sensation I am describing is adrenaline fueled by fear. 

why do we take ourself so seriously? 

one word.


...Afraid of getting it wrong, afraid of not knowing enough, afraid of being too much.

the list goes on...

Today as I was journaling the notion came over me that for today I am NOT going to take myself so seriously.

Instead, I am going to look at the world through my childlike lenses the ones that see love, not fear.

Because really, everything I need to know for right now, is inside of me and far more accessable when I am seeing life through the lens of love.

Today, even though its Monday, I am going to take myself less seriously. Join me?
