fear of the dark

Fear of the dark or what you can’t see?

fear of dark

Think about it.  When we were teaching our grandchildren to swim they were only frightened when they could not feel their feet on the bottom of the pool.  That was their “comfort zone”.  Knowing and seeing that there was a bottom to the pool.

As we get older our Fears never go away but now I feel that our fears are being fanned by flames of others.  We feel that if we are not afraid that we are not like everyone else.  But we are not sheep, or lemmings, we need to take our lives back and learn from people like Winston Churchill who kept the British people from giving up.



From asking someone on a date, to making our first public speech or to making big changes in our life.  We all have our comfort zone and you fear what could or could not happen.  Depending on if you look at a glass half empty or half full.  It is all perception.  It is an emotion caused by a belief.  So if you change your belief you get rid of the fear.

fearRight now we are being overwhelmed with the news of a new President.  People are scared of the unknown, and it feels dark .  The Media is doing very good at feeding the fire with fear and uncertainty.  I think we need to listen to some of the old speeches of Winston Churchill

do not fear

It is written that his wartime speeches famously gave the British lion its roar during the darkest days of the Second World War.

This man was not a professional speaker but he practiced his craft and his speeches are part of our history.

commaThe day may dawn when fair play, love for one’s fellow-men, respect for justice and freedom, will enable tormented generations to march forth serene and triumphant from the hideous epoch in which we have to dwell. Meanwhile, never flinch, never weary, never despair.”


I feel, WE the people should give our countries back their roar.  But quoting Mahatma Gandhi “Be the Change we wish to see in the world”  Get out of the darkness that is shrouding our countries.  Do it with peaceful protests, not with riots.  Having protests with vulgar signs will NOT change the world.   Who do you respect the most in your life?  Who are the people we honour and respect the most and how did they do it?  There are many silent warriors that you will never hear about in a newspaper who are not afraid of the dark.  They are real heroes, they walked away from their computers, they are not liking posts or making comments from their arm chair.  I will be launching a New blog soon called “I Matter You Matter” to show all the amazing people who truly see what needs to be changed in this world.  I have a mission which will go beyond this..stay tuned.

Saving girls who are being tortured and enslaved.  This is the fight women should March for.  This is the fight that needs to be won.
