Last week, I had a pretty task-filled week. My calendar consisted of tons of meetings, projects, and even homework for my doctoral class. Normally, I would feel confident with my weekly schedule. However, something was interesting about my feelings this week. As I stared at my computer screen, I suddenly felt overwhelmed with my weekly schedule and then I looked at my monthly schedule and felt even more overwhelmed. At that very moment, I stopped myself in my tracks and decided to choose love over fear. I decided to see my overwhelming feeling as a sense of fear that I will not complete my tasks to the best of my ability and it is okay to give myself permission to feel the feelings, but I must counter the overwhelming feelings with love. Love allows me to appreciate the moment and express gratitude to even participate in my daily tasks. Moreover, it is such a pleasure and honor to contribute to society. As I decide to choose love, it is a great way to reflect on how I always want to choose love in everything that I do and in every event in my life.
“I believe that every single event in life is an opportunity to choose love over fear.” – Oprah Winfrey
Regardless of circumstances, every opportunity allows us to choose love over fear. Love allows us to align with our highest self and make a beautiful contribution to this world. It allows us to change the response of our circumstances in a miraculous way. The opposition would be to choose fear and fear does not align with our highest self. If we follow fear, it will bring out negative emotions. However, we can use the fear indication to apply more love, specifically self-love throughout the day.
As we move forward through the day-to-day flow of life, it is crucial to appreciate every moment of the day. Appreciate the good and even the moments that feel uncomfortable because it is an opportunity to choose love, which creates spiritual growth and unconditional gratitude. As I have recently read, “All growth involves choosing love over fear.” Therefore, I will choose love over fear this week and appreciate all moments with unconditional love and sincere gratitude.
Thank you for reading this post! I look forward to your contribution to this week’s discussion.
With Euphoric Love and Gratitude,
