DAY 340 – Face Your Monster
Monsters don’t just come from nowhere …they come from us. They come from people. Our monsters are essentially lurking all around us every day, even in our own imaginations. I must tell you that an imagined monster can be just as terrifying as a real one. Fear and trauma do not seem to care if they come from a real world or imagined one. This past year especially, I have consistently encouraged myself to face my monsters. I walk boldly up to my fears and let them know that I am pressing forward whether it is easy or extremely difficult. These monsters do not appear as you see in horror and sci-fi stories on tv. They appear in the form of setbacks, denials, depression, anxiety and all those things that block our paths to whatever metric of success we have set for ourselves. I have been told NO so many times and I’ve simply smiled, said thank you, and went directly to build my dreams independent of that source. I am now used to facing my monsters or those difficult challenges in my life. It has taken decades to understand and will take even more years to master. More than often, my smile is my only weapon in this scary world we live in with Monsters at every turn. Imagine going into battle daily with only a smile and maybe a positive outlook. Welcome to my world.
