Becoming the Fearless Radical Optimist

They say I am fearless but crazy.  They tell me that I am making a huge mistake and I will live to regret it. Behind my back, they snicker and say that I am a reckless and irresponsible mother. That I am not only ruining my own life, but my daughter's as well. They cannot imagine WHY I would ...

恐惧是人性

设想一下,我浪费了大半生的时间在害怕。我竟如此懦弱以至无法去追求真正想要的东西,或者去体验能够令我敞开和充实我人生的一切,甚至不敢对身边的人说出自己的心底话。

设想一下,我被恐惧完全瘫痪以至颠倒梦想,甚至自怜。我以为我的安乐窝无比地安全,只要我不越过黄线一步,就没有什么能够伤害我了。殊不知躲在那虚假的安全网后根本起不了半点保护作用。

设想一下,日复一日在我脑海中停不下来、不断荼毒我的无益对话。我甚至令自己相信最好的办法就是紧紧抱住我的恐惧呆在家里。与其用同样的精力和时间来拯救自己,我竟然投入这么多的精力和时间在欺骗自己身上。

我们当中有多少人剥夺了自己想要过的生活,并否定自己成为自己想要成为的人?

This Saturday, July 18th 2015, will be a milestone of sorts for The Art of Fearless Living and, of course, myself, because for the first time ever, I’ll be meeting my fans face to face.
