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?

The year is coming to a close. Soon, it will be 2015. Looking back on the year 2014, there have been many special highlights.

The Art of Living with Fear

My eyes closed as the wheels began to move the plane backward. I focused on my breath. “What are you afraid of?” I said to myself, “You have been to more dangerous countries. Not to mention, people have made this same trek to lands unknown without your giant travel guide! Chill, darling.” This was the scariest ...
