In response to the Daily Posts word prompt and my own whirling thoughts ,I wanted to do a post about what the ultimate transformation in everyone’s life ought to be.The ultimate transformation is the elimination of irrational and detrimental fears.Life is not easy to approach fearlessly when you are saturated in a society that teaches it. We live in a world where failure is seen as a sure sign of weakness, vulnerability ,and shunning. We let this fear of failure take over us and cause us to cram even harder for that last exam or fend off a full on panic attack before out next job interview. We let this fear of thinking of our failures rule our lives and in doing so we miss out on the whole living part of life.The ultimate transformation that we all need to make is to escape this cycle we are born into of fear feeding upon fear, creating a world in which we walk around with wide eyes wondering if anything we do will hit the mark that others have set for us.The thing is to make this transformation we first have to realize that the marks others set for us , rarely matter but rather it is the goals and the dreams we aspire to that ought to direct our choices in life.Secondly, we must realize that there will always be more than one way to get where we want to go in life . We can either take the scenic route, the quicker route, the cheaper route or if we so desire we can even wing it and decided not to really take any fixed route at all.Once you realize these two things you must then learn to remind yourself every step of the way to breathe, to be and to never let anything get in your way, even failure. Your failures that will inevitably happen and the little jaunts in the road which will cause things to not always go your way are just new opportunities to live life to its fullest:Take them for all that they are; Savor each moment you have whether it is going how you wanted it to or not. Life is beautiful even when it is cracked a little, and by loving it for its beauty you put it back together again.Make the ultimate transformation. Love life and rid yourself of the burdens of fear.
-Wishing you the brightest of days,Eva
