Secret : Energy :

Do not be afraid; our fate
Cannot be taken from us; it is a gift-

What would you do if fear was removed the equation?

A close friend once asked me the very same question I am asking you this beautiful morning, and I’m here to tell you, this simple little question changed my life. Well, that and the best breakfast burritos in Nebraska did

This seemingly simply question helped me to pause, to listen, in order to break decisions down to their very essence. What I realized was that I was not living each day to the fullest because I was desperately afraid of getting hit by a car, letting my family down, even of success – Tasty success that is!

Pondering this question allowed me to separate my fear, from my dream of breakfast burritos, and in doing so, I realized that I really wanted to hit the road a bit earlier, stay alert early in the morning, in spite of the fear of getting crunched by a Prius.

My friends question helped me to identify my fears and determine whether they deserved as much power as I was giving them.

Daily Meditation:

Often at times I have those dark nights of the soul at 4am, when I’m overcome with fear. Do I let these thoughts rule my choices anymore? Damn right I don’t!

I would like to thank Moisés and Jacklyn Salgado, purveyors of the – For the Love of Food Truck - For helping me to overcome my fear of commuting in the insane, reckless morning traffic in Bellevue, Nebraska. Yes! Their breakfast burritos are totally worth it!!!

    Love breakfast burritos! I understand your fear. I watch people riding their bikes in traffic, or on a windy mountain road, with a long drop off the edge and admire their courage in doing so.

    I’m reading a book now, taking place in Nebraska “”nothing but land:not a country at all,but the material of which countries are made”

      These burritos are totally worth the extra effort! The time of day is not ideal with the amount of traffic, everyone heading off to work and what not. What’s the name of the book you are reading? I have been looking to pick out a new book about Nebraska for some time now, often at times I’ll pack up a book in the Summer, ride off in some random direction to find a spot to stop and read. :)

      I’m reading “My Antonia” by Willa Cather. I’d not heard of her but found the book in a nearby neighborhood “book exchange” book case in front of someone’s house. I guess she is a famous author.

      I’m really glad you liked the post! Talking and discussing fear can be, may I say – tedious and self serving – at times … So, I tried to frame the discussion related to food. ;)
      It all goes back and ties into the question at the beginning: “What would you do if fear was removed the equation?”
      May your heart be filled with happiness this afternoon – Take care!
