Why choose love By The Nourishing Space

Why choose love….

It has been quite some time since my last Nourishing Space post…..and in all honesty I have sat down at my computer many times to write and each time, I have been hit with a wave of fear…. My ego has gotten the better of me, and self doubt began to rear its ugly head….

I literally caught myself having a conversation in my head….it went something like this…’what will your readers think’…’why has it taken you so long to get back to your blog’….’why can’t you fit this in?’…..I let this play out for weeks and instead of showing up to my blog….I’d  let my ego…or as my friend Mel would say my ‘mean girl’ take over and stop me from doing something I love.

You can apply this analogy to any scenario in life….be it a job, hobby, relationships, personal goal, fitness, weight loss…..How many times have you talked yourself out of doing something that you want to do, something that makes you happy, or that would help set you on a path to creating the life you want…simply because you were scared…. Or worse still because you were worried about what others might think…..

What other people think of you is none of your business. Make it your business and you’ll spend the rest of your life being offended…Deepak Chopra

When I thought back on this….I realised the only person that was loosing out on this was ME…..It was more than just not showing up to my blog….is was the fact that I’d let my ego get the better of me…I’d stopped myself from experiencing what makes me happy….MY JOY….and I’d settled for living from fear instead of love….

You see when we operate from a place of fear, every decision we make is then driven by fear….We talk ourselves into accepting a situation….and we settle for things the way they are….We’ve all done this….we’ve all experienced the negative, fear based conversations….’I’ll never make enough money’, ‘I’ll be happy when….’, ‘I’ll never be successful…prettier…skinnier….taller….thiner etc’….In all of this negative self talk….ego OVERDRIVE…..You must know that this is not your truth….this is yo

ur ego, and the egos only job is to keep us in fear and stop us from experiencing love.

When we choose to operate from a place of love, our truth….you’ll be amazed at how much love you will create and attract into your life. I’m talking about an abundance of love in all areas….not just the fleeting idea of romantic love that you get from someone else, but deep, lasting and energising love that comes from deep within. The kind that inspires you, that encourages you to keep going through the tough times and brings you to operate at a higher level.

If you choose love, then you will choose a path that inspires your life.

When we trust the process of life…..when we choose love over fear…..our inner voice (who annoyingly always knows exactly what you need) will always steer us on the right path and the answers will always present themselves. So be honest with yourself….what do you  want to be doing that you’re not because you’re scared? What would bring you joy? Make your heart sing? Why aren’t you doing it? What have you got to loose?

    I love this post Penny, and well done on kicking fear in the ass and getting back on board! Keep up the amazing work, the blog is looking great! I can say I’ve had a few of these limiting thoughts myself too recently, and am very grateful for blogs like yours for giving me plenty of inspiration to finally do what gives me joy 🙂
