When I was in primary school, I had an art teacher who had one rule in her class that was never allowed to be broken. She never allowed us to erase anything. Whatever we sketched, painted or drew was to be worked with, even if it started out as a mistake. She simply used to say: “Turn that mistake into a happy mistake.” This troubled me because my art skills are as good as my Latin, so mistakes were found on every page! But, I learned to adapt and started figuring out ways of turning those mistakes into happy mistakes.
No matter how you look at it, no matter how you choose to live your life – fear will ALWAYS occupy some part of your life. You might be able to keep it at arms length, but you will always be aware of it. Fear will always be taunting at your heels like a yapping dog wanting to pinch at your ankles. There is no escaping it, because when faced with life’s challenges, there will always be something hindering you from succeeding, breaking through, being the best person you could possibly be, at the task at hand.
The choice however is always the same. Will I allow this fear to influence my life and cripple me, will I allow it to determine my future, or will I choose faith and rise above my limitations, my restrictions, my insecurities and personal ‘handicaps’?
