    Life itself is a challenge and we certainly shouldn’t be scared of taking control of our lives and getting on with living in a way that makes us happy.

      Thanks, you’re right, but how many of us actually do that? I agree with you that the key is doing what makes us happy.

    I’ve come to a point in my life where I feel like I’m floating above fear or any heinous evil thing, even though the smells and signs of trouble are everywhere. To give power to failure or credence to uncertainty, will only cause my anxiety to worsen or even spread to other people.

    So I’ve decided to live my life fearlessly and with human decency, regardless.

      Thanks Tim. Yes, however hard or whatever internal fear we have, I also believe it’s important we life our life with human decency, particularly towards other people.

      Holding on to and being positive, brings about more positive outcomes and more internal positive thoughts.

    Life is certainly a challenge; every day is a new fire to tackle. We just put them in a queue, the most important gets first place.

    Not letting things get to us is something to strive for. Never give up cause God always provides.

      Thanks Maria. Yes you’re right. Everyday is a new challenge to tackle, some challenges are easier than others; the resolutions to those challenges more obvious.

      I equate it to parenting. Being a parent doesn’t come with a manual and yet we’re expected to get the parenting thing right and first time. Life isn’t easy and with a lot of challenges along the way, I can see why we get caught out.

      But this quote is so true. The ones we know we can take on, the more comfortable we are with the challenge; the more in control we will be.
