When I first heard this week’s word I thought of music, but then i went and looked up the proper meaning of the word. To stop oneself from doing something. Just wow.
What if we refrained from giving into our fears? They walk with us through our days, whispering in our ears. Telling us all the ways things will go wrong. What if instead of listening we turned around, stared fear dead in the eyes and said, “Prove it.” Just what if!
Did you feel that? That’s freedom. Freedom to chase your dreams, to admit your feelings, to face your brave and slay it over and over agian. What if you spent your days chasing after your crazy enormous dreams instead of cowering to the fears that walk with you? Do you think they would still be as loud after a time, or would they be silenced by you stepping into your full potential?
Action Steps: What is one thing you are afraid of right now? You know what it is. It’s probably tugging at your mind right now. Do you have it? Now, what would silence that fear?

Enjoyed reading this. I had the opposite process. Thought of stopping first then remembered its use in poetry and music. Either way what a time to practice two kinds of refrain. Over at #42 on FMF.
