Are you living in fear of judgement?
Published on February 13, 2020

For years I have been closed minded, out of fear of judgement.  I allowed a small window to let things in, but they were always filtered by what was safe. A good friend called me out on that.  In my fear of judgement I was judgmental. In my fear, I was intolerant. Anger grew in me.   And I was becoming someone I didn’t like.  

This dear friend changed my life. She risked our friendship.  She exposed that darkness and forced me to look at myself.  What I found was chronic stress and anxiety.  It was affecting my body, mind, spirit and emotion.  I was having issues with blood pressure, heart things, I lost my faith and I was losing myself in self pity, sadness and depression.  By the grace of God, literally, I got up and began the battle of my life.  I became attentive and receptive.

I started noticing what affected me negatively: negative people, negative situations, like political rantings on facebook, the news, negative self perceptions, negative self talk, lies I believed, like “I’m not good enough” and “If you don’t think you can, don’t try!”  Key word: NEGATIVE.

Fast forward to today.  I have learned to embrace alone time. That’s when I come face to face with my God and myself. 

I have put myself first.  Not selfishly, but have made my well being a priority. 


I choose to let go of that which brings me down: biased news, petty conversation, judgmental or controlling people, negative self talk, and self limiting behaviors.

I surround myself with music, color, quality people, healthy foods, fresh air and sunshine, even if it’s behind the clouds.  Through these choices I give myself gratitude and joy.  I have eliminated the negativity.  I choose to allow myself  high frequency vibrations that give me vitality.

Vitality, joy and gratitude. These are my gifts to give.

I am a woman of faith. I am here because of that faith. I won’t preach, but I will speak that faith through what I do. Everything I do runs through that filter of faith.

I believe in what I do. The more I learn, the more I know that this is powerful and true. The other day I was “listening” and I heard “Be a voice in the wilderness. Prepare the way of the Lord”.
