One Day My Soul Just Opened Up by Iyanla Vanzant

Fear mastered me. It dictated my movements and responses in any given situation. Fear has disguised itself as what I could not do, did not have, and did not have time to do, and as what others would not let me do. I have disguised fear as the need to be somewhere else, doing something else, not knowing how to do something, and not needing to do something. I set a table in my life for fear to become a gluttonous and insatiable master.
This quote stirs something within me, how many times do we hold back, because of fear. This is a struggle for adults, teens and children. Anxiety can also be described as fear. Our journey is to realign our children to be in a position where they can master their master. Not an easy task, but you must agree a necessary one.
