Do you feel like life’s a Ferris wheel? Moving slowing and going in circles. I’ve felt this way before and recently my wheel came to an abrupt stop. The jerk that your body experiences when you stop abruptly leaves your mind swimming with thoughts and makes it hard to think clearly. I felt like I was on the top of the ride, able to see all the beauty of God’s creation. But I was scared to death. I could hear my heart beating in my chest and it was getting louder by the second. I though in that moment I would lose myself, lose it all. Ironically enough as the sun, the ocean, and the beauty of the skyline surrounding me appeared, I started to feel an overwhelming sense of peace. In that moment I was flooded with fear that I would fall and afraid of how high I was. Yet through my tears my fear turned into gratitude. I had to experience fear in order to see and to be appreciate all the beauty surrounding me. It was a complete mind shift. I was released from fear and open to receive all of life’s endless possibilities.
