It is sad where my thoughts have been lately: focusing too much on the outward appearance of things. Being too self-critical, too negative, too judgmental.
Fear is at the root of all these things. Fear of imperfections, fear of growing old; ultimately, fear of death. In Miguel Ruiz’s book, The Four Agreements, he says if only we can face the Angel of Death and live everyday as if it is our last, we can lose our fears and finally know peace and happiness.
Can you face your fears and focus on the positive?
