Can you believe we are just almost half way through 2010??? Time has flown by in a blur of ups, downs, happies and sads. Such is life! It's senseless to fight time or the balance of things. And with that, I am peacefully content with where I am in life. I still have so many questions, but I love the questions. I still have so many contradictions, but I love them too. If the true value of the journey is in the ride, then I'm going to enjoy the ride for all of the traffic jams and breakdowns that come with it. Because life is amazing, scary, bittersweet and mysterious. Life is a blessing that we spend our whole lives trying to understand and appreciate. But, as humans, we don't know what we've got until it's gone.

Today, take a moment to reflect on how far you've come. You may not be where you want to be, but be thankful that you are not where you were. Don't worry about how long it takes you, because remember, there is no race, no finish line and no first place trophy to this thing called life. I read a passage recently that was powerful - "Discover your deeper nature, confront it, and find the courage to live according to it." That pretty much captures what life is about to me.

So, here I am reflecting on the year so far and what I'm doing with my life to discover my deeper nature. Likewise, how am I hindering myself? I encourage you to ask yourself these questions as well as come up with your own.

* I have been embracing concepts that make sense to me and feel true for me, without always putting those concepts into action. Am I still afraid of change? Why?

* I am different than anyone else I know. This should make me feel special and unique, not outcast and unaccepted. Why am I still so afraid of rejection? How does this block my creativity?

* You can't have reward without risk or discovery without vulnerability. Why am I still afraid to fail and still afraid to succeed?

* I know the secret to peace and beauty is to believe in yourself and be your own biggest fan. Am I still seeking validation and approval? Why???

Do you see a theme here? I do. My nemesis - Fear. By facing these questions, breaking habits and by doing the things I fear, I increase my sense of power and I overcome fear.

Now you try. Ask yourself the questions and don't be afraid of the answers.

As for me, I'm off to face my nemesis.
