Fearless focus

Become so wrapped up in something that you forget to be afraid.....that's what fearless focus to me.

We hear it in the voice of a hero interviewed at an accident scene. The reporter asks; 'but weren't you afraid?' Weren't they afraid of the flames, the car wreck, the steep terrain? The answer is always similar; 'no, i just did what anyone would do in the same situation. I didn't have time to be afraid or even to think.

This kind of focus doesn't need crisis to exist. There are many other moments that are not life-or-death scenarios, SUCH AS FACING A DEADLINE, A DAUNTING CREATIVE TASK, OR A COMPLEX RELATIONSHIP.

We can tap into a focus so strong that fear no longer clouds our judgment.
I hope in future, choose to focus wholly on this task or relationship so that we no longer have the space to fret over fears.

To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else. It's easy to fill our lives with mundane and pretty urgency's.
Make time for life-filled activities first. It is pragmatic? Honestly, not always. A few to-do list item may get lost in the shuffle.
The adjustment may be awkward, but our life becomes richer, our mind more alert, and we are happier as we complete our other task.

Releasing all our concerns, we take this moment to reflect in wonder and gratitude - TO LIVE.
