For someone who refuses to live in fear, you sure are afraid a lot...”
 says my Inner Critic…..

Now, I’ve worked with my Inner Critics long enough to know not to take this at face value. No, it’s not proof that  I am a fraud. Actually it’s an affirmation that I am on the right path, living my dreams and being of service to the world.

We truly do teach what we need to learn. It could be no other way.
Yes, I feel afraid a lot. The choice I make is to not to LIVE in  fear.

Enjoy this rare peek you into one of my art journals for a poem/painting/art-journal/video dear to my heart:

I Refuse to Life In Fear

Here are the words:

I Refuse to Live in FEAR
by Katherine Torrini

I refuse to live in fear.

Fear’s only goal
is to survive.
I choose instead
to be alive!

I choose to risk
I choose to fail
I choose to fly!

I would sooner
live my life
in danger than
live my life afraid.

I choose to wear my dreams
for all the world to see
I choose to bare my soul
to show you all of me

I decry the lie
that fear can
keep you safe.

In fact, I renounce
my faith in fear.
I choose instead
to put my faith in love.

I choose to
open up my heart
and let you in again
–even if that means
we’re torn apart.

I choose to risk my life
to live the life that’s MINE.

I refuse to live in FEAR
I choose to live my life ALIVE!­­­
