I let go of my fears for the future.

I look forward to my future with hope and confidence. If the future brings joy, I welcome it. If it brings challenges, I know that I have the strength and fortitude to conquer them. As a result, I am free from fear.

If I am at the bottom of a curving stairway, I do not hesitate to take that first step just because I cannot see the top! When I get in my car to go someplace, I do not fear what I may encounter on my journey!

In the same way, I move forward with my life and take action to reach my goals even though I cannot see my entire journey ahead of time.

I avoid fretting over what is to come. Even now, with an intense political climate and a recession in full bloom, I can avoid worry. Instead, I seek solutions and focus on what I CAN DO to experience the life I desire.

One thing I can do is to live in the moment. When I am focused on this moment, there is no past or future. There is only now! I practice enjoying life moment by moment and relish the beauty that is all around me, just waiting for me to discover it!

My action plans to reach my goals are flexible. I know that challenges are a natural part of life and I am free to change my path from time to time. With this strategy, I can always be moving forward, even if I take a short detour.

Today, I choose to be carefree, put any worries in the past, and discover the beauty of this day.
