The first time I went up into the flight deck and the captain turned around to say hello to me, my stomach churned and my face got hot. Why was he not concentrating on flying the plane?! Before that day I didn’t realize that planes are on auto pilot most of the time. The captain or first officers is responsible for flying the plane during take off, landing, and occasionally during turbulence, but other than that the plane mostly flies itself. Once I realized this was totally normal and has been happening for quite some time now, my stomach softened and my fear subsided. This is a small example of how fear can affect us, however it is important to take a look at how more long term feelings of fear can affect us in the long run. Take a look at some of these notes taken from a recent podcast by @Tarabrach .
Ask your fear : what have I been most unwilling to feel? What part of me is most asking for attention? .
It’s helpful to name feelings when things are unpleasant. It’s powerful because it shifts the brain around by noticing what you’re feeling. You’re actually activating the prefrontal cortex (which means more rational thinking, empathy, mindfulness) and you quiet down the limbic system (which is responsible for “fight or flight”). .
Fear X Resistance = Suffering
Fear X Loving Embodied Presence = Freedom

Vibes😌🎧 Meanwhile, my mom and I are decorating a Christmas tree🎄 (this year we are actually super early cos usually we do it two days before 😂🤷🏼♀️🙈)
Today is finally the day where I stop wishing and start doing 💃 I’m so excited to launch forward with a part of my life that has been developing for so, so, so many years! The feelings are nothing short of exciting and energizing — and I’m so thankful for all the love and supportive words that have been sent my way. Especially during this last year when this dream started to become more and more real ✨🙌💛 #samanthaclairedesign#socialsweat
Full-time traveler and blogger, @brooklyntropicali will be showing us around the south of Spain today — check out our stories to see the most beautiful corners in Andalucia, Spain. "I spent almost a month in Andalucia, bouncing around the cities and the countryside. I found so much beautiful architecture, delicious tapas, and vibrant culture. I already can't wait to return! Many people traveling to Spain spend most of their time in Barcelona or Madrid, but I think that Andalucia is worth a trip all to itself!"

Zu Hause wohl fühlen und ankommen und wahrlich einfach nur sein. Ach, ich mag unser zu Hause. Auch wenn es oft chaotisch aussieht und nicht immer ordentlich ist - so ist es doch der Ort, an dem unsere zwei kleinen Herzen wohnen.

Breakfast time with @victorialucaa 🍊
Every day is special, we like to be aware and and enjoy every part of it.
How do you start your day in the right way?
Living in such a fast paced, competitive world, it’s getting harder and harder to find authenticity, respect and integrity. Take a moment today to stop and think about what you value most. It’s not enough to just express what you value but more so about applying those morals and values to everyday life- that is what ultimately makes this world a better place to live in for all. Share with us what you value most below and why 🙏🏼 Dame Traveler @jess.wandering#dametraveler#dametravelercostarica
