Are we Defending our Lives or Living it Joyfully?

Here is a clip of one of my favorite movies, Defending Your Life by Albert Brooks. This is a "comedy" but is really quite a deep movie that is often passed over.
I've seen the movie at least a dozen times and it speaks to me each time.


Albert Brooks dies and is sent to judgment city in the afterlife. He has to view
periods in his life when he felt fear and wasn't able to defend himself
or make changes that would help him work through his fears.

How many of us are too afraid to try new things because we're afraid and
need to feel "safe" where we are? How many of us are in jobs we don't
like because we are afraid to follow our dreams? How many of us are in
relationships that are more of a struggle than fun or loving because
we're "used" to it and we are afraid of the unknown?

So what are you changing or not changing because you're comfortable and don't want to take a chance and follow your heart's desire? Are you wishing you could change something in your life so you can produce your dreams, or are you sitting there too afraid to take a chance? Let's open up a dialogue so we can help each other grow
with joy and expectations instead of wallowing in our fears. Believe me I
know fears as this has been one of my issues I took on when I agreed to
come into this lifetime. I'm finally learning to release them.

If you need help with this I am available to help you get to know yourself better through an astrology, tarot, psychic, love and destiny card reading. Your Angels will give you messages too.

I think a lot of people fear to "make a change" - or worse yet feel like they are trapped without any real options.

I hope you are well.
