So I was thinking about my 5 year old self and what it was that she wanted.
She wanted to not be scared.
Isn't it amazing how fear can permeate into your very core at such a young age?
Isn't it the saddest thing to behold...a child that is scared?
I have been slowly, surely and indefinitely challenging myself to do things that scare me.
Traveling by myself. Air planes. Saying yes to being published in an upcoming book. Saying yes to teaching online courses. Saying yes to the life I WANT.
What if I changed the story a bit.
What if.... just if.... my 5 year old self wanted the fear to transform her life in just such a way?
Who would I be without the fear?
In the dark we appreciate the light...right? And in the light it illuminates the dark spaces and corners of our mind and our sacred hearts..where we once thought were monsters- are actually just pillars of strength that we've surrounded ourselves with.
What a relief.
Always such clarity in the dawn of things.
Always such beauty in that soft light.
I encourage you to look at what scares you. Relate to it. Talk to it. Make friends with it and let it do what it's soul purpose is.
To Transform you.
And that is all.
So I was thinking....maybe...just maybe...my 5 year old self is safe at last.
Be good to yourselves Lion Hearts.
Look at you go!
