A yoga student looked me dead in the eye and asked, “How do you become fearless enough to do headstand?”
And, this can be applied to anything in life we fear. How do we let go of fear and express our life’s joy?
On one hand, it does take a certain amount of willingness to try. To trust that everything will turn out ok one way or the other. Due in no small part to the way my mom raised us, which was to be very independent, I have a bit of an adventuresome spirit anyway. I see newness as fun.
On the other hand, once you’ve tried and succeeded at something, it gives you the courage to let go of fear and try again, or try something new once having had good results.
Life is an adventure! Step outside the patterns you have set and try something new. You may just like it!
If you would like assistance, please don’t hesitate to ask.
