Facing our fears, looking them in the eye, seeing and acknowledging them as truth, and choosing to walk forward in those fears. There is a deep bravery there.
This morning I am sitting in Costa Rica, listening to the ocean, breathing a little deeper and watching the sky get a little bit brighter. A couple of days ago the folks who wanted to go on an adventure all loaded up into a shuttle to head towards a zip line company in the area. When we got there, we loaded into an open air truck and headed up a mountain to experience 13 zip lines over the Costa Rican canopy.
For some it was just a fun and beautiful experience…personally, while I love zip lining, I have no fear of heights and it does not take extra coaxing to jump off that ledge. However, for others in our group it was not just a fun experience, it was also a real facing of fears. It was a willingness to step off a ledge when that ledge terrifies you, and fly through the sky on your own.
And that is a beautiful thing to experience, my friends.
There are times in life when we have to look our fears in the eye, when we have to face those fears head on, when we have to step off that ledge even though it terrifies us. It isn’t easy, nor should it be, but I think when we are willing to take a step off that ledge, we open ourselves up to more opportunities to fly.
I hope you have an amazing week my friend, I am so grateful for you.
