It has been my tendency to want to want the fear to go away before I do the walking.
I don’t feel vulnerable.
In that waiting, I find myself on the sidelines of my life, watching not living. I mistake courage for stepping into a perfect scenario where I am protected from the possible negative outcome.
So I’ve learned it is a daily choice to step out despite the fear because it is in the stepping that the courage meets me, not before I put the foot out.
We can mistake comfortable for “good,” and it is often the uncomfortable that leads to the growth and freedom we have wished for all along.
