We experienced life fully as we jumped off the high dive for the first time, chased butterflies while laughing hysterically and made best friends in an instant.
But something happened along the way.
We began to believe that we needed to conform, be responsible and live our lives in a certain way. We took on the single-minded focus of doing what we thought we were supposed to.
What happened to our sense of exploration and creativity?
It’s still there! It’s just waiting to be set free.
Trust that you can push beyond your comfort zone and embrace your curiosity and inquisitiveness. The fear that we feel as we do is only confirming that we’re doing something that matters. And isn’t that ultimately what we all want?
When we lose our fear of being wrong or being judged, we’re able move into a more meaningful life, one that’s filled with passion.
We do fail at times. We’re human. But isn’t that ultimately how we learn and grow and become stronger, better people?
That fear of being out of our comfort zone is simply part of the process. It’s how we relate to it that makes the difference. So embrace it. Know that it means you’re pushing the limits. Touch it and befriend it. Let it be the fuel that propels you forward rather that the stone that holds you in place.
Trust yourself. Listen to your heart. Laugh. Play. Explore.
And see the world as a child again.
