What hurts more….walking slowly into a brick wall? Or running through it?
Pain cannot be avoided in life. Last year’s “peace perspective” was a lot of protecting myself from pain. But this year’s one little word of “chance” has been about leaving my safety net, and embracing that not everything will be peaceful.
I foresee plenty of discomfort in the next couple weeks/months. I’m re-learning how to be in a classroom, trying to adjust to “big city” living, and trying to keep different relationships strong throughout all the changes.
Here’s hoping I can embrace the change, the wild emotions, and find some joy in these fearful experiences.
What do you do when you’re scared? Do you shut down? Or do you pick up the pace?
