Scare Yourself

“If you don’t know learn how to be scared, you’ll never really learn how to be brave.” ― Simon Holt, The Devouring

I know myself well enough to recognize when I’m stuck or I missed the mark. Back in March when people were making quarantine goals I thought I’d do the same. And while I’m proud that I’ve unearthed silver linings, I feel like I didn’t do enough to scare myself.

As strange as it may sound, flipping the script, mixing up the message, and/or whatever you want to call scary change is the thing that makes me feel most alive and purposeful. I like being uncomfortable. So I’ve decided to do some stuff that scares me to my core. In the days to come I’ll reveal more, but I’m confident we could all use some fish out of water stories. What are you doing that’s brave?

How’s that question for a fall fika?
