I am sure you have heard the saying before “try one thing a day that scares you”. By following this guidance it can help us to move beyond our comfort zone to a point where we can grow and do things we didn’t know we could before. Challenging ourselves and pushing our limits gives us a chance to change. Trying to do one thing a day that scares you is a way to do that.
When faced with a fear we can cower away from it or forge through it. Being fearless doesn’t necessarily mean you have no fear, but that you act in spite of that fear.
In this photo I am doing a handstand on a 5 ft high rock wall. Although I am not afraid of handstands, I was nervous to be trying them so high up with limited space for error. It was exhilarating and forced me to stay very focused on my control while upside down. It was a mindful practice that challenged me physically and mentally.
Live Light Practice:
Do one thing today that scares you. It can be anything from talking to a stranger to trying a cartwheel! Have fun with it and see how you feel after.
