Look at the picture above... What do you think?
"That's crazy!", "Oh, I would never do that", "How could she not be afraid", etc.
You know, the funny thing about children is that they have not yet been contaminated with the disease called fear.
As you get older, even little risks or dangers seem to paralyze you at times when you need to take action. But why be afraid of a challenge? Fear will never decrease the size of the challenge, it will only make it look scarier.
So remember this, when there is something big and scary approaching you (be it a big decision, change of environment, starting over again, leaving friends behind, etc), the best thing you can do is FACE IT. And face it quick. What you may discover, is that the bark was a lot bigger than the bite. Meaning, it looked much worst than it was.
