Embrace feeling scared

Just because something is scary doesn’t necessarily mean we should run from it… by empowering yourself you can truly start to unlock your potential.

Today I went on the intermediate forest climbing route with my 6 year old. When we reached the zip wire he turned into jelly. So we had a chat about how sometimes in life it’s important to embrace that scared feeling and turn it into super power! With a wet face and tears still rolling, he leapt and went for it… by the end of the course he’d completed 3 zip wires. I was hoping at the end he’d say that now he loves zip wires but no actually he’s still not keen BUT he did it and is smiling and most importantly feels braver than he did when he woke this morning.
