Hello there ~
First of all, wow. Today isn’t even over yet and we’ve got the highest hits we’ve had since the second day of this blog. Over 200! THANKYOU!
And we have officially past 3,000 hits [a bit late…it happened a few hours ago] And I don’t trust the “Who’s online” widget, but it says 8.
This place is booming and I see a great future for it ;]
I’m sure you all remember my perseverance post.
On the recent wilderness survival camp I embarked on a few weeks ago, we faced our fears head on.
Abseiling down a cliff face, hiking in the middle of nowhere for hours, swimming in ice cold water at 7 am, being lost in the wilderness [that’s another story].
We were constantly being faced with life changing experiences.
At times we didn’t want to face our fears; we were content with being deathly afraid of heights or terrified of bugs.
The instructors shared something very powerful the morning of the abseiling.
Think of two tree branches. One is young and soft but bent. The other is old and hard, and also bent.
Which would be easier to make straight? The young one or the old one?
The young one.
We are like the branches. When we are young, it is easier to mould us and take away fears and taking away the bent part of us, making us “straight”.
As we get older, it gets harder to do so and harder to confront our fears.
Remember that when you are faced with challenges.
You will grow if you face them head-on and will never regret it.
