The next time you're feeling tired, question yourself, ask your body what it wants to say. The smallest new thought could reveal deeply hidden truths. Rather than dismiss these new ideas, include them.
Think about everything you are missing out on because of what you are avoiding. How much richer could your life become if you didn't feel the need to hide from your fears? What would you be able to do? Supposing you were not fearful, think how great your life would be.
For most of us, avoidance becomes a way of life. We barricade ourselves behind an invisible barrier and don't venture out because beyond the wall is pain. This safe space Phil and I call the "comfort zone."
On my way to the studio I notice the path is partly blocked by an overgrown shrub, so I put the pliers down, go to the tool shed to get hedge clippers and trim back the intrusive plant. I go in and sit at my desk to prepare for the class.
