Today I was able to spend some time communing with nature. I made a point of overcoming a deep rooted fear by going into the water chest deep. It’s liberating to face your fears head on and decide to take the necessary steps to master them. Though I was terrified inside, I was also reveling in a sense of freedom, and yes, I shouted it into the vast expanse of water around me. I am grateful I have enough strength to trust myself and know that chances and risks can lead to liberation. I believe that all things can be championed.
