In life it the most important lessons that we need to learn are often the ones we feel the strongest desire to teach.
Face that which makes you uncomfortable and become comfortable. Look into the eyes of your own fear and learn how to smile, and laugh, and dance, and love. Being comfortable in fear is a skill the best of us learn.
I am afraid of commuting to London, for fear of what I will become. I expect that this will not be the case. I am uncomfortable doing the work I am afraid will be boring. I expect that like everything it will be the attitude with which it is approached that determines the level of interest.
Do not fight that which keeps showing up in your life, let it in, and revel in what is teaching you. Here endeth the lesson!
