i love this anais nin quote, “life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”
it’s true, life really does expand with courage. when we move in the presence of fear, more possibilities open up for us. often times, what we thought would be scary is not so bad. we might as well enjoy and trust the process. to live a life limited by doubt and fear is a disservice to the self. it leads to unhappiness and a shrunken life. courage gives us strength and a sense of accomplishment. so be brave. be bold. be happy.
