Sometimes I think I have to be thankful for the things that scare me a little. I try to keep a pretty open mind most of the time, but I’m also grateful to have a little internal ‘warning system’ to keep me from flying too far off the deep end. Sometimes I learn that there was nothing to fear, so long as I’ve got a plan. Sometimes I find it’s just best if I turn and go another direction entirely. Either way, that moment of pause is my friend.
