A decade or so ago I learned how to windsurf. The first thing the teacher (Bob) taught me was actually not how to windsurf!
Bob showed me if I must land on my face, there’s a safe way to land on my face. Ditto if I were to land on my side or my toosh.
After all, I’d know that no matter what might happen, I would have the ability to fall down safely.
Think about it. When you know in your heart that no matter what happens, you’re the type of person who knows how to land safely, then you’re more likely to take more soul-nourishing risks and have more fun.
When you release your worst fears onto paper they often disappear into the air. Pffft! Suddenly your fears don’t feel as scary any more.
In fact, I believe sometimes we need to talk about something – not to get help (or sympathy) – but just to kill its power by allowing the truth of things to hit the air.
