Facing Fear with Fabio

Horses have never been my thing. 

No one who knows me knows that. 

While I was in the Great Smoky Mountains I leaned into the fear. 

Turns out horses are pretty cool. My horse, Fabio, especially. 

And, horseback riding is an exciting way to enjoy and appreciate Mother Nature. 

You know, fear can hold us back from truly living. 

I’m learning that accepting and facing fear is an opportunity for growth. 

Fear can be a power for good. 

I felt so empowered when I knew I wasn’t afraid anymore. 

I never expected to enjoy the ride. 

My fear will never disappear completely, but facing it has helped me manage it. 

It was worth the risk and has given me a superpower I can use in other areas of my life. 

I wonder, is there a fear you’re ready to move through?
