"The goal is not to avoid the fears associated with an adventurous life. The goal is to be so busy living a good one, you hardly notice them." [Paul S. Boynton]
It's been said that "FEAR" is simply an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real. Stepping out of our comfort zone and reaching into the unknown, the uncomfortable, and the unexpected compels us to reach within ourselves for strength and resiliency we never knew existed. Keep busy living an "adventurous" and "busy" life, and your fears will become mere signposts along the way.
