Thank you, Yan. 🙂

I find that knowing what I’m afraid of is far more difficult than figuring out what step or leap I’m holding myself back from taking. After all, don’t we need to figure out what step we’re subconsciously avoiding before we can recognize any fears we may have associated with that step?

When I saw Ananda take her first steps without making a big deal about it, just doing it because she was ready and that was the next step in her growth, made me realize that I too have many ‘next steps’ that I’m simply not even facing because I haven’t accepted that I’m ready to face them.
