It was around 10pm on a Tuesday when my 9 year came out of his room completely distressed, worried that he didn’t do his homework right. He had been in bed for an hour already and the worry had him in a frantic state of mind.
Last night while watching “How I Met Your Mother” I heard a great quote.
It reminded me of being a kid and jumping at the opportunity of facing a fear. When I was little, that fear was climbing 10 feet higher on the oak tree when I had already reached the point of being scared. It was standing up to bullies everyday in middle school knowing the outcome may not be in my favor. It was launching off a skateboard ramp that was higher than my comfort level. It was asking out a girl who was way out of my league.
