Fear

April 1, 2019

For years, I was curious about yoga, but too intimidated to step foot into a studio. I didn’t think I was “yoga” enough. I didn’t own anything with an om symbol or Lululemon brand, and I didn’t look the part. Looking back now, I realize how wrong I was. Thankfully, the yoga studio in my area did a session after school for teachers at the high school where I worked. After that, I was hooked. I recruited a friend to come with me, and after initially going to the studio and realizing it was a safe, non-judgmental space, I was hooked!

Looking back now, fear was the only thing that kept me away from discovering a practice that changed my perspective and changed my life. I wonder how many other amazing things I’ve missed out on, or am missing out on, because of fear?

What fears are keeping you from trying something new or making a change in your life?
