When new challenges and opportunities show up in our lives, we may diagnose ourselves as feeling scared when what we really
feel is excited. Often we have not been taught how to welcome the thrill of a new opportunity, and so we opt to back off,
indulging our anxiety instead of awakening our courage. One way to inspire ourselves to embrace the opportunities that
come our way is to look more deeply into our feelings and see that butterflies in our stomach or a rapidly beating heart
are not necessarily a sign that we are afraid. Those very same feelings can be translated as excitement, curiosity,
passion, and even love.
