One of my on-going lessons in life – and am reminded daily – is finding the courage to face my fears.

We can run, but there isn’t any place to hide. The dark shadow we think we lost by doing so, will always track you down. Always. Whether it’s in your dreams or a subtle reminder at the end of the day. It will not leave until it’s dealt with.

So, what can we do? We must summon the energy to turn and face it square on with courage and strength.

Most of the time, it’s not nearly as bad as we might have imagined. But, more importantly, it’s only then can we find the peace we’re looking for.
