Yesterday morning I went surfing.
I was sitting pretty far out, things were fairly calm, until I noticed a dark, blurry presence in the water next to me. Oh shit,.. I hate that feeling…
Could it be a shark? Is it my time to go?
I moved very slowly. Leaning down on my board ready to paddle back to shore.
As I moved the darkness got closer to me. As if it was mimicking me. Then I realized…
It was my own shadow! I was scared of myself!
What an idiot. 🙂
It’s a funny story, but also a cool little reminder to myself. Sometimes I invent reasons to be scared. It’s counterproductive, and limits my vision for opportunities.
Instead, I need to practice self-assurance. I want to be subconsciously confident and scared of little.
Have a great Sunday all!
