We all confront fear at one time or another. It’s the very nature of life in this universe. Whenever you find yourself looking into fear’s fathomless eyes, it can be helpful to know that others have been there before. If you’re lucky, you can look to the teachers you admire most (Brene Brown, Stephen King, and Pema Chodron are a few of mine) and find some solace in the fact that they, too, have summoned their courage and met fear.
It’s easy to forget this sense of solace, though, so I like to remind myself whenever I can. The three computer backgrounds below are reminders. For you, for me, for everyone. We’re not alone in fear, and I aim to keep reminding us all of that until the stars go dim.
