"A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on her own wings."
This quote (author unknown) has really been resonating with me lately. There are so many things in life to be afraid of. Slipping on ice, getting sick, the death of a loved one... the list is endless. We can worry and worry about what could happen until we drive ourselves completely crazy.
What if, instead of trying to convince ourselves that bad things won't happen, we learn to trust our ability to cope when they do?
