Have you ever done something that scares you? Maybe this is more of a question for when you’re both older, but I thought I would bring it up today. Sometimes we have to face our fears in order to move forward in life. Mama was talking about this with me the other day. Here’s part of the story: Daddy tried to take me on a solo walk the other day. You were both with mama on some sort of a car ride adventure experience and I was left to my own devices for guarding the home front.
Daddy tried to take me on my own walk adventure but something held me back from allowing myself to leave the house. Well, truth be told, we made it out of the garage and part of the way down the driveway, but I had a hard time convincing myself to keep walking. There’s just something inside of me that feels scared to leave the house without our whole pack altogether. I’m not sure what I can say or do to convince myself to shift, but I’ll keep trying the walks with mama and daddy sans my brothers, every now and then. I absolutely love walks, but it’s challenging for me to shift gears and know that it’s ok to let go. I’ll just keep on trekking and one day, maybe I’ll truly face that fear and let the scare stay at home so I can venture forth solo again!
