“Let us not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless when facing them.”
It isn’t a safe world out there. I choose to celebrate beauty, brightness, and hope. But of course the world has many dark corners and people. This editorial of Kerry Washington for The Edit May 2017 celebrates being fearless. So I started thinking about the concept of facing fears. I have (almost) two little ones now and want them to face the world courageously. While I live in a very safe place now with low crime, I know that my kids will still face dangers as they go through life. I can’t protect them forever. But I can teach them to be strong, smart, and fearless. It’s a worthy lesson for any of us to prepare ourselves and face our fears. So I hope that few dangers await you. But I also hope that you are fearless when you encounter them.
Have a lovely week!
