Lean Into It

Did you know that if you’re afraid of getting kicked by a cow or horse, you need to actually close the distance between you? The closer you are, the less likely you are to get hurt.

Similarly, if you run across fear or resistance, lean into it. See if you can’t get a little more intimate with it.

Sometimes, leaning into it makes it disappear. Sometimes, it gives you valuable information, sometimes, (like with cows) at least if you are kicked, the kick hasn’t got a lot of force behind it. Whereas hanging out where you think you’re safe means that the hoof has a lot of momentum behind it. And hurts more. And catches you off-guard. And did I mention you thought you were safe?

No downside here. But you do have to be brave enough to do the foolhardy thing. And lean into it.
