Important Fears

“In order to learn the most important lessons of life, one must each day surmount a fear”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


Got me there RWE. I don’t get it!

By and the large the most important lessons have come to me as a WOW! They creep up on you and change most everything at that point in time.

However, I can see the value of surmounting fear.   Most are constructs and the deconstruction that takes place leaves space to create or construct something more contemporary and/or closer to your needs
