And Never Stop Dancing
Fear – of change, of intimacy, of loss, of the unknown – has become a corrosive influence in modern life, eroding our ability to think clearly and make good decisions. Exploited for power by politicians and for money by the media, fear has become embedded in the way we think about our lives. Overcoming fear though the exercise of courage, says Gordon Livingston, constitutes the most difficult struggle we face.
“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
