A few years ago, I faced my fear of heights and traversed a four-story-high ropes course with my son. I felt like I was trying to walk on shifting sand.
Everything went fine until we reached a planked bridge that wobbled back and forth, and I made a critical mistake: I looked down. At this exact moment my firstborn looked back and me and yelled, “Don’t look down, Mom!” Yep, too late.
Although it took me a moment to regain my composure, I relearned a life lesson that day. When we focus on the moving objects around us, our footing gets wobbly and uncertain. But when we keep our eyes fixed on the path in front of us, we can move forward with confidence.
Life feels a little like shifting sand these days, doesn’t it? Today, I’m honored to be sharing some thoughts from my book Shift about how to exercise faith, even when it feels clumsy, over at my friend Joy William’s beautiful website. You can check out the interview right here….
