Back when my husband was my boyfriend and we were both licking our wounds from bruised hearts – we would remind each other again and again, “Lean in.” (This was before this was a hot button couple of words and a superselling book…)
For us it meant – Lean into our fear. Lean into each other. Lean into our hope. Lean into our belief. Lean in.
Because this place, though frightening, is really fertile ground. It’s a place where you can throw in a couple of seeds and it will bear fruit. What kind of fruit may surprise you…but trust me, it will bear fruit.
There’s a bunch of new stuff on my plate lately that scares me…and that makes me super uncomfortable. Who doesn’t like to hang out in safety? But I KNOW from all of my experiences leaning in, that these experiences will bear me fruit beyond my imaginings.
Think on it…what are you putting off? What are you avoiding? What makes you nervous? What do you want to do, but are too afraid to try?
Lean in. You got this. Trust. There’s fruit in abundance.
