Today I acknowledge and befriend the emotion of fear. I recognize that fear has played a very important role in the survivor of my ancestors. Fear made them more alert to possible dangers, which kept them along to procreate and play a part in my birth. I use fear as a warning light on my dashboard, alerting my mind to possible hazard or pitfalls ahead. I recognize fear as my ally, not my enemy.
