    #MicroblogMonday 21—Beginner’s Mind

    “A beginner’s mind is curious and open to life’s possibilities…and most likely will be uncomfortable at first.” Uncomfortable for several reasons. We are not yet proficient when we begin something new. Our confidence may have left the room as we struggle with self-doubt, our perfectionism, and our inner critic who whispers about how crazy we are to even be doing the thing. These are all normal. Feel the fear and just do it. Action is an antidote to fear. Bring your sense of humor, your compassion for yourself, and above all the willingness to feel uncomfortable.
