For many of us it can be a very scary thing to break from the known, the comfort, and the patterns (of thought and action) so entrenched they seem to be a part of us.
This break from the known is The Daring Path.
While choosing to take The Daring Path can be scary it’s also a chance for a more alive, joyful, and vibrantly free life.
