Watching my two year old scream, yell, laugh and uninhibitedly cavort these last few days inspired this month’s ezine article about how we let our natural spirit and creativity get caged by social pressures, limiting beliefs and the dulling rhythms of everyday life.
I recount one of my favorite martial arts stories about the time I watched a slight, shy little boy turn into a raging tiger in front of his whole school.
And I am curious if you have chained your own tiger up for any of the following reasons:
- We are told at an early age that our fire and passion are not “appropriate”
- We see others around us conforming to a “safe” life and we don’t want to stand out
- We tell ourselves lies to feel better
I offer some solutions in the full article here – check it out and let me know what you think. And as usual, add your own tips here!
