Butterflies of fear
ILLUSTRATION: How many of you have ever been frightened?
I remember my youth when I was very involved in sports. Whether it was football, track or baseball, I remember experiencing “butterflies” in my stomach before the game.
The interesting thing is that the only thing that got rid of those butterflies or the fear I was experiencing was to become involved in the very thing that frightened me. Getting in the game cured me of my fear. That first snap, or first pitch or first step on the track and the butterflies were gone.
