Developing courage and confidence

If we choose to approach all of life mindfully, we can learn to trust and relax into anything that comes our way — even times of suffering, or anxiety, or stress.

Any experience that arises is an opportunity to learn non-attachment, to practice gentleness and mindful awareness, and to cultivate a spirit of trust and loving kindness toward ourselves.

Staying with whatever is happening, no matter how unpleasant, is how we build confidence.
