"When fear makes your choices for you, no security measures on earth will keep the things you dread from finding you. But if you can avoid avoidance - if you can choose to embrace experiences out of passion, enthusiasm, and a readiness to feel whatever arises - then nothing, nothing in all this dangerous world, can keep you from being safe." Martha Beck
Think about what readiness actually is. You can think of it as a state of being fully prepared for something or...willingness to do something. Way too often we get stuck with the first one and wait until we are fully prepared. It surely starts there but it's not the end.
