Don’t be a fainting goat


“Don’t let yourself be paralyzed by fear, which prevents so many people from living out their dreams.”

– Mark Fisher –

According to Wikipedia, “a myotonic goat, otherwise known as the fainting goat, is a domestic goat whose muscles freeze for roughly 10 seconds when the goat feels panic. Though painless, this generally results in the animal collapsing on its side.”

There are things that happen in life that startle us, scare or frighten us, but rather than freezing, being scared or feeling debilitated by fear, we can choose a different reaction if we so wish.

And even though it’s pretty funny to watch these goats fall over every time they get frightened or excited, I’d much rather be a regular goat. One that deals with life as it happens, and goes with the flow.

Sending you lots of love, hugs and light, Kat x x x
