Recently I have accepted a job in my field that is a challenge. It is an opportunity for me to grow and get out of my box a little. Still, I feel a wave of apprehension and fear bearing down on me. Its more of a nervous excitement mixed with other feelings. :?

What I am wondering is, what does zen tell us about how to deal with these feelings? I personally feel that I am holding back these emotions from taking full control of me. I would imagine that we are really suppose to accept that these feelings are natural and temporary. Is it that we are better off to let them wash over us but not control us or try to force them back to the depths from which they have come? This would seem logical but its easier said then done of course. Does anyone have knowledge they could share? :mrgreen:
