get out of your comfort zone
Every day I see David push himself a little bit, try something new or take a risk. Yesterday, at my in-laws house, he was playing in the living room. When I came in from the kitchen, this is how I found him. I couldn't stop laughing--and of course, I had to grab my camera! He's been putting one foot up on the table once in a while, but this time he put both feet up and straddled himself between the couch and coffee table. He thought it was so cool!
I can't help think about how I get so comfortable and just want to stay in that place. Lately, I've been trying to push myself to risk more. It doesn't have to be skydiving (right, Erika?!) It could be approaching a new store with my jewelry or making a new friend. But It's HARD! It's so much eaiser to play it safe. But it's so much more FUN to take on a challenge. And it's okay to fail. That's the great part.
So, thanks David for reminding me to take risks. What is one way you can get out of your comfort zone?
Tomorrow I am going to post some pics of some fun, new BEADED jewelry--stay tuned!
