Yes, I have been blessed. But some of these blessings have resulted from risk. And with risk comes fear.
Much to the dismay of my mother, I've always been the one to test the limits on what she would consider normal behavior.
Whether it be skydiving, shark cage diving, dog sledding, embarking on trans-Atlantic solo travel, or even tackling major weight loss . . . fear may have always been there.
But so what?
What's the alternative, I would ask?
At times, fear of unknown can be a tough obstacle to overcome. But life is so precious, so short . . .why live with what ifs?
Yes, it's scary. But so is regret.
Venture away for the weekend. Explore your capital city. Get a passport. Roam as much as time and money allows. Try a new gym class, a cooking class, a dance class, or try to learn a new language.
Every day is a new opportunity. Make it yours.
