Feel the fear and do it anyway.

Much to the dismay of my mother, I've always been the one in the family to test the limits on what she would consider normal, safe behavior. 

My answer to her why has always been why not?

Change is scary, but so is regret. 

Today, life is good, but many of the blessings in my life have resulted from risk and a willingness to try. And with risk comes fear. 

No one likes to feel vulnerable or get hurt when things don't work out the way we intended, but what's the alternative?

My opinion? Feel the fear, and do it anyway. 

You don't have to conquer the world today. Start small. 

Not ready to run a marathon? Download and follow a couch to 5k app. Imperfect action is better than perfect inaction. 

Not ready to sell everything and explore the world? Venture away for the weekend or explore your own capital city. 

Want to enlarge your social circle? Try a meetup group around something that interests you or start one of your own.  

Not ready to Konmari your house? Clean out your junk drawer. 

Want to feel like you're making a difference? Pay it forward in your coffee line, donate your tidied closet leftovers, volunteer an hour for a cause that means something to you.  

You don't have to do everything, but everyone can do something. 

Every day is a new opportunity. What lights your fire? Do that.
