It is true that I have been thinking a lot about this lately. I have set some personal goals to push myself out of my comfort zone to allow for new growth and change.
Fear can be such a barrier. It can stop us from experiencing the blessings that are meant for us. I have been reflecting on how I have allowed that in my life.
It is so easy for me to play it safe. In some ways, I have done that all my life. I don’t want to live that way anymore. Yes, it is still important to exercise wisdom and have healthy boundaries. But, I think it is possible to do that and also push myself out of my comfort zone.
This blog is part of that. It makes me feel vulnerable. I am singing again. That makes me feel vulnerable. I am dating again. That makes me feel vulnerable. And yet, those things also spark a sense of joy, fun, possibility, and creativity. I feel alive. I feel hope. I believe for the future.
Taking chances, within healthy boundaries, is what life is all about.
