YOUR LIFE A-Z: DARE
JONATHAN LIVINGSTON SEAGULL KEPT FLYING HIGHER
DARE to take Care of You today. DARE to be yourself today. DARE to get out of your comfort zone and take a risk that is so “not you.” If you are shy, DARE to talk to a stranger today. If you are quiet, DARE to speak your opinion today. If you are a couch potato, DARE to go for a very long walk. Take water. DARE to risk rejection today. DARE to ask for what you want and need. DARE is to defined as a challenge that proves courage. Anytime we break out of our rut, we DARE to change. Change is uncomfortable but just like a new pair of jeans when the fit is good they feel so good. When we DARE ourselves by challenging ourselves to be different and out of our rut then after the initial discomfort, exhilaration and excitement from the challenge sets in. What are three things that you can DARE yourself to do? Just like the first questions in this post, do something completely out of the ordinary for you. Life is to be experienced, not watched from the sidelines. It is common for all of us to get into a rut and then it feels so comfortable to know that every Saturday is chores first, grocery shopping next, order in pizza and a movie in the evening. But really what quality does that provide week in and week out? Yes, housework must be done but switch it out so that you can use some of your energy to DARE to be different.
