SCARY RISK OR COMFORT ZONE?

She said, "Well, what do you think is easier? To try something new and challenging, or to return to the known, the comfortable, the manageable?"

She said exactly what I was thinking. I don't want to settle for easy, though. I've done it too many times. I don't want to repeat the same old script. I know how that goes. Novelty, please!

I'm taking the risks- even though I might stumble and fall and get up again and be slow to advance. At least I'm moving towards breaking the comfort zone boundaries. I might move jerkily and unelegantly at first, until I learn this new rhythm. But I'll continue moving, unstopped by the scary, motivated by the new. I don't want to be stuck in the same old place anymore. Enough of that.

Healthy plunges are part of my current diet.

Hay que aprender de la vida, aprovechar todas esas lecciones que nos da. A veces nos hacemos los ciegos, y caemos otra vez! Maldecimos la piedra en el camino pero en realidad son bendiciones! Son oportunidades de crecimiento. Lo que pasa es que somos tercos, hay que cambiar, atreverse a hacerlo diferente, ver las cosas con otro punto de vista es muy importante.

lo mejor de todo es siempre decir la verdad, no necesariamente lo que pase. quizas haga un post de eso.

pero, definitely, hay que cambiar y seguir adelante! wise words, my friend.
