I am learning a lot about taking risks lately. I’m learning that most everything you start is a little awkward, yucky and difficult at the beginning. Whether it’s making friends in a new city, trying something new or just putting yourself out there there is a point when you want to turn and run and stop trying because public displays of learning and risks are difficult! I’m learning that when I trust others and learn from their mentorship that it usually turns out well and is worth it. I hope I can keep living a life where I continue to go outside of my comfort zone in small ways so that I become better at laughing at my mistakes, smiling and shaking it off when it doesn’t work. I’m also learning that taking those little risks and helping someone else can make a huge difference when we least expect it. Check out this TED talk to see what I mean. I know that for me, these guys helping me learn something new made my day better! Do something today that scares you a little – maybe, like me, you’ll have a chance to do something you always wanted to and live in the joy of the moment!
