I wrote this a year ago. Giddy up!!
I am fine, not bad, not good, fine. I will be OK. Even in the midst of todays challenges, I will be OK. If I die tomorrow, I will be OK. If anyone else dies tomorrow, I will be Ok. If my house burns down, I will be OK. If one of my employees quit, if I fail to connect or satisfy a family in our business for whatever reason, If I fail as a mentor or boss, I will be OK. If I fail as a husband, father or friend, I will be OK. (Insert your ideas here!)
I will be OK because I don’t want or choose the other options, and I will learn.
While my thoughts are a little dark today and I don’t naturally want any of the above things to happen, they will to someone. And while many of life’s changes are scary to me they will also challenge and be scary to others I know. I also recognize any major changes in my life will change me in different ways. I will be forced out, or have to step out of my comfort zone into areas that make me stretch, take risks, and possibly even enter areas with unknown consequences and results.
First, I will practice stretching outside of my comfort zone (ex. blogging) When I’m comfortable living in the stretch zone, I will practice in the risk zone (ex. writing a book). When I’m comfortable living in the risk zone, I will move out into the unknown zone (TBD) My goal is to be so comfortable at living in the unknown area (my new comfort zone) that there would be nothing that could concern, scare of worry me. Join me!!
”Blessings on your journey”
