"Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.”
Living your truth and growing requires risk. And, not all risks pan out the way you hope or imagine. Sometimes those risks temporarily take you to places that are darker than the life you were living before. They may even require you to let go of what you think you need or what once brought you joy in order for you to grow.
However, with each risk comes the opportunity to discover something about yourself—a hidden talent, a new passion, personal insight or it simply shows you how courageous and strong you are-things that you need to know about yourself. There are never guarantees that you will experience more joy than before, but the only way to discover what’s possible is to take a chance, make a change, and find out.
Today, consciously take a risk. Step out of your comfort zone and make a conscious effort to see your life and its challenges in a whole new way. The truth is that no matter how much you try to avoid risk and hide from pain, it will still find you, even if it is just in the form of regret. It’s far better to weigh each risk for yourself and decide which risks are right for you to take than to always let the fear of risks force you to take the risk of doing nothing.Only by taking a risk will you be able to change your life and move forward towards the future that you have been dreaming of.
Just for today,I do something different. I am willing to step out of my comfort zone and experience life in a whole new way. I will not allow noise, chatter or setbacks to distract me. I will allow courage, commitment, patience and grace to guide me. I feel safe in the rhythm and flow of my every changing life. All is truly well in my world. An so it is.
