I don't want to dwell on the fact that I'm a bit stressed right now,
*lots* going on.
But it has got me thinking about doing things that are out of my comfort zone.
Doing things that scare me.
I would say that I play on the safe side of life most times.
I like to stay within the confines of my comfort zone.
As I get older I am less afraid of some things
and more afraid of other things.
I am less afraid of what people think of me.
I just don't care as much.
I mean, I DO care, just not as much.
And I like the way that feels.
I am more afraid of taking chances and doing things that are potentially dangerous.
I have children that I want to see grow up.
And I use the term *dangerous* quite loosely.
Like flying in an airplane.
Every time I go away without my kids I get a little more freaky.
Stuff like that.
I really don't want to wake up when I'm 80 and regret not doing things when I was younger.
Fear is a crappy thing.
It really does paralyze me sometimes.
I am planning something right now that is
out of my comfort zone.
To most people it would be no big deal.
People do it every day.
But for me it is a bit of a big deal.
Once it's all finalized, I will share.
You'll probably laugh that I am nervous about it at all.
So from now until then, I probably won't sleep.
I'm scared but I'm excited too.
And I'll try to keep in mind that...

What have you done that was out of your comfort zone?
Do you force yourself to 'do something once a day that scares you'?
