This month I am definitely taking on the mantra - Do 1 Thing A Day That Scares You. I am settling into my new home in Portland, OR - making new connections, new friends, finding my new coffee shop, favorite bar and restaurant and of course, my favorite runs!
Each day is another opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone and discover, or rediscover, my strength, fortitude and openness. I've had great experiences so far but not everyone is going to be my champion and help me out. It's scary to ask for help and be vulnerable when meeting new people. I haven't been in that situation for years and I feel like a kid on the first day of high school all over again. Even after a not so great experience, I'm reminded that I AM on the right path because I'm doing what I want and what makes me happy.
That's what is most important. Create goals, write them down and then go after them. You will take some wrong turns and some of the moves to get you to your goals might be scary; do them anyways. Challenge yourself, put yourself out there and rewards will find you. I'm experiencing it everyday. Happy Motivational Monday - now get out there and do 1 thing that scares you!
