RUNderful Wednesday

The middle of the week is here, WOOHOO!!!! We've made it this far guys, so SMILE (even if the track is rained out like it is today, again). Le sigh. 

YOU are responsible for your own happiness; no one else can do it for you. 😊😊 I love reading funny or inspirational things, whatever makes me smile or think about something in a different way. My pick of the week is: 

Step out of your comfort zone.

I am guilty of embracing comfort zones throughout my life. From elementary all the way through most of high school I loved to live in whatever comfort zone I was in at the time. Doing that made me feel safe, and I had less anxiety doing what I had always done, but it never got me anywhere. My dreams stayed as they were - just dreams - and nowhere in my mind did I see them as actually becoming a reality. Acting on a dream takes stepping out of your comfort zone. At the very end of high school and through college I decided to change that. I started speaking up more and doing things that before I had been too scared to do, and it paid off. I began racing BMX, joined different groups in college, traveled and went out of my way to make new friends. It made me less afraid to try new things. Those things forced me to step outside of what was safe for me, and after a while I actually enjoyed pushing my limits regularly and trying out new things. Big changes are still daunting, but change is a good thing! My goal now is to continue to embrace change and see where it gets me.
