Today I had the opportunity to make the easy decision, so I didn’t.
I had to ask someone something very important that involved spending part of the day alongside them,
so I figured I’d practice being brave.
Pick the person that makes me feel the most comfortable?
Or pick the person who’s kind of scary, not as welcoming, and hard to read?
I picked the latter.
And it actually turned out great.
We didn’t become “best pals” and not too much changed,
but it forced to me step it up, put on my confident guise even though I felt anything but, and learn how to be myself—even when I felt awkward and out of place.
Even if it hadn’t turned out the best—I’m pretty sure I would have been happy I made myself do it regardless.
That’s what happens you leap.
You’re just glad you did it.
So what I learned from that tiny deciding moment, and the moments of fear that followed?
While cuddling up in a ball on the couch seems pretty much appealing all of the time—
get out from under the covers every once in a while.
It’s good to be comfortable.
But remember, too much of anything is never good.
And cabin fever is no fun.
The best part is,
whatever you choose to conquer will be another lesson in itself.
You know what they say—
why don’t you get out of the house every once in a while?
The fresh air might be good for you.
And a little breeze always feels good.
