I walked into a yoga retail shop today and I saw a large sign that said…
Do One Thing That Scares You Every Day This Year!
Just reading that bold request – to jump out of my comfort zone each and every day – scared me. The entire concept sounded absolutely exhausting.
But here I sit, writing my first blog post for 2010, and I’m eager and excited to take on the challenge of doing one thing every day that scares me. I think my biggest challenge will simply be remembering to add this to my daily routine.
I’m not going to judge the things that scare me. I’m going to be aware of them and observe them and honor them.
Today, the one thing I did that scared me was talk about nursing homes and long term insurance needs for myself and family members. Nursing homes scared me when I was a young child when I went to visit my grandparents. Earlier this week, however, I had an amazing experience at a nursing home when I visited my 90 year cousin at her’s when I was in Michigan visiting family.
To be honest though, nursing homes still scare me. I hugged my parents (who are 84 years old and 72 years old) tonight and told them they had one job to do – to stay healthy.
Cheers to a healthy and happy new year and to doing one thing that scares you every day this year!
