Moving Outside The Comfort Zone

Quotes and Notes #121, March 4, 2015

“Life always begins with one step outside your comfort zone.”–Shannon L. Alder

My son told me over the phone that his daughter—my beautiful granddaughter,Margot—would hold his hands and take steps, but when he let go of her hands, she would only sit down. I got a mental picture of this and then I grinned as I thought that soon she will take a step—a single step before sitting—and the next time she will take more steps, and then soon she will be running.

It’s that single step that moves one out of security and into risk. It’s that one step, every day, that we can take, if we wish, to find an adventure or to make our (or some one else’s) lives better. So take a chance. Believe in yourself. Look back at what you accomplished and smile about it.

Everything is going to be all right.
