"When you play it too safe, you're taking the biggest risk of your life... Time is the only wealth we're given." -- Barbara Sher
creatures of habit, of patterns. Habits make
our lives comfortable -- they help us feel
safe. They can also become traps, where our
routines cause us to lose sight of the
infinite options available to us.
What aspects of your life have become routine? Where might you risk a little to explore new avenues that may bring rewards?
It takes effort to change. What do you most want to change in your life? Make a list of what you can do to start the process. Try journaling, perhaps. Read books. Take a course. Find a mentor. Seek out support.
How will you commit time to make it happen? When are you going to start? Your life is passing quickly!
Connect with the edge, the unknown, of your experience. Allow this pull towards unexplored territory to take you to new dimensions of yourself. Allow life to touch you in new ways for this is how we truly live life. Do some outrageous dreaming! Then do something completely different today.
"A great block to nourishment of the soul is distrust. We don't trust ourselves, so we stay rooted in the easy and convenient. We eliminate as much pain as we can from our lives and end up painted into a corner we call safety. Safety is the most unsafe spiritual path you can take. Safety keeps you numb and dead. People are caught by surprise when it is time to die. They have allowed themselves to live so little." Stephen Levine
