I live for the moments that can't be put into words.
Do you ever find that there are a couple times of the year that always seem to bring change? September is a month that tends to usher in transitions for me...this year appears to be no exception. An unexpected opportunity has come up.
Since 2015, I've attempted to live a personal policy of saying "yes!" to new opportunities, and to have the faith to take those risks. While a side of me can be very impulsive and spontaneous, I also have a side that craves the security of the familiar. Once I shake that off, I'm always happy I did.
I often speak to others about the importance of stretching beyond your comfort zone - I try to live this in my own life - but sometimes when faced with it, I just don't want to. Yet, I strongly feel that big risks can yield big rewards. It may sound cliché, but I've only regretted the chances I haven't taken... particularly upon discovering I've become a dervish in a vortex of my own complacency.
Opportunity should be met with open arms, but when I feel this reluctance, I know it's time to take that leap of faith. It makes me realize I'm probably holding onto the past too tightly and it's time to let go. I'm not sure what's in store, but that's the fun part!
