Talkin’ ‘Bout The Things They Woulda-Coulda-Shoulda Done…
But All Those Woulda-Coulda-Shouldas All Ran Away And Hid From One Little Did. Shel Silverstein
Talk is cheap ~ how many times have you heard that phrase? Probably more times than we’d like to hear it, right? Well, I’m learning that the hard way. I’ve been wanting to expand my life for awhile now. I’ve been floating and not really doing anything substantial with my life. I know, part of you may think that I’ve been really busy which I have and part of you may think that I’ve not done enough. Well, you are both right. But now things are about to change for me.
I am embracing change and facing some fears ~ and it’s not easy. It’s uncomfortable to step outside of your comfort zone. In fact, it’s darn scary. I feel like I have elephant-sized butterflies doing the samba in my stomach. That’s what happens when I get scared or nervous. Does that happen to you? It’s like I feel like I”m going to throw up ~ I get that nauseous ~ but lucky for me, I never actually throw up because it’s the one thing I hate to do. In fact, I hated it so much that I only threw up once during 6 months of chemotherapy when I was battling breast cancer! I can be a really determined and stubborn gal when needed. 🙂
Anyway, last week I mentioned the idea of IHU and many of you wondered what in the world I was talking about! Click here to read it!
IHU ~ Inner Hotshot University
I created it on the fly, the name just popped into my head! But I’m thinking that perhaps some of us could brush up and strengthen our inner hotshot and allow that sparkle to shine again in our lives! Embrace that uniqueness that is you! Be the light in the darkness ~ use our strengths and develop our weaknesses! Do what scares us and stretch out of our comfort zones!
Let those butterflies enjoy a mambo number without falling to pieces!
What do you think? I mean, we could sit here and talk all day long about the woulda-coulda-shoulda’s or we could try to find one thing that scares us and do it every week! Would you do it? How about if I double-dog dared you?
So my idea is that once a week, we post a challenge to ourselves to stretch out of our comfort zones. You can just comment below and tell us or even just commit to doing one thing if you don’t want to reveal what it is. But the key is that you must be honest and let us know if you did it by the next week! And if you did, how about sharing how it went? How you felt after you did it? What do you think? Is anyone interested? Perhaps we could cheer eachother on? Hold hands while we all jump off of the diving board into the crystal clear pool of life!
You have the power to Be the One That Did!
But wouldn’t it be fun to be the ONES that did?
Let me know if you’re up for the challenge!
We’ll start soon!
