Lesson 90. Do one thing everyday that scares you.

We're all just a bit timid aren't we? We enjoy our safe little shells. We cling to the routines and the well knowns. We hide behind schedules and familiarities often to find we aren't really moving forward, just around comfortably. Have you ever considered that life takes risk?

This thought has been triggered by a card I have on my desk. It simply states "Do one thing everyday that scares you" and initially I thought "Good heavens Mother, why would you encourage such irrational frightful activity?" and then I realised that hallmark do have a wee bit of a point with this one. Comfortable is hardly living. Comfortable is simply accepting a state of mediocrity and to an extent laziness. We have to strive to be a little uncomfortable, not purely for the discomfort of course, but because comfort never taught anyone how to grow. Comfortable never gained anyone greatness. Go on, I very much dare you. Do one thing everyday that scares you.
