I believe it was Eleanor Roosevelt who said, “Do something that scares you everyday.” Or maybe I just saw it on a LuLu Lemon shopping bag.
As this photo above suggests, that’s where the magic happens.
I’m all for adventure (perhaps you’ve read the K and P adventure blog posts), and I love exploring new things, relishing unfamiliar experiences.
But do I truly do things that scare me? Not so much.
This summer I tackled the canopy walk in a rainforest in Africa. I loved it, but to be honest, even though I’m not totally thrilled with heights, I can’t say it scared me.

Over the past week I decided to take some steps outside of my comfort zone. Admittedly they are only baby steps right now, and I’ll save the details until I see where it begins to take me. Perhaps these actions will conjure up some magic dust for my future, and even if it doesn’t, Mrs. Roosevelt would be proud.
