A quote about Risks

Living with fear stops us taking risks, and if you don’t go out on the branch, you’re never going to get the best fruit.

Blog post for January 30, 2013

Today I called are young man that helped me in Arizona. It came out of my mouth that there was a lot on my journey that I enjoyed in memory, but maybe not so much at the time.

He asked why. I had to think on this. During some really fantastic times on the journey I allowed myself to worry to much about the future, instead of living in the wonderful moments I had.

I also realized that I have done a lot of that with my whole life. Always worrying about tomorrow and about this and about that and what if this happens and what if that doesn’t happen.

Then one day it will be over. I need to start living more in the moment and enjoying every wonderful thing about my life.

A ship is safe in the harbor, but that is not why they were built.

I was not built for a harbor either.

The “Comfort Zone”. #ENDALZ

A lot of folks talk about getting out of your comfort zone. It is not comfortable there. When you are there sometimes you wonder why you chose to put yourself there.

Sometimes when you get back into your comfort zone you realize how good it may have felt to be out of your comfort zone, for just a bit, and the next time it probably will be a little easier.

I have been out of mine a lot for the last couple of years and they have been some of the best years of my life.

Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.
