Expanding our limits.
I came across a quote in Men's Health magazine I wanted to share. Thanks to my big mouth, I'm not resting at home like I intended. We are now 140 miles or so away. We were on the bike and I said we could be in Bend by suppertime. Katie called my bluff. After a trip to a store for a couple of necessities, I'm sitting at a desk in a hotel lobby and paying for the privilege so this will be short. The full story will come later!
Here's the quote:
"Growth demands a temporary surrender of security." Gail Sheehy
I've written about having to get out of our comfort level in order to gain new skills. Exploring new territory can be somewhat disconcerting. Fact is, there's no other way to do it. Once having gained new skills we find it was worth fighting the fear.
Big leaps of faith aren't usually required. It's just a matter of stepping a little bit farther than we're used to. Then doing it again. There's an Oriental proverb which says,
"The longest journey begins with a single step."
Expand that thought and we find that the entire journey is composed of single steps. One builds upon the other. Pleasant journeys!
Miles and smiles,
