Only two more Penguin Pointers in this series! Let’s get on with it and talk about Y.
Living in our safe space is a double edge sword of sorts. Who doesn’t want to feel safe? Who doesn’t enjoy the comfort of the known? I think we all do. Problem is, we can get stuck. We can feel stagnant. We can get bored or antsy and at time have a feeling of restlessness that we can’t even explain to ourselves.
I’m never going to be the kind of person who says Yes to everything offered up. I’m very comfortable at home in my flannel jammie pants watching Netflix or snuggled up with Vivi.
But even for someone like me…there are still so many opportunities to say yes. To expand my knowledge. To be curious and learn something new. To try to push the boundaries I’ve set up for myself. To expand on interests.
Getting out of our comfort zone and saying yes to new things is vital to our personal growth and truly the only way to continue that growth for our entire lives.
I’m not ready to sit down and claim to be the best me that I can be today…and I don’t think I ever will be…I hope not anyway. I hope that I live the rest of my life pushing myself to keep growing…and that all starts with saying Yes.
