A lot of times, we encounter situations that require us to move beyond our comfort zone and TRY something unusual, something which intimidates us or something whose outcome we fear. Last evening, Sept. 27, 2018, I did something I had so firmly decided against ever doing it again! While the outcome of my fantastic experiment wasn’t as hilarious as expected and it really got me upset for the rest of the evening, I woke up with a big wide smile today morning, since I had chosen courage over fear. I was happy that if I look back to this day, I will not have any regrets of not taking the chance. I am happy that I will not have to live with the possibility of a ‘what if’. We miss a lot of opportunities just because we never tried. Isn’t it better to try and fail than not to try at all?
Embarrassment lasts a moment, regrets last a lifetime.
I guess it’s okay not to be okay at times. Facing our fears and failing miserably can hurt real bad. Rejections can be heartbreaking. But that’s how you learn and grow. Eventually, you will have one more story to tell your grandkids someday and laugh about with your friends, right?
Be comfortable with being uncomfortable
