I Challenge You...

May 15, 2009

Every day, do something that scares you. It can be something simple, but something you'd normally avoid doing because you are afraid. The satisfaction you'll get from overcoming that fear will be worth it. Try that interesting dish you've always wondered about. It just might be your new favorite food.Get on that stage and sing. You know that it will be fun, but you worry about what others will think. They'll admire your courage, and you won't regret it. That one person you can't get out of your head? Maybe it's because they are supposed to be there. Tell them how you feel. Don't let fears take over your life.
Every day, make somebody's day. Give somebody an honest compliment. It's amazing how much a few simple words can mean to a person. Hold the door open for that lady with a child holding each of her hands. Skip your coffee and give your change to that homeless man. Random acts of kindness don't have to be extreme. Just take the time to show somebody that you care. I promise you, the feeling you'll get will be worth the extra step.
I'm guilty of forgetting these simple things on a daily basis, but I try to enforce them each and every day. Life is too short to let fears hold you back from doing the things that you want to do. Smiles are contagious, so make somebody smile and see how much it spreads. Life is what you make it. Make it good.
