New Experiences

You may (or may not) be wondering why I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been having a series of new experiences over the past week. Good experiences, for the most part, but definitely pulling me out of my comfort zone.

This is a good thing. And it’s been extremely uncomfortable at times. But the most interesting part of this, aside from the fact that I’ve gained useful experience, is that I’m finding myself thinking “out of the box” in areas completely unrelated to what I’ve been doing.

This is the advantage of doing things we’re not comfortable doing. Our comfort zone expands and we create new possibilities for ourselves in ways we can’t even predict.

Here’s hoping all of you have some lovely new experiences this week. I’ve to run because my daughter is coming over for assistance with some essays she needs to write.

Sending blessings and safe and gentle ((((((hugs))))))),

I'm doing something right now that was very much a new experience for me three years ago. I'm cooking for 40 people. Tonight's main course is chicken mole. Ole!

Rising Rainbow and Keepers, Thank you. My daughter got her essays done in time and I think they came out quite well. Now she has to wait months to hear if she gets the fellowship.

Jumping in Puddles, You should see me smiling all the time with these new experiences!

Marj, Whoa!!! I am soooo impressed!

Mother Wintermoon, Thank you.

New experiences can be scary, but I agree that they're very good for us!
