Jumpin out of the comfort zone!

If at first you don’t succeed, skydiving is not for you. heehe  I wouldn't recommend crawling up tall Pines, or Cedar Trees either... but that is just me... but a cruise to see the wild life might be entertaining!

OK, so skydiving is not for everyone, even those who do tend to succeed at most things, first shot out of the gate. 

However... skydiving may be just the ticket... sounds pretty cool to me, and you can't have a skydiving experience 2nd... I mean you gotta start with the first right? 
 Oh my I am confusing myself now!!! Maybe it's having two kids around ready to jump and run, the fear factor of dancing in the rain, running wide open dodging balls... that zoom past the head in the pool or water guns aimed at the head or the frisbee that manages to come amazingly close to the ear in flight that rattles the ability to think clearly.

But let’s just this once think of something way out of our comfort zone that we have always thought we’d like to do. MAYBE, it's falling straight down the waterfalls of Disney or riding a ride that takes you into the darkness of 3D experiences, or a trip to never-land...

                           What would it be?

The Bellagio fountains maybe?

Maybe you already know what it is but have never really given it serious thought.
Turning the fantasy into a plan. Why not?
We all do this.
We think something might be fun, or an amazing accomplishment we would love to make our own, but then we give it no credence. What’s up with that?
                                    Is it fear?
Again, what would we do if we knew no fear? 

 Even if our idea is a bit scary, is it something we really would like to do or is it the kind of thought that we nurse with the belief behind it that if we were someone else we would do it for sure.

I challenge each of us to honor the fantasy.
 The challenge is to turn the niggling idea into reality now while we can.

Is it a social conscience thing like joining the peace corps in our middle age, or maybe a physical adventure like riding a donkey down the Grand Canyon.
White water rafting sound inviting?
A solo trip to Europe to wander around for awhile? 

Perhaps a trip to the beach just for the sound of the ocean and doing the shell stoop dance.... or sitting on a bench just to watch , really really watch PEOPLE in all their glory shop!
Only you know what it might be.
Maybe you have not even explored the possibilities.
                          It’s all possible.
The only limitations in life are ...
OUR imagination...

"If I had my life to live over, I'd dare to make more mistakes next time. I'd relax, I'd limber up. I would be sillier than I've been this trip. I would take fewer things seriously, take more chances, take more trips. I'd climb more mountains, and swim more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and fewer vegetables. I would perhaps have more actual troubles, but I'd have fewer imaginary ones. You see, I'm one of those people who lived seriously, sanely, hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I've had my moments, and if I had it to do over again, I'd have more of them. I've been one of those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot-water bottle, a raincoat, and a parachute. If I had to do it again, I would travel lighter than this trip. If I had my life to live over, I would start going barefoot earlier in the spring, and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances, I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies". {Anonymous}

Yes, there may be a thousand obstacles.
There always are.
But, really, is there something you just know would enrich your life?
                                    Make it possible.
Make it a priority. 
                        MAKE YOU A PRIORITY!
Once you identify the experience you can set about making it your own.
Make a plan and set it in motion. Not everything involves going somewhere, spending money to do it. Maybe you have always wanted to learn a second language, or read every book ever written by a favored author or a new author. Ever wanted bake amazing pies, or master French cooking?
                            You get the idea.
Why do we deny ourselves these experiences. Our ability to make it happen is limited only by our heart’s true desire.
So if we really want to, we can.
Somehow we can make it happen.
Remember us? We are amazing!!!

What have you wanted to do?
Too many dreams go unfulfilled because we preface them with “someday”.

Ah, we are back to the knowledge that we have only this moment in time.

Someday will take care of itself, but today, we can make the decision to move our dream plan forward.
Will it take sacrifice, maybe.
Can we save up if it is a costly plan? Yes.

If we really want it, we can.
Not everything is about money. Well alright.. most things involve $$$.
Will we have to do some fancy footwork? Perhaps tie ourselves in a knot to pull it off. Most likely. But we can do it. Whatever “it” is.

So let’s make the shift form “someday I’d like to______, to the promise that we will speak the words that set the thought into motion.

Identify the activity, organize your thoughts around it. What must I do to see it to fruition. What plan must I put in place?

What are the barriers to success?
How shall I address them and move forward?

Life is short.
Set yourself free from the fear.
 It’s all impossible if we let it be.
Is your life what you imagined it would be, could be?
If not, you are the only one preventing yourself from bringing about the change you desire.

So let’s go for the gusto.

Practice confidence in your ability to accomplish your secret heart’s desire.
                    Start today, June 06, 2013
This day holds the possibility of making it happen.
Yes, you may need support from the people in your life that depend on you for their comforts. Not everyone will get on board.
There are lots of Nay Sayers out there.
Is anyone out there that should stop you from your pursuit?
Will you allow others to diminish your own personal power?
This is, just this once, about you.
Your desire, your dream.
Go for it.  Remember, life is NOT a dress rehearsal...

Carpe Diem my friends.
You just might be surprised with the outcome.

I believe... there's a winner in YOU. Now CLICK:

Did you find your way back ???

Walk in beauty
