YOUR WELLNESS TOOLBOX 2021
DAY 78 / 365
FRIDAY FEELS LIKE... STEPPING OUT THE COMFORT ZONE!
Yesterday I was walking with Swifty (husband) and Ginger through some woods and we came to a T-ree junction (see what I did there!!). We had a choice about which path to take.
The options were:
PATH A (to the right) - quite clear, not very muddy, we know exactly where it leads to, looks shorter than the other path, been down there before. Easy route and we know where it will take us. The known path.
PATH B (to the left) - more muddy bath than muddy path, not been down there before, not quite sure where it ends. Looks more challenging. May need to turn back if a dead end. The unknown path.
Which one did we take?
Answer: PATH B
We took a risk.
We went on an adventure to see where a path we didn’t know would lead us.
This led us to discover not one but several new paths we did not know existed.
We had fun as our boots squelched in the mud.
There were more T-ree junction decisions en-route.
We ended up in a field we didn’t know existed even though we have walked in this area many times.
We walked further and explored more.
We made new discoveries.
It has opened our minds to exploring further next time.
Most importantly, we had a good time.
As humans we often stick to the same path because it is easy and we know it, we are comfortable with it.
Yet when we take a risk, take a different path, the one full of unknowns and uncertainties, outside of our comfort zones, with no guarantees, it can actually lead us to so many new things and opportunities. It can lead us to many good times.
What path will you choose today?
