Eleanor Roosevelt’s quote is all about empowerment.  So many of us either consciously, or unconsciously, decide to play it safe.  We don’t want to take chances.  We don’t want to risk disappointment or failure.  But when we play it safe, we miss so much!  We miss opportunities for growth and adventure, among other things.

We tend to stay with what’s familiar, even when it no longer makes us happy.  Is there something that you’ve turned your back on, because it seemed too scary?  When we push our comfort zone, we open ourselves up to new, exciting possibilities.   It might be an exotic trip, a change in careers, a return to school, a move to a different part of the country or world, etc.

So when the opportunity presents itself, stretch out and grab it!  You might have some happy surprises.

Until next time,
