Taking Risks

I’m not a big risk taker. I have my comfort zone, I know where the boundaries are, I know how far I can push myself before I begin to feel uncomfortable. All of that’s fine, however the things I want out of life lie somewhere beyond my comfort zone, so far away that I can’t even really see them. I’m still living my life as if I’m still a 16 year old fangirl who dreams of one day being this happy and high achieving person. But I’m 21 now. I should be working to be the person I want to be, not just constantly dreaming of a future without a real plan of how to get there.

With risk taking comes more fear and for me it’s mostly a fear of failure. I feel as though people are waiting to see what I do next and waiting for my inevitable failure. Another fear I have is change. I accept change and want change however the unknown absolutely terrifies me. That’s why I like to stay in my little bubble of comfort. But I know not all change is bad. Without change, summer wouldn’t become autumn  or winter and I’d never get to experience the cold, crisp mornings and feel the crunching leaves beneath my feet that I love so much.

I say the same thing every year but I know next year will be different, it has to be. I’m going to try to take more risks and do scary things that may just help me in the long run. That’s kind of the reason I started this blog. I have a couple of things planned for next year and I’m so excited for them.

I can’t wait to embrace my new found freedom and start living life on my own terms.
