This is a rather odd first post for my Chicago blog, but right now the reality of this big change in my life is hitting me. I'm excited, but I'm scared. I'm alone. My dad is back home and it's just me.
Everything I've ever wanted and everything I've ever been of afraid of are staying me in the face.
Today was an "I'm scared and can't handle this" day. I didn't fulfill one of the goals I had for this week. I chickened out. Retreated into my corner...something I'm learning how not to do. I guess it's fitting my blog about my life up until this point is called "around my corner". Now, every day, I'm reaching out to see what's beyond safe borders. Already, some days are better than others. It's a struggle to always be up for the task. One step at a time. Successes along with failures.
So, as I embark on this life-changing journey, here are a few ideas I've come up with for things I can do when all I want to do is hide in a corner of fear:
Listen to uplifting music
Get OUT of bed
ANSWER my phone
CALL a friend
Read a good book
Find 1 reason to be happy
Pick 1 thing that's scary and do it anyway
Make a green smoothie
Take a walk
Put on lipstick
Try a new place to eat
Find something to take a cool picture of
Read my scriptures
Get on my KNEES and pray
Remember, one day is just one day...if I fail there is always tomorrow
