I was inspired to write this post after a beautiful walk this morning. I enjoy walking, it really helps for me to clear my mind, reflect, and brainstorm. As I was walking today,I thought about the risks that I took to get to where I am today. I could not be happier, although I am over 800 miles from home and I miss my family and friends very much, it is all part of the new chapter in my book of life! I think it is so important to step out of your comfort zone sometimes and "take a risk!"
I stepped out of my comfort zone and took a risk when I moved to a new place, created this website, tried a different therapy approach with some of the kids that I work with in the schools, and the list goes on...Risks do not have to be extreme, they can be as simple as trying something you never have done before, opening your mind up to trying new approaches, or whatever task is outside of your comfort zone.
Listen to your intuition, follow that gut feeling you get, open yourself up to new opportunities, go into a new opportunity with an open mind and do not be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone and take a risk. The next chapter of your book is waiting to be filled with all of the experiences, knowledge, and wisdom that you gain from "taking risks."
Have a great weekend!! Continue to pray and keep Japan in your thoughts,my prayers go out to all families, victims, and survivors affected by this tragedy!
"Progress always involves risks. You can't steal second base and keep your foot on first." ~Frederick B. Wilcox~
I wanted to share this table that I used when I was job searching. Initially I started off and I just was writing information down on a notepad whenever I would contact a company of interest. Then one day my dad said, "You should make some type of table, so that you have everything all in one place." So that is what I did, I created a chart so that I could have all of the companies of interest, this helped me to compare the benefits in order to come to a decision of the job that fit me best. Any headings can be used to go at the top, it just depends on what you are looking for and what is important to you when finding the job that fits you best! Thanks Dad!
