Absolutely. Sometimes it’s hard to push ourselves out of our comfort zones, but it’s the only way to grow. We all get stuck in our ruts sometimes, and it’s not always easy to step out and try something new.
Yes, I’m definitely a rut-sticking kind of person. I have to really force myself to stretch beyond my boundaries and do new things. But it’s always worth it.
You seem to have adventure and daring on your mind. Wonder if you are opening up a bit to do what scares you…
Actually, I put all of these quotes together, but never used them, for work last year. So, I resurrected them for my blog. But I do think it’s interesting that you make that comment, and it seems to fit. I believe that God often speaks to us in the themes that present themselves to our notice at certain points in our lives.
Even more to the point in this case, I believe He speaks through other people. I was just having doubts about something I want to pursue, but am unsure of. I am experiencing great feelings of inadequacy and of being generally ill-prepared, and possibly stupid for even thinking that I should make such an attempt at all – or waste time on any of the effort involved to get it started.
So your comment hits home in many ways. Especially since I haven’t paid as much attention to those quotes as you might think, having created the templates more than a year ago and prepared the posts well in advance, too.
Thank you for being honest in making your observation, Patricia. Clearly, it was something I needed to hear.
