There have been countless times this past year when I have pushed myself out of my comfort zone. Some things are bigger, like the BHG challenge, finally doing our mudroom, driving hours away to meet a new blog friend, deciding to move to the Village. Some things will seem small and silly to you like finally casting fear aside to make a Christmas stocking, trying a new creative technique or after months of wanting a new blog banner, finally just trying to see if I could do it. Guess what? I did it and I love it.
The thing I need to remember is if I don't ever take a risk or try something new, I will fail every time. If I put myself out there I will fail some of the time and succeed some of the time too. But even when I fail, I will hold my head high because I know I tried. I didn't let fear get the best of me. That's a lesson I always want to remember.
