"Take risks not to escape life, but to prevent life from escaping." - Unknown
Risk taking is scary, but so is being stuck in the same place for too long. I've always loved this quote, as I have often seen it associated with skydiving. Taking a flying leap out of an airplane (which I have done ten times) was one of the great experiences of my life that illustrated the importance of not letting life escape.
Risks don't have to be as wild as skydiving, but this quote can be a great reminder that all the magic happens outside of our comfort zones. Being in a place of comfort is not a bad thing, but to really feel alive, we sometimes have to take those risks.
Do something a little out of your comfort zone (or routine) this week! Life will thank you.
