Trying New Things ~ #UpbeatAuthors

The only limits are the ones you place on yourself.

Do you like to try new things? Does the idea of stepping outside of your comfort zone terrify you? I fall somewhere in between. I like to try new things, but I also enjoy the ease of the familiar. I'm usually content to live quietly and take pleasure in the things I've always done. Except, without trying new things we can't change, and without change, we cease to grow. I'd rather live without fear of the unknown than meander through it without ever experiencing the wonders of the unexpected. All of the best things in my life have happened because I tried something new, even if getting to them took a little extra courage.

Think of something amazing that has happened to you because you dared to try something new. Would you change the outcome or do it all over again for the same result?
