I think I got it wrong for many years.....somehow I convinced myself that the goal of life was to be "comfortable" and free of as much risk and fear as possible.
I really believed that if I eliminated everything from my life that made me uneasy, or scared or nervous, that was somehow a good thing. Where in the world did that come from??
It's true....I was a late bloomer in every possible way -- so naturally, I was late figuring this one out too. Little did I know that eliminating most of the risks in life = a pretty boring life. Oh, it's safe...and comfortable....but it's BORING. That was one of the most important lessons that I learned a few years back from the "c" word -- (cancer.) Yep....that was a valuable lesson. Life is short. I was put on this planet for a purpose. It's best to get on with it -- time is a wasting!
So that's where the title of my new blog comes from -- because now.....I've learned that the best things in my life come when I'm extremely "uncomfortable!"
