Take Emotional Risks

 

Open your heart and arms to new people and experiences. While it might seem safer to remain curled up in your cocoon, it is so much more richly rewarding to reach beyond your comfort zone. Recall that each person you now know and love was once a stranger to you. Can you imagine your life without them? Was it worth the risk to take that leap of faith to welcome them in?

    Such wise counsel, and so timely. I think I will take the emotional risk that I had contemplated today and which, until now, I was reluctant to take.
    I will reach out to an intriguingly endearing spirit and thus open the possibility of further enriching my own life.

    Tony:
    How wonderful that you are extending in courage (comes from the French word couer, which means heart) to that ‘intriguingly endearing spirit’ whoever that is. Enjoy the enrichment:)
    Blissings,
