In the last episode of my podcast, I discussed how to hold on when life is tough. That’s when life is challenging you.
But what about when life isn’t so challenging… where life is copacetic? Just cruising.
It’s my observation that we work hard to keep life flat. We work hard to keep things smooth. Cold out? Turn on the heater. Hot out? Turn on the A/C. Keep things even… even-keeled. Flat.
We spend LOTS of energy to save the energy of dealing witb challenges, big or small.
But does that help (or harm) us? Does it keep us safe or make us fragile?
What if taking on small challenges actually gets us better prepared for bigger challenges? What if making choices to expand into life helps us deal with life encroaching upon us?
One of my “things” is to find little challenges for myself… new things to try, new activities to do, new tastes or sounds to take in, and new ways to try life.
How about you? What challenges are you taking on right now?
