As author Anaïs Nin said, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
How would it be to step out of your comfort zone? Science tells us that our brains are wired to be risk averse. It’s a human survival mechanism. The status quo that we know often feels safer than the unknown – no matter how great the opportunity may be if we make a change. Perhaps it’s that perfect job you’ve been eyeing or a relationship you want to pursue. What are you waiting for? Consider what would happen if you took no action. What could you miss out on? Now is the time to take a risk. Trust your intuition and innate abilities. You may get some scrapes and bruises along the way, but you would have played the game. Regret is much more painful than failure.
Until next time, remember – it’s your divine life, live it to the fullest. The power is in your hands!
