I told my fabulous hair dresser I needed a quick new year jumpstart outside my comfort zone and had her give me a new short “do“.  I’ve had long hair for several years.  I figured this would be a fairly non-threatening new perspective.

The next day, I received edge pushing opportunities in spades. In one meeting I was scheduled with another person to speak briefly on local cable access TV, radio and to the newspaper about a fundraising event we are coordinating.

Once upon a time I would have found a way to not do them. Now I find myself slightly amused and ready for the challenge. I know it will be uncomfortable, but trust it will turn out just fine. I might be pleasantly surprised with the experience.

What could you do this year that is just a bit past your edge?  One small action can create a surprising series of events.  If you’ve been waiting and wondering for your best life to show up, perhaps it’s time to take a little step in that direction.

Be well.
