A little challenge goes a long way :-)

I had a brief but extremely thought provoking conversation yesterday with a good friend.

It was about the importance of making the effort to do the things you’ve always wanted to do.

Looking in from the outside, you might wonder why someone wouldn’t simply go ahead and do those things.

But so many things can get in the way…prioritising other things, fitting in with what other people want, lack of time, lack of confidence, your own and other people’s expectations, to name but a few.

So, it’s not always easy.

But the feelings of joy, confidence and happiness which come from challenging yourself to do something new, whether it’s taking a burlesque class, going out on your own to meet new friends, growing a beard, or training for a marathon, do mean it’s worth giving it a try.

I wonder what should be next on my list?
