Day 30 – The End

I saw this on Etsy the other day and fell in love:

I think it’s fair to say that it’s hard for most people to step outside of their comfort zone. I also think it’s fair to say that a lot of people are searching for something they will never find unless they take that first step. You know that whole, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” thing? Yeah, that.

Take the shot.

Whatever it is that you want to be, or do…just try. I promise that no one will laugh at you or call you foolish. Even if you fail, they will say, “Wow. How great that she tried!” or “He never shirks away from a challenge”.

If you want to learn to tango, wear a red dress, get a new job, go back to school, attend trapeze lessons, start going to church, run a marathon, clean out your garage, or write a blog post every day for a month (or even…let’s say…28 days out of 30), then go for it!

Maybe, just maybe, you will succeed.

And, that will feel spectacular.

    I love that, and already subscribe to that philosophy. It’s an amazing feeling once you realize how much in life is really under our own control.

    I just love you, Momo.

    Something I heard a few days ago, the source being 19 years old: “Change is instant. Not-changing is very very hard and takes a very very very long time.”

  • Amanda

    Yes. I totally agree. it is so much better to be brave!

  • Varda (SquashedMom)

    It’s definitely a win that you wrote 28 out of 30 days this month! Love this message.

    It reminds me of my dad’s favorite saying growing up: “If you always do what you always do, you will always get what you always get.”

    Reminds me of the scene in Finding Nemo, when Dory says to Marlin: “You can’t let NOTHING ever happen to him. Or nothing will ever happen to him!”

    Thanks Momo. Boy do I need to hear this lately. Mind if I return a few times to this post and re-read it? Over and over and over?
