So a little about me. I grew up in a very small town in Massachusetts; there was one blinking light in town, one gas station, one general store and there were about 200 kids in my entire high school. It was a very rural town, a conservative town, not much going on, but it was a very beautiful and quaint town. I had a nice life….. So fast forwarding through my life; what did I do with my life? I did things that were not so quiet and quaint as the town I grew up in! In college, I did an internship at a maximum security prison in Connecticut, then decided to work for them for about a decade, both because it was exciting and a bold career move at the time. Then…I decided I needed to pack my bags and move out to Las Vegas to reach my goal of moving to a warm climate and also pursue new and exciting career opportunities in the investigations field. And now… I am a California gal, still working in the field I love (investigations) while building on my passion; my company SmartChic! And guess what? I am loving every second of it.
So why am I telling you my story? Because I could have easily played my life ‘real’ safe. I could still be living in my hometown, or some place close by. And I would have had a good life. But for me, it just wasn’t what I really wanted. I always dreamed of big things and always wanted to expose myself to lots of experiences in life. So if I stayed in my comfort zone, I know that I would have limited my options in life, and for me it would have been a less than fulfilling life.
So, a question for you. Are you living too safe of a life? Are you not stretching your horizons, not going for it in life, not striving for what’s possible for you in life? You’ve got one life and I do not want you to live with any regrets in life. Know that there will be challenges…I’ve had them! But guess what. I got through them. And so can you. So I challenge you to live on the edge a little! Get out of that comfort zone and go for it in life!
Question: How are you going to start living life a little more out of your comfort zone; living a little more on the edge? How will you start living today to ensure you never have any regrets in life? I would love to hear from you! -Cynthia
