Put it to the Test September 22, 2012

Today, particularly hot, my sister, my nephew and I head downtown to check out a trade show being held out there. As we found our way in the building we peered inside the holding room seeing if it was worth paying the admissions fee. After a brief moment of inner debate we mutually agreed on what to do. We found our way out and ventured into the depths downtown.

Sidewalk View

So thus after grabbing a bite to eat we walked to the Water Gardens a few blocks down and went on a mini adventure, escapading through the many, well… water gardens! I took this as an opportunity to practice on my photography skills.

I also made it a personal goal to roam outside my comfort zone and ask at least one random person if I may take a photo of them to post to my blog…

Walkway to another Garden

It may not seem like much, but I get this daunting feeling inside that overwhelms me when it comes to reaching out to strangers. But, when I get to the brass taxes of it all there is nothing to lose. By setting my goal to ask a complete stranger if I can take a picture of them for my blog could have held one of two results; A) They could say yes or B) They could say no. I would not lose a body part and neither would they(!), both parties move on happily.

The Lucky Lady, Herself!

Both missions were successful in my opinion and it really helped remind me (and also prove to myself first hand) that I am the only one establishing limits to myself. By moving, even if by an inch, from my comfort zone I will succeed and reap the rewards of what I set my mind to do. Mini goals throughout the day really add up and the benefits are endless!

Decorated Tree

I came to a realization that to challenge yourself is the best way to grow. To challenge yourself gives you something to strive for and eventually you can make the requests of yourself bigger and bigger until one day you realize you just tackled and succeeded with your biggest dream! Today were small tasks, but they opened so many new doors and I just have to take the next step tomorrow.

Thank you very much for reading, I hope your day was bright! And whether it was or wasnt, Check this Out! Funny :)
