I'm in the business of taking risks lately, remember my mantra:

"Do one thing everyday that scare you."
 -Eleanor Roosevelt 

In most areas I have been feeling vulnerable, ill-prepared or not confident. I have been knitting difficult patterns, cooking new foods, eating very healthy/various "dancers" workouts to strengthen my body, taking on many families(to nanny for) and dancing many, many hours. With all these great changes I have been making, some areas are not open to risks. My heart is pretty closed to relationships, it's difficult to open up and my "free" time, is spent doing "comfortable" things, blog-hopping, and t.v. Lastly, I haven't been taking risks with sweet Holy Spirit. Somedays, I'm just scared to obey, somedays I don't listen. 

I'm trying to be brave.

What are you doing that scares you? What brave thing should you do?

I think that is totally understandable. When there is a lot of transition or new things going on in my life, I tend to need more time alone, to be recharged. I love the quote you posted so much, and I am proud of how you are taking it seriously. What a great thing to be witnessing as your friend! Youre doing great, and inspiring me!

I've been taking slow steps toward some career goals, and that can be scary. I've literally been having weird and sometimes scary dreams about it all. But I'm trying to reply on Him for the strength and direction.

i think we have a lot in common. Since I've been in Alaska it's been hard for me to make new friendships with people up here. I guess that exactly it- my heart is closed off and I'm not taking risks. I love your honesty in this post! Let's be brave together :)

ps your outfit is insanely cute (as always).
