Living On The Edge

"I'm not a morning person."

That was the response when a parent was asked if they could help out with their child's community service project.  A simple statement of a simple fact. But what else does it say?

It could say many things but it screams of not wanting to live outside of the comfort zone. jeff noel and his guest blogger, Lorie Sheffer, are always urging their readers to remember that life begins outside our comfort zones. That stepping beyond our normal can be eye opening, frightening, anxious, exhilarating, a learning experience or lesson learned.

Just one little step, and a new dawn. Exciting.

It would be nice if the garden were outside this guy's comfort zone.
BIG known fact about me: I will drive to Florida without blinking an eye. Pack the car and we are off. But ask me to drive into Boston... that is asking me to live outside my zone.  Thankfully that request came yesterday and I drove the girls into Boston to see Disney on Ice. A great time was had by all.

Yes, keep moving forward. Keep inching beyond our boundaries.
