A few years ago, I made the courageous decision to pursue passions and interests regardless of what anyone thought.  This also meant I had to scrap my previous vision about how my life was going to turn out.

I realized that personal connection ignites the fire within my soul and brings purpose to my life. In addition, I found that throwing myself into new experiences brought me great joy. I was not born to simply move through the stages of life unaware and unmindful of all the small moments, the opportunities and the experiences life can offer.

A few years ago, I discovered Scare Your Soul and have been participating in many of their challenges and experiences since then. What do I find courageous? Showing up to something new (an event, a workout, a restaurant, a new destination) by myself. Although it can be uncomfortable at times, I’d rather go by myself and experience it than stay home and miss out.
