100 Words: Choosing Challenge

choosing challenge lululemon-bagIf you buy fancy yoga gear from lululemon, you will likely take it home in a groovy, quote-covered bag. One of my favorites they borrowed from Eleanor Roosevelt:

“Do one thing a day that scares you.”

In my life of comfort and convenience, it is easy to avoid anything but comfort and convenience. By choosing challenge, choosing to do one thing every day that scares me, I am strengthening my ability to stay present and calm when I’m having difficulty and discomfort.

Choose challenge so when life happens and things fall apart, you have the tolerance to be with it.
