Have I ever mentioned how much I love homemade chocolate chip cookies? Something deep within me settles as the familiar aroma of fresh baked goodness wafts through my kitchen. The simple routine of baking offers me reassurance that all will be okay.
Although routines can be comforting, never straying from them has consequences. Just because old habits make me feel good doesn’t mean they’re always good for me. I love that there are things in life that are a sure bet, but at the same time, realize that taking risks is part of moving forward.
I’ve taken a lot of risks lately. I’ll admit it, it has not been easy. It would definitely have been simpler and easier to stay in a place that’s old and familiar.
So why do it you might ask? Why challenge myself when I could simply sit at home baking cookies and watching Netflix?
Truth is, I believe there’s something big around the corner. Something wonderful that’s worth the journey. We’re not quite there yet, but we’re getting there. You and me and the Landing Strong Team.
How incredible that we allow ourselves to venture into that new place together.
