Slip Ons: Sam Edleman
Ever feel like life repeats itself in these big circles and everything ends up coming back around? (Not Karma..... But seriously, history makes the same mistakes, we make the same mistakes when we swore we wouldn't and we don't push ourselves outside of our box when we know
we need to. For some reason, I really enjoy the comfort of consistency and keeping patterns (what a shocker!). I enjoy the comforts of being shy (even though I am an extrovert) and once I have a group of friends I typically stop trying to make new ones. Why is this? I find myself falling into the same dumb patterns of comfort and mediocrity. Everyday I should be jumping up and down, doing something adventurous, and meeting someone new, because today is a new day and I am blessed to be in it! However, I struggle with getting myself outside of my box of comfortable habits. Whether it is not willing to open up and be vulnerable with someone I am close to or not being willing to put myself out there and make a new friend. Yet even though I am acutely aware of my desire to be more pumped and engaged in each day, I still end up going home every day after school realizing that there were probably at least 10 people that I could have talked to or complimented in attempt to brighten their day and get to know them. Why does human behavior foster cyclical lives? This week I am going to challenge myself to do things that make me stop looking back at the past and start looking forward to the future and who I am going to become. Challenging myself to be better and the best person I can be... making the biggest contribution to the world that I can ...
