I see strangers chasing me with a knife as I approach them.

February 19, 2014

Decisions have to be made.

Should I stay within my comfort zone or step out of it and possibly live a thrilling life? I’ve never been the type to go beyond that invisible yellow line, but I think it’s time to tiptoe across and face the unknown. The challenge now is where to begin. After much thought, I made a list of things to guide me in accomplishing this new direction.

  1. Try new food. I’m not adventurous when it comes to food. I tend to hover over the familiar. It’s a difficult task, but I need to take baby steps. Start with spicy food, maybe?
  2. Talk to people. I’m paranoid, and in my head, I see strangers chasing me with a knife as I approach them. It must be the result of watching too many horror movies.
  3. Travel alone. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for so long. I keep putting up excuses not to do it. It’s time to be brave and do it at least once.
  4. Take photos of people. It’s so hard to approach strangers, but I might be making a big deal out of nothing.
  5. Wear something interesting. I need to find a particular style that suits me.

I’ll start with these five things and see what happens.
