Uncomfortable January at Lark and Bloom

This month my friend Liz is running an exciting new series on her blog, Lark and Bloom. The series is called An Uncomfortable January and it's all about stepping out of our comfort zone, taking risks, and doing the things that scare us. It's been amazing so far. Each post has been thoughtful, inspiring, challenging, and encouraging. Today I have the great honor of being included in the guest bloggers for this series. I'm sharing about two different adventures in my life - a risk I chose and one I did not choose. Here's a quick quote from the post:

"My husband and I value risk and adventure and even being a little uncomfortable. We don’t want fear to control or guide our decisions. But, what do you do when you are thrown into a an adventure that feels too risky? An adventure that comes hand-in-hand with fear? When all of life becomes a great risk, when the adventure feels too stressful to take anymore, well, what do you do then? You go into survival mode. You stop seeking risk. You seek out comfort, not the uncomfortable. And instead of your life expanding, it shrinks."

I hope you'll hop over to Lark and Bloom and read the rest of the post. Take a look around while you are there - I know you won't regret it!

Rejoicing in the journey, Bethany
