Helloooo! And a special hello to the new faces on Facebook! I was very surprised considering I’ve been so quiet for the past month. Maybe it’s the silence you like… *grin*
So I really haven’t meant to leave you in the lurch for an entire month! *Begs forgiveness* To make up for it, I’ll just ramble for longer *wink*. So be prepared, don’t say I didn’t warn you. You may want a stash of food and drink by your side, we could be here for hours.
I have to tell you about the fish spa because it has become quite the craze everywhere. And the other week a friend and I decided to go. Nothing like spending the day with fish eating your feet eh?
The tiny little squiggly things look harmless right?
I never tried this before but I figured I could handle it. I stuck my feet in and screamed (hey they were eating me ALIVE). My poor friend (love her to bits) had to put up with a shrieking psycho thinking the fish were going to bite off her toes (doesn’t help that I’ve seen Piranha 3D where people actually DIE!). It normally takes a few minutes to work up the courage to calmly leave your feet in the tank. Or you can also scream “They’re eating me, they’re eating me!” for the entire time with your eyes squeezed shut.
See what I mean?
I survived. And I still have ten toes. So you know it’s safe.
This is definitely something to do if you haven’t already. Your feet will feel softer than you have ever felt them to be. Exfoliating with nothing but a tickle! And have your camera at the ready for some ridiculous photos!
Sometimes in life, we’re faced with situations where we have to step out of our comfort zones to get what we want. But for a lot of us (including myself sometimes), we do all we can to GET OUT of it. We make the excuses, pass the buck and convince ourselves that it’s something we shouldn’t do or don’t need to do anyway.
Because sometimes it’s just too darn scary.
See in life there are many forces that try to keep us where we are, to limit us, to contain our potential. But the one thing we all have inside us, is the ability to overcome. We all want to grow, pursue bigger things, climb to greater heights. And sometimes all it takes to get to the next level is a little self-belief as we take a leap of faith out of our comfort zones into something new (I’m, of course, not saying we should be reckless and take stupid leaps).
And with time, often what we’ll find is that this scary-uncomfortable-zone we just jumped into, has all of a sudden become a whole lot more comfortable. Much like with the fish spa. Feels terrifyingly (irrational thoughts of piranhas here!) gross and slimey to begin with, then it becomes a pleasant tickle.
We all have hopes and big dreams, things we want to accomplish. Sometimes it’ll get difficult along the way, we may feel afraid of what might happen, or if we will succeed. But if we don’t try, if we don’t push forward, if we just let things pass us by, we may just miss a great opportunity and live to regret it.
My fish experience reminded me of all this. Sometimes I get very confused as to how my brain works.
Have a fantastic week! Put your heart into all that you do and know that you’ll do great!
P.S. I’m making changes to the site (by myself which is rather worrying!), hence the delays in updating and why things look out of sorts. I do apologize and will fix things hopefully soon and without problems. Thanks for being so patient!
