Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to really, truly listen.  I tried to be more alert and aware.  I also tried to realize that sometimes people just need a listening ear and not necessarily an answer.  

My husband teased me the other day.  He came over to me and started mumbling quietly.  I said, "What did you say?"  He mumbled again.  

I gave him a questioning look and he said, "I guess you're not doing very well on this week's challenge!"  He smirked and off he went.  He makes me laugh.

This week's challenge is to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable.  A long time ago I had a woman I admired share some advice she received from someone she admired.  It was simple.  "Do something everyday that makes you feel uncomfortable."  I think our lack of comfort often holds up back from helping others.  We worry about the what if's instead of acting on the inspired idea.

Now this challenge is super duper broad and it's different for everyone.  I am excited to see what you all come up with.  Thanks for reading.
