I am willingly stepping through the doorway of opportunity
I have a colleague and friend who, more than once, has offered me opportunities professionally to try something that stretches me beyond what I feel comfortable doing. Most recently he suggested that we record a series of podcasts together about conflict. I was more than a little hesitant, but I also recognized the potential benefit to myself and others if I said yes.
It took several months to explore the idea, record and edit the podcasts but somewhere along the way I realized how grateful I was to have said yes. I did not know it before I began, but it started to feel like I was doing something I had always wanted to do. I am hopeful that it is well received and creates the opportunity to do more but regardless of how it is received I realize how crucial it is for my own growth to continue saying yes when opportunities arise.
