"Do Something Scary"

Most mornings, my husband reliably says, "Have a good Thursday (or Mon, Tues, Wed, Fri.)!" as he heads off to work. It's his standard farewell to me each day.

Today he switched it up and said, "Do something scary"...

By "do something scary", I'm pretty sure he didn't mean something like, "Try crystal meth" or "Drive your car right thru the red lights" or anything else that could be harmful and also scary. I don't think I'm going out on a limb here to interpret it as the type of scary that's an invigorating challenge.

I love it that he said this. It made me think. What's my scary thing I can do today? It's probably very important to make sure I do that most days. Maybe even every day! And what's really the worst thing that could happen? (As long as I don't interpret "scary" in the wrong way) It could only add to my life. And I think in saying those words to me, he must have figured that applies to his day as well.

I've got a few ideas of how to heed his advice. Its a great beginning to the day.
