August 23rd, 2012

Last fall my small group spent 6 weeks encouraging each other to take risks through a program called Sparkgood.  It was a very motivating time, as we watch people get out of their comfort zone for a little bit of time, attacking challenges that lay in front of them.  Some simple, some huge, but we did it.

This week the creator of that program is releasing a book about the whole idea of taking risks and pushing your self through those boundaries that we create around ourselves.

I saw this bit of artwork from his book, and I thought it was good to share.  I can’t seem to figure out how to embed Instagram photos this morning, so I just have to share the link, and the words

While we can’t be sure of how far we can go, we do know this, we we’re meant to go further then we are today.

That’s pretty true, as we keep losing ourselves and taking ourselves less seriously and break down false barriers, we will go so much farther.
