You may have had “in-between” times in your life: in-between jobs, in-between relationships, in-between the old you and the new you. Such times can make you feel uncomfortable and insecure, but that’s a good sign, says life coach Gail Blanke. It means you’re growing and you’re on the verge of making a major leap.
“That’s where the juice is,” she says, “That’s where fulfillment lies.”
Ways to embrace the unknown, even when you’re not “in-between”:
Sample new, exotic foods. Every couple of weeks, go to a different ethnic restaurant or use exotic ingredients in your own cooking. Catch yourself before you can say, “But I don’t like curry,” and try it anyway.
Listen to new music. Buy some music you’ve never heard or liked before, from Gregorian chants to salsa. Idea: Ask a teenager in your family if you can borrow a CD or swap MP3 players for a week.
Jump into a new sport. No need to enter an Ironman competition. Simply put yourself out there to feel the discomfort of learning something new and doing it anyway.
See yourself as a student. Your objective is to learn. You’ll soon go from fearing insecurity to thriving on adventure.
