Hello, bloggies! Happy Tuesday to you all!
Hopefully your Monday was swell.
I actually enjoyed a breakfast this morning out of my usual routine, pancakes.
Allow me to introduce you to my new found breakfast love. Well, for today anyways…
*Banana coconut pancakes with a side of greek yogurt and almond butter*
I am always hesitate to switch things up, because its convenient and a routine to just go back to the same old favourite. These were so good though. Mmm…
My daily routine is pretty boring, basic, and never changes. When you go through the day to day motions of life, nothing will change. Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. Why do I keep doing the same things over, while expecting things to change? It will simply not happen. Things were going well in life, but they remain the same. I want a different outcome, something to spark my passions and move me forward.
I don’t want to live through life being good enough, or float through life thinking I could always do something I love more, and get disappointed with the fact I’m not living to my full potential. I want to be excited about life again, feel passion about something. Feel the excitement of starting up a new routine.

It is scary to break from routine, what will happen if I do this differently? What happens if I go for my goal and I fail at it? Or I don’t like it as much as I think I will? Maybe this will make me realize my passion is not in what I think it is, but what’s the harm in trying? Nothing, the only thing worse than trying is not trying, out of fear. It won’t come easy, but life isn’t always easy.
I want to let go of the fear I have of making my dreams come true. When’s the last time I made a change where it really allowed me to live and follow my passions. To be honest, its been a long time. Fear overtakes my mind, and in return I don’t do anything to accomplish my goals. That is going to change.

Challenge yourself. Break out of that comfort zone. Start small and move your way on up to more challenging things. It’s amazing at what a small change can do for my confidence and self-esteem.
I’m off to get the day started. Hope you all have a good one!
When’s the last time you changed up your routine? Or challenged yourself to a new venture?
