finding your edge

you know that point when you're outside of your comfort zone, but not in actual pain? that's what finding your edge is all about. truly experiencing that point of uneasiness coupled with excitement, yet devoid of injury.

in yoga class we talk a lot about finding your edge, and i think it is a great topic to ponder. how do you find your edge? i think of staying in the comfort zone as death. death to growth, death to challenge, death to new experiences. sure, moving outside of the safety box is uncomfortable, but it will sure give you a kick in the pants.

as we move into a fun holiday weekend, how can you move closer to your edge? take a class you don't normally take. play in the garden when you're not really a "get your hands dirty" gal. mingle with folks you don't know well. sign up for something you've been considering for years. buy a bike when you're normally a "play it safe and metro" girl. go for a run. grill corn in the husk. make a date with an acquaintance you've been wanting to get to know better. sit at a cafe and people watch, rather than reading the sunday paper at home.

each of us find our edge in different ways. remember your path is uniquely yours. but get your bum out there and make things happen. make friends with your edge and live on it! have a FABULOUS, edge-filled holiday weekend.
