  • Hi Lauren. Thanks so much for the kind words 😊
    Yeah it was a little daunting. But still worth it, even now knowing how things are w her. I wouldn’t change anything at all. It was so rewarding.
    A plane huh? Well if I know you even a little, if it’s something you decide you wanna do, you will do it. I know that 100% 😊
    Happy to be on the journey w you and everyone else !

    Wow. What a great letter. Sorry you had it rough like that. What an unbelievable strength you have. To stay true to yourself and not let your guard down. I can’t imagine the courage it required to say goodbye like that. You seem like a really strong girl Danielle

    Wow! What a cool story ! Good on you that you went back in the bar and got him. The regret you would have felt by wondering “what would have happened”? is the worst. The “what if?” is a terrible feeling. Way to go Danielle. 😊

  • Bye bye Comfort Zone

    I’ve always been very weary of the unknown and trying new things. Clothes, hobbies, especially food. Mom would try to get me to try new food. Me: “I don’t like it”. Mom: “you never tried it”. Me: “ but I know I won’t like it”. My ex girlfriend was mystified by that thinking lol. My buddy says he has a buddy just like me. Go to a restaurant. Try something new? Why bother? Why deviate from what I know ? From the known?
    The most recent and somewhat terrifying comfort zone was two summers ago. I went to visit my ex girlfriend in Manhattan. She was working for her company in herald square. I hadn’t traveled since 2011. And now i would have to travel post Covid, to an airport in New Jersey , then catch a train to Times Square. Solo. This didn’t match well with my slight anxiety of crowds and the unknown. Lots of crowds. Lots of unknown. I got the courage because I was so excited to go visit her that I just ignored the nervousness, told myself that people do this all the time, and that I’d be fine. I gained the courage because I had no choice haha. But mainly because I couldn’t wait to go see her.
    The outcome of leaving my comfort zone last summer was total success. I got there fine (with maybe a bit of help from some kind folks along the way). The joy of walking down Manhattan and realizing I was going the right direction was so joyful and satisfying. We had a great time. Friday ws one of the best days of my life. We saw so many places. So many new things. Even though she got a little sick on Saturday, I got sent on a solo errand while she rested. An easy one, but I did it. And we made the best of that night. And made it to Times Square the next day before I left. I was so glad that I went out on that ledge, so to speak. Turned out so great
    My advice to anyone scared of the unknown (including myself) is to forget your fears and just go for it. Take the chance. I’m glad I did last summer that’s for sure. Live those new moments and experiences. I figure it’s better to try and realize it was a good idea or bad idea than to wonder what could have been. Except jumping out of a plane. I don’t need to try that particular adventure.haha. But conquering the unknown one little experience at a time can be pretty satisfying. This I’ve learned and hopefully will continue to do so

    • Jim, I remember you told this story in one of our zooms before. I love it even more now reading it than I did when you told it. It’s really sweet. It shows your heart, and what happens when your passion is stronger than your fears,

    Thank you Mavis. I certainly was lucky to have the parents that I did. All they did was care about us. And yet still lived their lives to the fullest. Thanks again 😊

    Thanks Lauren. Yeah the Indians conjure up so many great memories. The sounds and smells of baseball- playing it or being at a game- I’ll never forget. Crack of the bat, smelling my glove out in the outfield, the sound of cleats in the dirt. Love it all. Man I want to see one title in my life. That’s all i ask for 😊
