Stretch A Little

2015 March 5


Well, hello there!

Pardon the radio silence but a lot has been happening in this little life of ours and I haven’t had the time I have wanted to have to sit and write and process and get inspired.

We are embarking on some changes for our family that are exciting and new and long overdue and scary and intimidating and bold. We had been sitting on this decision for a long while now, hemming and hawing about it. Changing perspective with each day. Looking one step forward and then settling comfortably two steps back.

Then the other day as we were chatting with a business associate, something he said struck me…

“This is the time in your life to stretch a little.”

Stretch a little.

It doesn’t mean having to dive in deep. It doesn’t mean having to change overnight. It doesn’t mean anything beyond what you want it to.

But for us, it is indeed the right time to stretch a little. To take a risk here and there. To think outside of our box. To forget about the past and the future for one minute and live in the now, without fear or hesitation or intimidation.

To remember that if you don’t stretch a little in life, you may not grow.

So we have chosen to stretch a little. I will share more details on what that means for us, personally, once I have them, but in the meantime, I welcome you to think about stretching a little, too.

Take a risk. Look beyond that box. Try something that scares you a bit.

And see how you grow.

Have a great day. xx

    Hi Raluca. Can’t thank you enough for posting this- so inspiring. I myself am experiencing similar feelings. It’s comforting to know I’m not alone. The fear or stagnating, I believe, is far scarier than the thought of taking a risk. Wishing you the best in your “stretch!”

    I love this! This is why I adore your blog. Good for you! I totally know the feeling. We’re still in the “fear” phase, but I love the idea of stretching a little. An acting professor of mine in college (that seems like eons ago!) said “all people need sometimes in the permission to do what they really want to do.” I think in a way we all need someone to say “do.” Thank you for that! Congratulations to your family 🙂
