Feminist Mantra Monday 28: Stretch
This month everyone around me seems to be pushing their boundaries and stepping outside their comfort zones. Some have taken this on voluntarily, and others have been forced to try new things or new ways of doing things. But regardless of the motive, I find that the energy around me is buzzing with change, everything feels fresh and new.
This is one of my favorite things about the change in seasons. As it finally begins to feel like summer in Chicago, we all start moving our bodies and stretching out again. We make ourselves a bit uncomfortable, and we grow infinitely as a result.
This week, I challenge you to stretch. Aim for something out of your reach, and see if you can grasp it. It may be a raise, a new apartment, a challenging recipe, or, hell, even your toes. Stretch and see where that new space takes you.
