Do one thing every day that scares you
Hello readers of Yes, Teacher Crafts! Sarah was kind enough to let a newbie like me guest post on her blog and I'm so thankful for the opportunity. I'm Riana and I blog here: 

I'm a 23 year old who loves: all things Disney, running, eating gummy worms, reading, having fun, and has a passion for traveling. 
Today I wanted to share a quote with you that I try to live by, "Do one thing every day that scares you." -Eleanor Roosevelt 
Many times we fear something and then let that fear limit us or hold us back from experiencing something new. Eating, watching, doing, ____________ (insert your choice of verb here) something new can teach us so much about ourselves and the world we live in. We can never learn from that which we don't try. The very thing that scares you could end up being something very rewarding that you truely love and enjoy.  
I know it's not actually feasible to do one thing every day that scares you, but it's more about living every day a little outside of your comfort zone. I never want to live with regrets for not taking full advantage of an opportunity or situation that was given to me. 
Last November I traveled to Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico. I had a blast trying new foods, drinks, and experiencing new activities while on vacation. We did a few extreme sports while we were there: atv riding through the jungle, jumping from a ledge into a cenote (a natural pit exposing natural ground water), zip lining, riding jet skis, and repelling. All of these activities were out of my comfort zone because I'm afraid of heights (something to do with falling to my death) and scared of high speeds. Another tourist on vacation said to me, "How often are you in Cancun? Go big or go home." He was right I had to take full advantage of where I was and the activities that were available.
Here are some photos from my trip to Cancun: 

I counted to 10 like 20 times before actually jumping. I can't really remember how high it is but I think it's about 100 feet from the water.

The bottom of the cenote. Isn't it pretty? 

Zip lining in the jungle

 Repelling. Idk how I managed to smile, I was sooo scared. I almost decided to skip this part.

You see why though right? You're a zillion feet in the air and there is nothing to set your feet on!! You're holding yourself. See that red rope on the left? In the time it took me to repel down, 4 people whizzed past me.

They told us not to go too fast, I was wayyy under their speed limit. My definition of fast and their definition of fast are two different things. 
  I just threw this one in for fun cause I liked it.
So remember to live each day a little outside of your comfort zone and do something every day that scares you. I'd love it if you stopped by my blog and checked it out!
