Okay, mostly I just love the phrase Derring-do. It’s fun to say, and reminds me of Epic Sagas, and Swashbuckling Heroes, and Knights Errant. And Errol Flynn. sigh…
What was I saying?…..
Oh yes, Life Lesson No. 4 – Be Daring (which doesn’t sound nearly as swashbucklingly awesome as Derring-do)
Do something that scares you a bit. Maybe not everyday, but every once in a while. Step outside the box! For some that means jumping out of a perfectly useful plane (I think that’s crazy, but to each their own). For others, that means giving a speech in front of one’s peers. For yet others, taking a road-trip – All By ONESELF!!
Whatever it might be, do something that makes you just a bit nervous – that gives you butterflies – that makes your palms sweaty – or that scares the devil out of you! Choose your own level of Derring-Do and Do it! Afterward, you’ll be standing just a little bit taller, and saying to yourself –
Yeah, I just did that. I totally rock.
