Daring Deeds

Remember when your dreams seemed immeasurable? What is your dream job (the sky’s not the limit!), and why?

On March 4th, 2020, daredevil Nik Wallenda walked on a tightrope across an active volcano in Nicaragua. What’s the most daring thing you’ve done? It doesn’t have to be as extreme as walking across an active volcano! What’s pushed you beyond your comfort zone? 

“The most daring thing I have done with my life is finally taking the steps to follow my dreams and goals. As silly as that sounds, I’m the type of person who loves helping others and making sure other people are happy and well before helping myself. I took a step back and realized that in some ways, I was very unhappy and needed a change! So, I started to travel more and do things that I’m really interested in. I found local classes like pottery and art. My self-journey has just taken off but I’m starting to feel whole again!”
