One Saturday in the middle of September I went to see a movie.
Little did I know that the movie was about to change my life.
The scene gave me chills: A group was sitting around a bonfire with banjos and guitars, and everyone was singing along. But, along with all the typical instruments, one unique instrument stood out to me –– a cello. The second I heard the first note coming from that beautiful instrument I knew in my heart that I would become a cellist.
I am not necessarily musically gifted so this was a pretty strange thing to dream of becoming.
But I decided then and there that it would happen.
I would be a cellist.
And although it’s completely out of my comfort zone, and I am definitely not playing at Carnegie Hall (cough cough, yet) I have mastered the art of playing “Jingle Bells” and that is one step closer.
That one moment when I decided to step out from my comfort zone and play the cello brought a multiplicity of goodness into my life. Playing the cello has now become one of my favorite hobbies. And one day I hope my gift will bless the lives of others.
Today have the courage to step out of your comfort zone, because great things never come from staying there.
