Z is for Zippers

When I first started sewing, I was intimidated by zippers. I figured out ways to use buttons, elastic, and velcro to avoid sewing a zipper. Then one day, I made a dress and the before mentioned alternatives just wouldn’t work. So, I sewed my first zipper. Far from perfect, but it looked good enough.

Now, I look at life like zippers. There are many times we are afraid to try something for the fear of it not working out. But what if it does? And what about the lessons we learn when it doesn’t?

What are the zippers in your life? Roasting a turkey? Writing a novel? Entering a triathlon? Riding a city bus for the first time?

Open those zippers. I can’t promise success, but I can promise growth and that’s a far better alternative than staying stagnant.
