Comfort Zone


I gave a presentation (my first in a while) this week at an Austin marketing group meet up. I stuttered a little bit from nervousness, but did not poop my pants from nervousness. We'll call that a win. I sometimes get so comfortable in my cozy little life that I don't want to venture outside of my comfort zone. This was one of those times, but I new it was a good opportunity for me and I wanted to take advantage of it. I want to make it a priority this year to get out of my comfort zone and meet new people, travel to new places, try new things. So much easier to say it than to do it! I get afraid of being bad at things, of having others think I'm bad at things. But really, that is what the growth happens. When I've moved to a new city, or said yes to what seemed like a crazy idea at the time, that is when I'm challenged and when I (wo)man up to the challenge. So, this is going to serve as a public commitment to get out there. Embrace the scary things. Keep my head up when things go a little wonky. And more than anything, to try to enjoy it all!
