YOUR LARGEST FEAR CARRIES YOUR GREATEST GROWTH
Comfort zones are a bitch… Adulting is hard and it’s just too easy to get stuck in the responsiblity mud. I’m not sure about you – but the sticky, sinking feeling of what I should do or be at 28 years old is not the place I want to find myself trapped in, as much as I am trapped there. Trapped in everyone else’s expectations of what my life should look like, who I should be.
But, I get scared. Scared of social situations of communicating clearly and well, and of being liked. Will I be enough? Will I be interesting? Am I boring? Do I make sense? all constant thoughts in my head.
ENOUGH. Enough with the mind chatter and fear. Enough with the worry, the added stress because, I am enough.
I stepped through my comfort zone last weekend and attended this ‘Ladies Celebrating Ladies‘ event, Shibori workshop from Amy with For The Love and dipped our gloved hands into the coolest vats of indigo. We chatted, sweated a little and ate FoodGore’s ‘Girl Gang’ ice cream. In the end, my heart seriously was warmed and I had an awesome tote bag.
I was nervous, I didn’t communicate the best I could. But, I showed up. It was so worth it. The things that scare us ultimately lead to some of the most impactful/heartfelt moments. I was brave and realized what friends, amazing lady friends I have and could have if I just keep breathing and keep walking through this comfort zone.
“Real change is difficult at the beginning, but gorgeous at the end. Change begins the moment you get the courage and step outside your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Roy T. Bennett
