How often do you get out of your comfort zone? You know, that nervous, curious, hold your breath not knowing what to expect feeling….
For better or for worse, when I reflect on my 20’s, I realize that I always seem to get comfortable, and then most of the time without realizing it get out of my comfort zone again. Too comfortable in my job: then I decide to open my own business. Been doing the same workout for too long: try something completely new that takes a new skill. Wearing the same long hair for a while: cut it all off. Staying in the same city for too long: up and move to a new city where I know no one.
Sometimes I would do it because I knew the only way to grow and improve would be to step out again and make a change. It is scary, but it’s thrilling and challenging (in a good way) too.
I had the opportunity to partner up with Crocs (wearing these super cute sandals) and SheKnows to do something I’ve never done before. Can we say #ExtremePogoSticking?! Who has ever thought about that, I know I hadn’t! Jump on over to SheKnows to see the full video diary and to see if I could actually do it…. (Spoiler alert: it’s WAY harder than it looks….)
The metaphor of the experience is a good one: try something that scares you. Keep trying OVER and OVER and OVER again. And when the going gets tough, don’t give up.
I want to challenge you: whether it’s big or small, to #FindYourFun and get out of your comfort zone! Xx
