Hump day Treadmill Treats
Being open to new experiences
I remember when I use to live my life in fear. I was afraid of change, so much so, I stayed in a horrendous situation for years because I was too afraid of the unknown.
What I’ve come to learn is that change is good, it takes you out of your comfort zone and shakes you up. It keeps you on your toes and makes you feel alive.
There are so many things I’ve done in the last 4 years that I would have told you, you were crazy if you thought I would do them years before.
Starting by leaving my marriage, to doing a marathon and then a triathlon, especially because of the fact I hated running and I suck at swimming.
I never thought I would get a tattoo for that matter or be so active in a church, ha, that is a funny one even to me!
I was afraid to speak in front of people, deathly afraid but I’ve learned to overcome it so that I might give my message to others.
I use to be shy, okay you can stop laughing now…Yes, me with the big mouth.
Really I was, especially in large groups and yet I’ve overcome that fear as well.
Last night I was picked to do a focus group on the Democratic debates. There was 28 of us and many, many behind the scenes people who were there to film it live for Fox news.
Now if you would have told me years ago I’d be doing this I would have run crying but here I was stepping out of my box yet again, doing something I was terrified of.
And guess what? I did it I talked to a room full of strangers, on live TV and I didn’t die…I actually said my opinion and sounded intelligible, imagine that?
I actually had a good time…who would have thought? Definitely not me three years ago.
I am always telling you that you can do it, how do I know this? Because if I can, you can. I am you and you are me. We are human and we’re scared sometimes, we don’t think we can do it, we don’t like change, we are afraid of the unknown.
But I’m here to tell you it’s not so bad… you just have to be open to new experiences.
So today my friends, throw your fear away, step out in the unknown, try new experiences and new things. Stretch yourself beyond your limits, beyond what you thought was possible. It is only then that you will see your true strength, what you are truly made of and what you’ve been missing all along.
