Over the last few years, I’ve discovered that trying something new and stepping out of my comfort zone always ends up being really fulfilling!  Staying where you feel comfortable can be limiting – trying new things can open up doors, expand your career and give you extra confidence!

Do something you are afraid of

One of my biggest fears is heights!  Over the summer I did a long narrow hike and the entire time I felt like I was going to fall over the edge of the mountain.  There were moments where I felt like I couldn’t move!  I went slow, held onto a friend’s hand, told the group how I was scared – opening up about your fears can help too! I ending up getting less and less nervous as we went along.  The adrenaline rush left me feeling excited and rewarded when it was over!  Every time you face a fear, it gets a little bit easier.

Push yourself

If you told me a few years ago that I would be training for a marathon in 2018 I would have laughed – I could barely run one mile!  Now, after completing four half marathons, I’ve decided to step out of my comfort zone and go for the full!  I know once it is over I will feel so accomplished!

Try a new class

It could be a workout, painting, french class – anything you are interested in!  Go by yourself and try something new and I am sure you will leave feeling proud!

Join a group with new people

I recently joined a Bible Study that most of the ladies had been a part of for years!! At first I was intimidated and overcome with social anxiety, but after a few meetings I am now so happy I joined.  I’m loving the scripture, making new friends and feeling stronger in my faith!

Try a new scent

Fragrance can remind you of a certain time in life – try something new!  The Givenchy L’interdit fragrance from Bloomingdale’s is all about the thrill, crossing boundaries and a liberating experience.

I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and let me know how it makes you feel!
