I read this book by Susan Jeffers in May last year.
I’ve always been shy and nervous of new situations.
Meeting new people especially.
So I bought this book to try and get over this fear.
It had held me back.
I am a firm believer in changing things if you are not happy with them.
I read it and then put it away.
Didn’t really embrace it but one thing stuck with me.
Making your comfort zone bigger.
So on New Years Day 2014, I wrote down resolutions that would make my zone bigger.
I checked in on them yesterday.
I’ve done a lot of them.
Go to a gym class, which I had a huge phobia of.
Going to do a school talk tomorrow about waste – my suggestion.
Get a personal trainer.
It actually hurts to sit down after last night’s session.
I wished I have tried to make my comfort zone bigger a long time ago.
I get butterflies in my tummy for things still but I know how to channel them now.
I got asked to be a guest speaker at a business event last week.
I would have actually run away at the thought a year ago.
Looking forward to it? Yes.
I barely recognise me.
I’m definitely doing it anyway.
