Have you ever wanted to do something, SO BAD, but the thought of it just made you sick. Like want-to-throw-up-in-your-mouth sick?
Have you ever decided to ignore that sick feeling and just go for it!! I hope you have, but even if you haven’t there’s still time. You will be amazed at how much you grow and I bet something awesome will come from it.
What I described above was me last week!
I put myself out there…it was awesome, but let’s be honest, I thought I was going to throw up!
I decided to fly across the country, by myself, to a blog conference where I knew NO ONE! I have met people online through Facebook and other blog stuff but I wouldn’t say that I have a strong group that I have really clicked with, that I can say, “they’re my group.” Does that make sense?
I knew that going would to be good for me…I just had to have the courage to take that first step!
I remember arriving at the hotel and getting to my room on Thursday evening. I sat down in the chair and didn’t want to move. It had been a long day of travels and I just wanted to rest and binge watch HGTV. It would have been so easy and “comfortable” to hang out by myself in my comfort zone.
I mustered up enough courage to get out and go down to the lounge….Guess what? I met amazing people, had amazing food, and really enjoyed myself.
I just went for it, and it paid off.
The decision that I made that night, to just go for it, set the tone for the entire weekend. I looked confident and happy. I smiled and was talking to everyone. My hands are a little shaky right now as I write this, because thinking back to last week….almost makes me want to throw up….hahah
I can’t even tell you how many things along the way told me that I was supposed to be there. The fact that Brooke and Mandi were sitting in the airport when I arrived- and that we had the same flights there AND back, it made all the difference. And let’s face it, getting to chat it up with them was AWESOME!
Here are a couple DIY’s to try.
Since I can never be organized enough.
Because laundry baskets are always prettier with color!
