"Face fear and it ceases to exist" is a favorite quote of mine. Whenever I am starting something new, or headed out to an event without a wingman (or wing-woman), I feel those first pangs of discomfort. They warn me that I am about to embark on something that could possibly be uncomfortable. I've learned to acknowledge that warning (usually my ego talking) and say, "thank you for your concern, but I think I'll try this thing anyways, and see what happens."
I'm learning and growing all the time. I'm beginning to believe that that is what life is all about. Expansion of ourselves through experience and desire. If you are on the Abraham Hicks boat, you'll resonate with that. I've been exploring their view on life and it feels really good to me. To see every day and every opportunity as a way to expand who we are. Good experiences and bad- they offer us value if we are ready to receive it. Sometimes that is way more easily said than done, but I still like to keep it floating around my mind.
The water may not always be calm, but if we dive in, I think we will find the experience more exhilerating than we could have imagined.
You can't experience new lands from the confines of your comfort zone. -Jen Sincero from You are a Badass at Making Money
