I’ve been in my current career for the last decade. I have an opinion about a lot of things that go on but I choose wisely which ones to address. It’s been very difficult. The parts where my voice shakes; the parts of me where the wounds come out; my emotional growth. Uhg HARD!! But I keep pushing myself. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Yep, it’s hard. But everything is hard before it gets easy! 😀 LikeLike Reply I was challenged to write fiction based on a random picture – umm, Thursday? It wasn’t something that I would have set myself to, because I generally start with an idea, and fill it in. I”m happy with it. I may make a habit of this, if only for my own growth.

I did it by forcing myself to nap between 7:00 and 11:00 p.m. No regrets . . . yet.

The stories were fiction with a touch of erotic romance. Totally out of my comfort zone. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply That’s definitely hard to do. I’ve struggled with it in the past. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Nice! How was the feedback? LikeLike Reply When I decided to become a home caregiver. I always loved the medical field but it’s totally different when you’re giving one on one care to someone. I had to tell myself everyday, just be yourself, what you didn’t know today carry it with me to the next time I’m faced with it. You find strengths within yourself you didn’t know before.

What do I have to lose?!” LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Yep, that’s right! After a while, each decision tends to be followed by this “Fuck it! What do I have to lose?!” LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Purposely throwing myself into hanging out with two folks I completely did not know, one being a kid I met at a party two days prior & the other being his girl, doesn’t sound like I stepped out of my comfort zone but that was a definite. A while ago I’ve confirmed that my biggest social fears are awkward incidences, Its not such a big deal considering I’m not really an awkward person to begin with (hope that doesn’t sound cocky, oops) but pairing a slightly awkward person with a person slightly more awkward can conjure up those “incidences” quite easily, especially when the two specimens aren’t familiar with one another, needless to say, the day ended splendidly with little to none of those awkward moments I greatly fear, (yes I keep track) and I’m still friends with those two today, lets see how long this one last haha LikeLiked by 1 person Reply That is very nice! The more you face these social fears, the easier it will get to put yourself out more. I experienced that first hand.

First semester is gone and I am preparing for the second one which just started: I have to say I regret this decision almost every day 😀 because it’s really hard, also having a full time job and being surrounded by native speakers colleagues with way more spare time than me to dedicate to it. It’s full of papers, projects, assignments so I really hope I will make it through because I hate giving up and abandoning things at a half 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I guess that the fact that is hard will bring you a bigger satisfaction once you complete it 😀 LikeLike Reply Pingback: Question of the Day – No. 301 And Word of the Day Challenge — envision – Salted Caramel The last time I got out of my comfort zone is when I addressed being picked on my boss.

I had it all planned out in my head of what I was going to wear, where I would park my car etc which helped loads. My friend met me in the car park and we walked to my office together. I was a bag of nerves and was so anxious about it all. But, I knew I had to do it. My friend text me at intervals through the 4 hours I was back (phased return) just to check on how I was doing which helped me loads. I found that preparing for the day helped and taking it all one step at a time was the best method for me. xx LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Everything involves a process. If we miss some steps, the outcome gets screwed. I’m glad you’ve found what can help you 🙂 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Thanks! And thank you for asking the question for me to think about and answer xx LikeLiked by 2 people Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
