Confession: I always feel like I’m the dumbest person in the room. In a couple of weeks I’ll be sitting in a classroom and I’ve been getting the worst anxiety just thinking about it. The last few nights I haven’t been able to sleep because I’ve allowed this fear to creep into my mind. I won’t know anybody, some of the topics are way out of my comfort zone and I haven’t been in a classroom in years. I’m proud of myself for always stepping outside my comfort zone and challenging myself but man it can be hard. I truly believe that everything you’ve ever wanted is one step outside of your comfort zone. Every time I’ve pursued something scary, I come out of it feeling like the most amazing woman in the world & that feeling outweighs any ounce of fear I have in the beginning.
