For the past few years I have been suffering from a slight form of anxiety and I have found that this has really held me back from doing so many this for a while so at the beginning of this year I decided that I was just going to agree to more things than I usually would and I would just give more things a go basically and I can honestly say I am so happy I made this decision.

How many times have you looked back at things and not necessarily regretted something but just wished you had done more or just tweaked the slightest bit. My thing is that I make myself feel sick if I go places new or further away from my house. I am not ill at all I just convince myself I feel ill so that I can go home, which is my safe place, where I know everything is okay and I can’t be hurt. Well yes that is my being crazy, or am I crazy, I don’t know. This year I have actually been working on telling myself that actually I am being so silly and that I don’t feel ill and that I can actually continue and I will be fine.

Have you also ever been in that situation when once you have actually gone ahead with something that your not so sure about at the beginning then once you have done it you ask yourself ‘why was I so worried about that?’ Yep well thats my daily conversation with myself. This year I got invited to a festival. This to me was the scariest thing ever as there would be SO many people and so many things I wasn’t used to but I went through with it and was 100% loving life. I cannot wait for next year and to go again and again and again!

Moral of the story is, relax and give it a chance. If anything was to go wrong it can more than likely be sorted and you will 95% of the time be fine. You might surprise yourself and actually find something that you really enjoy that you didn’t know you would.

  1. First of all – well done you! It’s not easy to break through these barriers – not least cos we construct them to feel safe. The trick to growing is expanding the safety zone isn’t it? A while back I got thinking about habits and how we all go the same places all the time so I invented a 30 minute challenge for myself – here’s the post – http://heroesnotzombies.com/2013/04/02/the-30-minute-discovery-challenge/
    Enjoy!
    And you know something else? The more you challenge yourself, say yes and find that what you thought would be scary turned out not to be, the more your confidence will grow – and then a lot more things become a lot less scary!
