After attending the Step It Up live workshop with Melissa Ambrosini and Christian Miranda over the weekend I was inspired to get right back into journaling.
I used to write in a diary when I was a teenager about everything I was going through and how I felt, but the difference with that and now is I want to write down all the positive things in my life and to note down 3 things each day that I am thankful for even on the shitty days!
"Look on the bright side of life they say...and I will do!
I decided to head off and treat myself to a nice snazzy journal. I went to Kiki-K in Moonee Ponds which would give me a chance to grab a coffee and a muffin from my favourite café in that area, Fuel.
On my way back down Puckle Street to my car I walked past Fuel and decided that I am going to go in and sit down and enjoy my coffee and muffin...all by myself!
I have always wanted to do this, have a coffee on my own but I was always too scared; I don't know what I was scared of. Maybe what people thought, being alone, I don't know! So I took a deep breath, walked into the café and ordered my coffee and muffin to 'have here'.
I went and found a nice little table next to the window and sat down, got out my new journal and wrote about that very moment that I was out of my comfort zone. I felt amazing and liberated!
Why was I scared of this? It is such a peaceful feeling...just being with me! I enjoyed my coffee and orange and poppy seed muffin, wrote in my journal and headed off home with a big smile on my face.
They say life begins at the end of your comfort zone and it is so true, I felt happy accomplishing something I was scared of and I will definitely be having a coffee on my own again. I know it isn't a big thing to some people but it doesn't matter because it was to me and that is all that matters.
What have you recently done that was out of your comfort zone? I would love to hear about it, share in the comments box below!
Be happy & healthy,
