Fear and Strength

I hate trying new things.  I do.  It's a fact.  When pushed out of my comfort zone, I shut-down...I retreat.  I cower. 

It's SCARYYYY out if I don't HAVE to...I like to stay nice and cozy in my little area.

But....What does staying cozy get me...?  Besides warm feet...

Over the past 3 years, I have been forced out of my little cozy-zone....and into a position that I had very little confidence that I could be successful at...And to my surprise--I'm kinda loving it.

Some of you know, I am a manager at a very busy movie of THE MOST busiest theatres in the country!!  I juggle scheduling, hiring, firing, training, and all the details of making sure your movie plays smoothly on the big screen.  I never - in a MILLION YEARS thought I would be capable of this kind of job...But, yet here I am.

Out of this fear I had, came this amazing strength and confidence...!!  Ask my hubby...I have changed, and grown, despite my resistance -- And there was a LOT of resistance!

What have I learned during this process..?  To STRETCH beyond myself!  To take a leap of faith and do something that pushes me....!  That's the ONLY way, I'm going to grow!

Just  doooo iiiitttt!

***I am launching this blog again...I know that it has slowly died, and I'm incredibly sad about it...My goal is to blog AT LEAST once a week...and try to build it back up.  I have a lot to talk about--So many things have happened--So get ready NF world...Kristi is BACK!

Thrive On!


  1. Congrats, glad you are overcoming, look forward to seeing more of your posts. Our daughter has NF1 and two brain tumors related to NF1. Her first was found when she was 2 yrs old, an optic nerve glioma and her second in July of 2016, which she underwent two craniotomies one in 7-2016 and the other was 2-2017( a 7.5 hour surgery) and she still has a 1.7mm inoperable portion. She amazes me daily with her strength and happy spirit! So we're cheering you on, "You Go Girl!"

  2. Thank you for restarting!
