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 there....so 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 theatre...one 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!
