JUMP out of your comfy place!

Man, I know how hard this one can be. I have always been in introvert, and the shyest person you could ever meet. Talk to people? I would turn as red as a tomato. Hang out with friends? sure, but I would be the one to sit back and just observe everyone else. Raise my hand in class? NEVER and I mastered avoiding eye contact in hopes of not being called on. Any possibility of having attention on me, you bet your ass I avoided like my life depended on it.


I was asked to join my cousins team and start a small side hustle.... I was hesitant as hell! I figured if anything, I would just join to support her a little, and get a good discount on products. She would ride my ass non-stop to go live, or talk on my story, or host a team call. I made one excuse after another, until I didn't. I hosted my first team call with sweat in every crevasse and then some, I stumbled over my words and as per usual when im nervous, I over salivate, so I pretty much drool like a teething toddler while talking way too fast. BUT, I actually liked it. I liked using my voice to help others.


So I figured, if something that uncomfortable, isn't really that terrifying at all, what else could not be as bad as I thought? So I went on to talk on my story. Don't get me wrong, it took well over an hour because I kept having to retake it, and fix my hair and change my wording and nit-pick myself lol, but I was having fun every time I did it.. but even more, I was getting such positive feedback. CONFIDENCE BOOST! So I was finally getting comfortable being uncomfortable and I was having fun doing it. But then something unexpected caught my attention....


I wasn't the same person anymore. I was experiencing tremendous amounts of personal growth and it was beautiful! I found myself saying hello to strangers way more than I used to, not staring at the floor when I walked, (yes, that was me, watching me feet walk me around), but the most important growth I saw in myself, was my voice. I wasn't afraid to use it, to speak my mind, my truth and to help others. My story is so full of good and bad dark and twisted and anything crazy you can think of. And being confident enough to finally share it with others whom it may help, has been so fulfilling.


Im definitely not proud of some of my choices I've made, but I have learned to own them because every choice I have made, has brought me right here, to this blog, to all of you. So ive learned to find the lesson in everything. Be it good or bad situation. And every time I am finding myself uncomfortable with something, I find a way to get comfy with it.


Not going to lie, I still struggle like f***ing crazy when it comes to opposite sex interactions, but im working on it. LOL. Sometimes getting comfy happens instantaneously, sometimes, it takes a while (a loooong damn while) but the reward far outweighs the risk every time!


So babe!


Wear that outfit you've been too nervous to wear because of what others will think

Embrace the fear of the unknown

Pick up a new hobby you've been thinking you'd suck at, you won't!

Say hi to the next stranger you see and be sure to make eye contact!

Speak your truth, whether anyone accepts it or not

Get a tattoo

Get a piercing

Chop your hair, it will grow back

Go skydiving

Make a career move

Tell they guy/girl/person how you feel

Ask for help (this is a big one, too many people are too proud or shy to ask, just do it)


Just a short list of ideas of what some of us are uncomfortable with.... But I know there is so much more, so if you need some help finding a way to make the JUMP, message me.... barenakedblogger@gmail.com and I'd love to help you find a way to get comfy being uncomfy!
