Comfort Zones Smashed...Again

Whenever you feel uncomfortable, instead of retreating back into your old comfort zone, pat yourself on the back and say, “I must be growing,” and continue moving forward.” – T. Harv Eker


Another comfort zone smashed again. I received a call late on Saturday evening to appear on a very popular morning radio programme. I was apprehensive as I do not consider myself an expert on the topic of "Girls Sex Ed in Schools" the producer told me to share my views.

So, I listened to the lessons that I have learnt on the journey to "show up as myself" 

At first I was a bit slow, I lost my train of thought, I thought that the ground would open up and swallow me, I paused, relaxed and got into it after! I did not let the slip deter me from not only showing up, but also having fun! And I did have fun.


Peace
