Doing new things scares me

Dear Reader,

I enjoy public speaking. I have learned to enjoy the sound of my own voice. It wasn’t always this way for me. In the early days I was scared to death every time I got up in front of a group. In the early days it was new, and new things scare me.

As I write this, I am preparing for the next Day Camp 4 Developers event. This year marks the 10 anniversary of DC4D. Even still, just before things get going, I still get nervous. Not the scared to death I used to get, but still, nervous enough to be uncomfortable.

I have come to welcome that feeling. That feeling tells me I am doing something new. It signals to me that I’m outside of my comfort zone.

Yes, it is scary, but it’s a good scary.

The great thing about a comfort zone, is getting outside of it.

Until next time,
I <3 |<
