Last night, I did just as the title said, I stepped outside of my comfort zone. I have been having a bit of cabin fever with my nursing issues with Liam and was craving some social interaction. I left Liam with daddy for a couple hours (scary!) and went to a Tweet Up.
What is a Tweet Up? Exactly as it sounds, a bunch of Twitter folk meeting up. It’s a great way to meet people you interact with daily on Twitter, if you are an addict like me. The scary part is that although I’ve talked to these people online, I’m shy when meeting people in real life.
While I felt slightly awkward and uncomfortable, I had a great time making new friends and putting faces to Twitter handles. I even survived being in the ‘hot seat’, a game in which a random attendee was chosen to answer a handful of random questions. I HATE being put on the spot but I survived and even managed to impress some people with the answer to who the most famous person you’ve ever met was (Lady Gaga).
After two hours of mixing and mingling, I was ready to head home to my family. I was glad that I went even though it meant being that shy awkward girl, and that I had to be away from Liam. I feel that the uncomfortable situations help make you stronger and braver and everyone needs to step outside of their comfort zone every once in awhile.
When was the last time you stepped outside of your comfort zone?
