As I have been thinking about lessons that I want to make sure my kids learn and how I can be an example of them, I thought of some of the insecurities I have. Last week I attended SNAP, a blogging conference for DIY blogs. For about a month before coming (okay maybe 3) I just kept telling myself that I didn’t need to go. I kept telling my husband that I thought I would just stay home and he kept telling me I needed to go. I am a little shy going into new territories in life and always have been, but I also know that I have gotten along with just about every single person I have ever met, so I knew it would be another great experience. When I finally just decided that this was happening, I dove in. As I entered the Little America hotel the first night to check in, I was lucky enough to instantly get a quick hug from Jen and Jodie at eighteen25 and Mique from 30 days. I knew the next few days would be amazing. And they were. I felt inspired and understood and connected with so many amazing women and brands that I know were just meant to happen. So the lesson:
I’ve always known that the greatest growth that I have ever experienced are in the moments where I am most uncomfortable. Being brave is my new goal. I’m keeping it on my phone, so each time I open it it stares at me.
I hope you find some moments to be brave and just go for it.
