A while ago I wrote about the new upcoming blog series, including something about ‘trying new things’. But I didn’t write a lot about it. That has one reason: I wanted to make a different introduction post about it. Otherwise, the other post would be way too long.
Trying new things
So before I got my burn-out/anxiety/panic attacks, I was different. I like the way I am now, but there is something missing. Because the ‘old’ me was not afraid to step out of my comfort zone. I would travel to another country for a concert, I would run 5k without training, I was acting in music videos. You get the idea. I wasn’t afraid. But because of my burn-out, my comfort zone became smaller and smaller. And that gave me the idea to step out of my comfort zone and make my comfort zone a little bit bigger.
Also, there was this student who made a list of 100 fears and she faced them in just 100 days. Every single day another fear. Not going to do that, but that also gave me a lot of inspiration.
What kind of things?
Think about ice skating, kart racing, trying new foods, travel by myself to another city. Because sometimes there are things I want to do, but I don’t do them because it is way out of my comfort zone. And you know what they say: “life begins at the end of your comfort zone. “
I’ve made a list of a few things I want to do in the future:
– Ice Skating
– Zip lining (done this before, but I love doing it)
– Kart racing
– Random acts of kindness
– Write an (e)book
– Go alone to a random city
But I am also going to try some Pinterest challenges or things. For example, I heard someone talking about yoga for your eyes and that can improve your eyesight. So that is also a thing I am going to try. Because I want to know if it really works.
