Welcome to IHU!
Inner Hotshot University!
Happy Friday Y’All! Are you revved up and ready to ROAR? Now don’t hide from me, I’m not asking you to cure cancer today. I”m just asking you to think of one thing that you can do to stretch out of your comfort zone a bit. Just one little baby step or even a big huge step if you’re ready! This is your life journey ~ I’m just here to help you take that step.
Anyone can participate ~ and please do! Pass it along! This is just for fun!
1. Commit to something outside your comfort zone.
2. Comment below to tell us you’re participating!
3. Share your commitment for the week
(or if you don’t want to share, just tell us that you’re participating)!
4. Next Friday, we’ll compare notes on how it went!
5. Check FB The Presents of Presence Click here! for inspirational posts during the week.
6. Know that we are rooting for you! You’ve got peeps!
So I’ll start ~ it’s only fair, right? Ok, so my stretch out of my comfort zone for this week is that:
I’m going to say YES to opportunities that come my way!
Now let’s be clear here, I won’t do anything illegal, immoral or against my will (nor should you)! But I’ve gotten comfy just doing what I want to and what I feel like doing which isn’t always a good thing. For example, I’ve wanted to try Zumba and I have a friend who’s invited me to take a class with her numerous times, but something always comes up. This past week, I awoke with a migraine on Wednesday and had to cancel. Although I really wanted to go, I think that sometimes my mind plays tricks with me and gave me a migraine because I feared looking foolish in front of a class because I would be new and wouldn’t know the steps. In my fear of feeling foolish, I missed out on an opportunity to try something new, to giggle a bit, to get a bit of oxygen pumping with a little cardio and to enjoy time with my friend! Does this make sense to you? Have you self-sabotaged before and not even realized it? Am I the only one out there?
Because the younger me, wouldn’t have worried about looking foolish, I would have just jumped at the chance to dance and burn calories! I liked that Inner Hotshot who wasn’t afraid to try new things! So I’m going to go for it this week!
So what’s your Inner Hotshot going to do this week?
Remember you can either commit to doing one thing like trying something new (like a Zumba class) and/or you can commit to a change in your life (like saying Yes to opportunity)! Make sure it’s something that stretches you out of your comfort zone and puts a little fire in your belly! Since this is the first week, just enjoy the change in thinking. Don’t worry about what you choose ~ we don’t care here ~ we just want you to stretch your wings a bit ~ put a little Spring in your step!
~ Get back that Inner Hotshot ~
P.S. I just saw the Daily Prompt and thought I’d include it as it’s a bit similar ~ with all of your Presents of Presence peeps by your side cyberly, you are guaranteed not to fail! So now what are you going to do?
