Out of My Comfort Zone, Right into the Spotlight

When was the last time you really left your comfort zone?

I’m not sure why, but I’ve found myself outside my comfort zone quite a lot this year and next weekend I will find myself there again.

This time with a microphone in my hand, standing in the spotlight.

Holy crap!

The studio where I work is celebrating its 5th Anniversary of being in business with a huge party and a talent show. It’s being billed as It’s All Yoga‘s Got Talent!

Staff and students are coming together for one night to showcase their hidden-until-now talents.

I laugh because in my case, “talent” may be a bit of a stretch. I’ll be singing along to a song with my sweetheart while he plays guitar.  He’s the real musician in our house and I’m totally riding on his coattails.

I chose the song {if you want to know you’ll have to come to the show!} and I’ll just say sometimes doing something outside your comfort zone can help expand the boundries of your comfort zone.

What scares you? 

Do  you typically face your fears or avoid them?

How do you feel when faced with a fear?

What do you do with those feelings?

PS – You are all invited to the party {and to showcase your talent too}. If you’d like to come by, please RSVP so we know how much bubbly we need. I’m putting in my order for a bottle now!

  3. Oh, and always, you make me want to blog. Thank you for that. I hope I get off my ass (well, stay on my ass, since I sit to type) and do it today.

  4. WOWZA WOWZA WOWZA!! So awesome!! You will be fantastic!! Pics and video would be fabulous!! Does this mean you will sing some karaoke if that is part of a future outing? I hope so!

  5. Hats off to both of you two, you’re better people than I.

    You’ll be among friends so that should keep the pressure off – its just the idiot that will put the whole thing on YouTube you have to worry about :)

  6. oh my god, that IS what the mic is going to look like!

    i feel you, sister. i’m going to have diarrhea all week just thinking about it!!

    of course i can look at you and go, NO, you’re gonna be GREAT and besides, it’s all for FUN anyway, RIGHT?

    (but when it comes it me, it’s all serious and Music Awards Show… so I get it.)

    LOTS of bubbly. i can streak during your performance if you want me to distract people. that would actually be less mortifying than singing (i’m laughing as i type this…) if you’ll do the same for me.
