Outside of my Comfort Zone

When I first started this blog back in January, it was so far outside of my comfort zone to share what I wrote. The first time I posted a blog my palms were sweaty, my heart was racing and then I thought "What if nobody even reads it anyway?" It may sound counter-intuitive but that thought worked...I wanted people to read my blog but if they didn't, oh well...I could save face if I really sucked at writing.

The past six months of writing this blog, and then adding Perfect Mamas Confess, has been an exercise taking me out of where I'm comfortable. I'm glad I'm here...outside of my comfort zone. I've grown and learned and become more comfortable in pushing myself more and more to do something just a little scary. I may not be perfect at what it is I am trying but at least I'm pushing myself out there a little more and a little more.

One day, because I pushed outside of my comfort zone, I'll be exactly where I want to be ~ a published author! How much fun would that be? My name on the front of a book. Zach says he can totally see my name gracing the front of a book. He says there are so many authors out there with hyphenated names...mine would fit right in! Dang ~ if all takes is a hyphenated last name I should have been published 18 years ago!

I'm glad the kids see me taking steps, albeit baby steps, to pursue my love of writing. Hopefully, they will be better at taking good risks as they grow up.

Oh, for the love of my children....
