Adventurous Life Tip: Do Something That Scares You


a drink to calm my nerves
This weekend, I did something I’d never done before. My heart was racing, my stomach was doing flips and I couldn’t stop smiling. But in the end (and a Jack and Coke later), I pulled myself together just in time to…

…karaoke! In a bar full of strangers! Singing in public might not be a big deal for some people, but for someone like me who finds public speaking nerve-racking… What a rush! I sang a Sublime song (but only because I didn’t notice they had Ace of Base until later) and felt breathless and giddy.

To my own surprise, I had so much fun that I did it again! Group karaoke is definitely the way to go for hesitant first-timers 🙂 Now that I remember how exhilarating it is to do new things outside my comfort zone, I want to do it more often just to shake things up!

Do you ever do things that scare you? When was the last time you surprised yourself? I’d love to hear and be inspired.
