The Time is Now | Stepping Out of Our Comfort Zones...

I did something really gutsy.
At least, well, for me. 
It's been since freshman year of college that I have been in a play.
Last week, I auditioned for a play, a musical to be exact.
I still don't know if I made it, but to be honest, I don't really care. 
I did the hard part: I auditioned.
I felt really out of practice and quite uncomfortable. But I did it. I stepped out of my comfort zone, which I am continuously working on (hello fashion posts! Woo) and took a chance. It felt really good. 
My life is quite insane…being in 4 weddings in a month, teaching full time, being actively involved with the young women with my church….and don't forget about softball and exercise program I'm on…but I couldn't shake this feeling that I wanted to get on stage. That I needed to perform. Or, well, at least try. I felt this nagging feeling to do something that gave me something to look forward to! I felt stuck. I felt like I was doing the same routine over and over. And, well, since I am a spontaneity buff and adventuresome soul, I did what not many people can do, I stood and sang and let people judge me. 
It was really hard. I haven't done that in a long time.
But I am proud of myself for taking this little step. 
I don't know if I made a lead role, but I received a call back last night. Which, in a way, is a huge step. 
I am a true believer in doing things for yourself. For living a life that you want. And to live that life RIGHT NOW. The time is now to do what you have been afraid to do. The time is now to live out your dreams. Are you scared of something but really want to try? At least try. I feel invigorated. 
And that, my friends, is a good feeling. 
Step out of your comfort zone. You'll feel that way too. 

With my audition, I had to turn in some headshots. 
Speaking of comfort zones and taking chances NOW, I decided to let you guys see some of my close up face and my head shorts. 
Boo ya. 

So, let me ask you: 


  1. Good for you! I'm inspired! Also...gorgeous headshots..absolutely gorgeous!

  2. That is so great! I went to a couple "girls nights" with girls I didnt really know and it scared the crap out of me and my heart was pounding the whole time but I did it!

  3. Good for you! Love that you are taking bold chances. Hoping you make it though.

  4. Did you take your own headshots?? Because they're pretty darn great!

  5. i love my comfort zone, i dont like stepping out of it. but we all must at some point

  6. You're such a babe! I'm so proud of you for going out for something like that. I've always wanted to be in a musical but I'm too afraid to try out!

  7. Keep up the good work on this! I've been realizing the benefits of stepping out of your comfort zone and it's amaze how much a good challenge allows you to grow. Fingers crossed you made the musical - and even if you didn't, it was still a good risk that eased you back into something you once loved!


Leave some love!
