Now leaving your comfort zone.

Traveling is hard for me. There, I said it.

I know everyone loves it, and there are many aspects of it that I like. But truthfully, traveling brings up a lot of anxiety for me. Not just anxiety...physical anxiety. To the point of interruption. For years, I was ashamed of this...kind of still am. But I am trying to accept this, and that's easier because I know where all the anxiety stems from.

Even though it's tough, I made baby steps...a big stride, actually. I spent more than a week in Hilton Head, SC. It was beautiful and blissful. And despite a little anxiety, I was okay.

There's something to be said about throwing yourself into a situation and just dealing with it instead of anticipating all the things that could go wrong. Here's what's to be said: It's not that easy at all.

I think you have to get to a certain point where you can take that step of faith. It doesn't' just happen even though everyone says "Just Do It" like they're from Nike and it's not a big deal. It is a big deal.

Very grateful for the time in paradise and memories made. It was nice to get away, and I'm looking forward to being able to get away any time I want, even if I can't go away. It's all about balance, and perspective.
