It dawned on me over the weekend that I’d “done it.”
Taken a huge risk and it’s now paying off.
9 months ago I remember thinking to myself…
“What if no one thinks it’s a good idea? What if it’s a flop and I just get rejected?”
Everyone hates rejection right?
But sometimes you just got to have a crack and back yourself.
And sometimes, like this time, it pays off and in a big way!
The risk I took was reaching out and seeing if 5 other women (who didn’t know each other) wanted to join me on a crazy adventure in New Zealand.
5 days of trekking carrying our own packs and food whilst dealing with the elements.
I knew a few women would be interested, but getting a total of 5 committed was a little daunting.
Fast forward to today and different personalities, stages of life, work commitments and lifestyles have all blended into an eclectic mix of women, that seems to be working for us!
Fear can be such a strong emotion and the more I’ve felt it in my life, the more I’ve grown to respect it.
And the older I get, the more I realise fear will never go away – it will always be there especially when I want to try something new, or do something again, that I couldn’t do the first time.
It’s a real thing.
But you can’t let it stop you – life is way too short.
Feel the fear and do things anyway, I say.
You never know where it will take you.
