I wanted to share some pictures from the other night! So if you didn’t know, Las Vegas got a hockey team, of course we had to be like everyone else in town and become hockey fans. It was so fun!! Might be one of my favorite sporting events that I’ve gone too. Everyone gets so wild during the game and the energy in there is just awesome! We got pretty cheap tickets and were surprised how great the view was, highly recommend you go to a game at T-Mobile Arena if you are in the area.
What’s your favorite sporting event you’ve been to?! Also, I did a poll on Instagram about what my next post should be and almost everyone said a Monthly Favorites post, so keep your eye out for that this week!
I have been wanting to write about this for awhile now. Going out of my comfort zone is not something I am good at doing, but every time I do, I am so glad I did. For example starting this blog was going out of my comfort zone. Sharing parts of my life on here is something I am not use to, but I have absolutely loved this blogging journey and know I am going to love having these posts and videos to look back on.
I wanted to share my biggest experience with going out of my comfort zone and how many doors it has opened for me, in hopes that it inspires you to go out of your comfort zone as well!
At nineteen I moved to Las Vegas to finish my schooling. I left all my friends and family and decided to adventure on down here. Yes, it is only two hours away but it is a completely different environment, living and socially. I was going to be living in a city 10x bigger than what I was used to, starting a job with people who I didn’t know, going to school at a university that I didn’t know my way around, and having to get use to not being able to run to my parents house when I ran out of food. All of that was out of my comfort zone.
I get anxious going places that i’ve never been with people i’ve never seen. So I knew that this move was going to include a lot of situations where I had to come out of my comfort zone, which eventually started to excite me!
Now here is the story time, so grab a snack. When I first moved down here I started working within a couple of weeks. I met so many new people at work and ended up getting invited to a birthday party. I was so nervous. I didn’t know anyone that was going to be there, this was extremely out of my comfort zone. I had to be real with myself and get over my nerves and basically make myself go, because this is how I was going to make new friends. I ended up going and making tons of friends that I am still friends with. Stepping out of my comfort zone to go to the birthday party (which happened to be Dominic’s) led to me getting to know Dominic. It’s crazy to think that if I had chose to not go out of my comfort zone to go and meet new friends I could have missed out on dating my cute boyfriend!
This is a random post but I have come to the conclusion that if you never go out of your comfort zone you will miss out on so many opportunities to grow and meet new people who can change your life. There are so many times during this new adventure that I consider moving back home. I knew it would be so much cheaper, easier and less frightening but I am so glad I didn’t. I would have missed out on so many great experiences, new friends and the chance to grow!
If you’re still reading my rambling post, thanks! Hope you guys have a great day!
