Do Something Everyday That Scares You...

This post is going to be slightly different from what I have previously been posting, it's more of a lifestyle & advice (almost) type of post.

I think life is all about making the most of the time that you have, seizing the opportunity and doing something that you have to push yourself to do. 
Some people are happy with a quite life, doing the same things every day, but for me I don't just think that's enough. I want to have something I am proud of, something I have worked hard for and something someone will remember me for. 

Doing things outside of your comfort zone is one of the most important things you could do in life. The feeling you get after you have achieved something you didn't think you could do is amazing!
I know for me I have recently started doing stuff that scares me. Everybody has different limits and fears, but finding something you are worried about doing and then making small steps towards doing it is such a great way to step outside of your comfort zone and broaden your horizons. 

I think more and more in my generation there is such a fear of doing something because people are worried what others will say. I even get this thought myself, even when creating this blog I had second guesses because of what others might think. I would seriously urge every person to stop caring what others think of you and do what makes you 100% happy!

Life isn't about impressing others or conforming to a stereotype that just doesn't describe you! You need to make sure you have fun and take on challenges. It's so easy to look at everything you already have going on and just think 'I don't have time' but you always have time, that's actually all we have! I mean, yeah I know our time isn't promised but why not make the most of the time you do have and do something positive with your life. 

I have only recently started taking risks I didn't have the courage to do 3 months ago. This doesn't happen over night and it has taken me a while to convince myself that all of these scary situations I am putting my self in will be worth it and will pay off! 

In the last few months I have started to do things based on what is best for me and what makes me happiest. Yes, some people might say that is me being selfish but I think it's important to be selfish sometimes, you have to look out for yourself in this world because people won't do it for you!
I can honestly say after making decisions I once questioned, I am now so happy and 100% thankful I made the choice I did!

I don't think anyone can make you do something you don't want too, but I do think that encouraging yourself is the best way to better yourself!
I think if I could encourage people to do anything, it would be to work hard to achieve something that you want to do even if it scares you! Especially if it scares you!

If you have done anything you are proud of or have overcome a fear and done something outside of your comfort zone then let me know!
