You Find Peace With Your Work Through Tension

In: Confidence, Creating, Creativity,

It's never as scary as it seems.

Everything you're worried about happening? Won't.

It might seem intimidating, the world—putting yourself out there, taking the chance, trying something new, going all in, showing up, asking for help, connecting with strangers, and, ultimately, gambling your ego and everything you know to be true.

There will be a lot of resistance that pulls you in the other direction. Stay small. Curl up. Stay comfortable. Why make the effort when you don't have to?

The thing about comfort zones, however, is that they're only comfortable for so long. The longer you stay in them, the more uncomfortable they become.

We're with our very first (amazing!) VIP client today, here in London (be sure to follow my Instastories to watch behind the scenes photo shoots and more!) and frankly, it was a risk doing a new thing in a new city where none of us have our footing. Is this a good idea? A bad one? Will it be easy, doing an event in a country none of us knows? And yet, the moment she showed up to the doorstep of our London flat, and we hugged and jumped and embraced like school girls, every single worry melted.

You find peace with your work through tension.

You find relief in yourself through uncertainty.

And sometimes, the best form of comfort comes in knowing that you don't need it anymore.
