Just Do It
During my holiday in Corfu there were 4 times where I was in a situation where I thought, shall I shan’t I, it’s that split second moment of believing in yourself, in your self worth, your confidence and ability. The decision can be a catalyst for further out of comfort zone risky adventures.
The first situation was at the beginning of the holiday, Kathy was asked to read out the itinery for the week ahead infront of everyone at the poolside, she had lost her voice and suggested me, I said yes immediately although I was nervous. Ian wrote down everything that I had to say about the forthcoming events, but I added a few little adlibs that I had previously thought of, at one point I sang a bit of a song to identify one of the artists, everyone laughed.
On another occasion I approached a group of guys who were chatting because I was a bit bored, which lead to going on a couple of days bike rides and a scooter ride, I had the best time ever and call them the 5 Rs because all their names began with R, we all had such fun, loads of laughs, new friendships and bonding that feels like will last forever. The experience and adventure was the highlight of my holiday.
We went on a boat trip to the Blue Lagoon, we were all singing and dancing being sprayed with foam, Infact there’s a video on my wall, we approached the beautiful aqua blue lagoon area where we could dive and swim, first of all I thought yes I’m going in but I’m not getting my hair wet, I’m a bit of a wimp sometimes, but knew really I would have more fun if I did, I swam and walked up to the diving platform I wanted to dive in but was a bit scared, in that moment I thought oh just do it as I love diving and swimming, I dived in and it felt wonderful, we saw loads of silver blue fish swimming around too, very clearly with goggles.
The penultimate day we went to Maria’s Famous Karaoke Pub, an impulse to sing came over me, again felt scared, told Kathy she encouraged me, so
I did it and had an amazing experience singing the Summer of 69.
All the above experiences were an in the moment choice, and maybe a few years ago I would have gone the other way of saying no I’m too scared. If I had, in the above situations I would have missed out on so much fun and never to be forgotten experiences.
So in that split second moment where you have the choice:-
Feel the fear and do it anyway
Know you are always good enough
Create indestructible self belief
Feel your self worth
Know you are backed by the Universe
Follow your heart
JUST DO IT
Here’s to a fantastic Friday
