As I mentioned in yesterdays post where I linked up to Mama Kat’s Writers Workshop I am at it again today!
This is a long over due post! We are talking over a month overdue!
Here was the prompt:
1.) Write about a time you were forced to step out of your comfort zone.
First thought, May’s GLO Party
Really looked forward to it.
My first social media event.
Got business cards to hand out.
I posted about the new outfit I got to wear.
I nervously walked in, early.
Was greeted by friendly faces.
Found a quiet table, alone.
Made my way, slowly, to the sponsor tables.
Briefly spoke with a couple people.
Found another quiet corner, alone.
I sat & tweeted.
I noticed someone I had hoped to connect with.
She was at the other end of the bench I was sitting on.
I didn’t approach her.
I got a tweet from her asking if I was wearing my shoes.
Everyone who recognized me, recognized the shoes from my post.
The shoes were in my purse, blisters.
I replied I was sitting on her bench.
She yelled at me to slide over & join her.
Everyone was wonderfully delightful.
I was still feeling out of place.
I stuck it out.
Even if I felt like crying.
Cecily shared one of her prizes she won with others.
At the end my Hubby was waiting outside the doors for me.
With Krispy Kreme!
Scared, nervous & alone; I survived.
I didn’t mingle & connect like I had hoped.
I did step outside my box, my comfort zone.
Will I do it again? Yes.
