I'll Try It: Beauty blogger tries extreme pogo sticking (VIDEO)
How often do you get out of your comfort zone? You know, that nervous, curious, "hold your breath not knowing what to expect" feeling.
For better or for worse, when I reflect on my 20s, I realize that I always seem to get comfortable, and then most of the time without realizing it get out of my comfort zone again. Too comfortable in my job, then I decide to open my own business. Been doing the same workout for too long, try something completely new that requires a new skill. Wearing the same long hair for a while, cut it all off. Staying in the same city for too long, up and move to a new city where I know no one.
Sometimes I do it because I know the only way to grow and improve is to step out again and make a change. It is scary, but it's thrilling and challenging (in a good way), too.
I had the opportunity to partner up with Crocs and SheKnows to do something I've never done before. Can we say #ExtremePogoSticking? Who has ever thought about that? I know I hadn't! Check out the video above to see if I could actually do it... (Spoiler alert: it's way harder than it looks... ) and check out the adorable Crocs sandals I got to wear!
The message of the experience is a good one: Try something that scares you. Keep trying over and over and over again. And when the going gets tough, don't give up. I want to challenge you: Whether it's big or small, #FindYourFun and get out of your comfort zone!
