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!
