The past few days have been a complete roller coaster ride!
I’ve cried, danced, skipped, jumped, screaaaamed and sobbed. It’s been insane! In fact, I don’t quite think I can articulate how amazingly insane things have been.
Let me take you back to a few days ago when I heard that Marie Forleo was giving away a scholarship for her flagship programme, RHH B-School. For three years I’d wanted to take part in the programme but it seemed like a distant dream.
To enter the contest, I had to face one of my biggest fears- being on camera. I am THE most camera shy person ever. In fact I’m one of the shyest people I know so being on camera is completely out of my comfort zone.
Despite my whole body being filled with nerves, I decided to face my fear and just do it. I poured my heart into my video and shared my story.
I realised now that my nerves stemmed not from looking the camera in the eye but from the feeling of vulnerability that comes with being on camera. Putting yourself out there isn’t easy. It takes bravery, courage and heart.
The biggest thing I learned from posting up my video was that your fears are never as scary as you think they are! Fear is irrational, silly and it doesn’t make sense.
Fear is also totally normal and natural. The virtue of it being normal means that it, like any other natural thing, comes and goes. We can’t help feel it but we can confront it and choose to not let it paralyse us.
I know now that when you face your fears they dissipate and that is a great thing!
Isn’t it amazing what you can learn in a few days?
I want to thank you for supporting me. I was completely and utterly flawed by the level of support and encouragement that I received. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
From the tweets to the Facebook posts and emails, the support was amazing and I am forever grateful.
I’m determined to make the most of this opportunity, to work harder than I’ve ever worked and to make My Curls an awesome business that transforms lives.
March is just around the corner and I have so much planned for the next few months. I’m super excited and am forever grateful.
