[uncomfortablesituations2020.wordpress.com] “My name is Carly and I am only slightly terrified to be doing this”

Hi there! My name (as the title suggests) is Carly. I want this year to be a year of growth for me. I am aware that it is mid-April, but with school and the world kind of ending, I am just now finding time to write my first post. I am writing this blog for me, myself, and I. But if I meet some cool people along the way, that would be dope.

The reason I started this blog was pretty simple. I was sitting in a social media marketing class at Brigham Young University. That specific day we had a panel of social media influencers joining us. I was very inspired by what they were saying; “Find out what you are passionate about, and make that the center of all you do,” and “Be authentic,” and “Create value.” I just didn’t know how to begin. So with a little courage, (a motto of mine for a few years has been: “Sometimes all it takes is 20 seconds of insane courage”) I approached the panelists after class.

Danielle, from @todaysthebestday on Instagram, gave me one simple task. She told me to go home that night and do a “brain dump.” Take 60 seconds to write down everything that brings me joy and makes me feel alive. Once the minute was over, circle the top three things and start a blog about one of the topics. I did this exercise nearly two months ago, so I am unable to find the list, but I know that “Getting out of my comfort zone” was in my top three passions.

So here I am. This blog is where I plan on writing the crazy, wild, embarrassing, silly, sad, heart-breaking, experiences I have in 2020 as I strive to leave my comfort zone. I whole-heartedly believe this will be a life-changing project for me. I am excited (and only slightly terrified) to be open, authentic, and raw with myself and anyone who happens across this blog. This will all be a learning process, but that’s what leaving your comfort zone is all about: learning and progressing.


Hi Carly 🙂

What kind of uncomfortable situations do you have planned? 😛

BTW: WP has TONS of bells + whistles — “tags” are a good place to start, and then also try out the customizer … like try adding a “tag cloud” widget. You can email me if you want / need help / tips … and / or search for video tutorials @ wordpress.tv 😉

There’s a lot we can learn or be grateful for from these experiences (of things we regret from our past), and we don’t even know it until we change our mindset as we reflect on them

Keywords: Regular Blog Posts

And when we do, we can move on more freely and be better prepared for the future. Without further ado, here are some of my past regrets:
