Do you ever do things you're not especially comfortable doing, only to find that the results are more than you could ever have hoped for?
That has happened to me a few times lately. For example...
Not wanting to leave the house after a loooong day at work, but dragging myself to go-go dance practice anyway... and loving the evening full of laughter and shimmies. So much better than an evening on the couch.
Reluctantly getting on a Greyhound to see a friend I've only ever met through her blog... I'm not usually a meet-new-people kind of girl. But it was such a fun afternoon of lunching, antique browsing, and chatting. So glad I got on the bus!
