Day 156

Thoughts:

Today at Toastmasters, I gave a speech themed around leaving your comfort zone. In the spirit of the theme, I sought out as many performance firsts as I felt physically capable of doing in one go.

So at one point, I laid down on the ground. At another, I shared some of my most intimate fears and secrets. And I wrapped it all up with a rap performance. (It was all much more organized than it sounds)

The level of vulnerability I reached in this speech dwarfed all others. I was shaking the whole time. But I survived. And with this experience under my belt, I will have so much more creative space in my next speech. I don’t have to rap? Psh, piece of cake.
