Interview: You can't do that, You're not good enough!

This year for me has been a year of pushing some serious boundaries! Stepping outside of my comfort zone, and doing things I never thought I'd do (not just now, but maybe in the distant future). I made a decision to collaborate with other professionals within their fields, I started making weekly youtube videos, said yes to contributing to a new online magazine, Styling on photoshoots for up and coming brands, Dyed my hair blue/green, you name it I said 'YES'.

Be Confident in yourself

The thing is, you would agree, it takes confidence to do what I've done right? But if you REALLY know me, then you will know when I'm super nervous I don't clam up, oh no that would be the correct thing to do! Nope, I develop a case of 'Verbal Diahorrea'. My mouth opens and a torrent of words fall out, my voice goes up a few octaves and I - can't -stop - my - self! Even the little people in the control centre (brain) can't shut me down! They try everything, emergency panic button, faint switch, the lot. Nothing works! Now, you may be having a giggle at my expense but I'm telling you it is terrifying - For who? I don't know, but I feel ridiculous after!

Laughter is great for the soul

But what about the other side? The dark side. The part that always seems to rear it's ugly little head whenever you're too close to your 'Comfort Zone' boundary! That voice that tells you you're not good enough, you can't wear that you're too fat! You can't get that job, you're not good enough! He/she won't date you, you're not pretty enough! That dark side, that always wants to keep us in check.
