It’s pretty crazy to look at the past week and see all that has changed.
I’ll be honest, I only got about two hours of sleep last Thursday night before my flight to Boston. I was worried about the new format of the workshop and the fact that I was doing this one completely solo.
You see, for the past workshop destinations I’ve had my trusty friend and event partner, Clara, working with me. Mr. Lively often traveled with me as well.
This time I was on my own. I had not met the workshop foodies, assistants, or participants before. I had no idea what to expect. I wasn’t even familiar with Boston.
With all the new and unfamiliar, I was a bit scared.
But I am so happy to have faced that fear! I now understand how simply incredible this new format truly is. I could have stuck with the past and things would have been okay. But I took a leap of faith, pushed myself out of my comfort zone, and was delighted.
Though I’m not generally someone who has let fear stop me in my career, this experience has underlined the belief that we should only fear not doing the things we may later regret not trying.
(Not sure if that phrase grammatically makes sense… but it does in my head.)
Had I not gone out on a limb and done the intimate group workshop travelling solo, I would never know how amazing this experience is for myself and the participants.
I would simply have spent my time wondering, “what if…”
This weekend, I hope to relish in the thought “that was simply amazing.”
Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great weekend!
