  2. Day 25 Yesterday was pretty good. I like the feeling of excitement for change. I love the process of challenging myself. Especially right now that I'm trying to be out of my comfort zone everyday, it really gives me extra energy to go through my day. Today I have a trial singing class. I'm at the same time excited and scared. I'm not at all used to sing in front of other people. But I was told before, multiple times, that I have a good voice. Let's see what happens.

  6. Day 23 I've been reflecting on how easy it is to fall in the comfort zone. We really gotta push our limits in order to see significant changes in our lives, but most of the times you relax and slow down exactly because the comfort zone is so convenient. Although I've been doing many things to better my life, I don't think I'm pushing my comfort zone enough. My lifelong problem revolves around social situations: public presentations, meeting new people, and other stuff. It's not that I can't talk to people, but I don't have charisma. I can't "charm" people. I get nervous in situations where I shouldn't. This shit affects my job, my relationship with my SO, my relationship with my family, basically everything. I have perfect awareness that in order to get better, I gotta put myself in uncomfortable situations. That's the only way. I gotta get daily exposure to every uncomfortable situation so that they become comfortable. So tomorrow I'm starting a plan to get exposure to these situations everyday by climbing a "fear ladder" (something I found out in google). It's gonna be hell, but I'm gonna get through it. I scheduled on Friday a trial class in a singing school that I found out the other day. That's an extra, and it's certainly gonna be uncomfortable, but fuck it. I wanted to learn how to sing for a long time and it's gonna better my voice.

  7. Hey @Zenrenn, welcome back! Contratulations on your son! Must be a big surprise having a son out of a sudden but maybe he is gonna transform your life! From my experience, journaling is a good way to track your progress and hold yourself accountable, so I highly recommend you start a diary. So, once again, welcome back!

I gotta get used to have genuine interest in other persons. And to tell the truth, I am interested. I'm just REALLY complacent in this aspect.

  11. Nice! That would be a huge step out of my comfort zone, and I've been avoiding that intentionally. But I'm sure it would make wonders to my public speaking skills.
  12. That literally put a smile in my face. Glad to hear that! Good luck in this journey!
  13. Hey, nice job fighting the urges man! And this is the best output you can get from this situation. Our brains try to convince us that relapsing is ok, but as soon as you relapse you regret it immediately. Try to wipe this ideas from your head and keep forward!
  14. Objectives for the day - Get a good guitar practice - Broke the streak today, didn't pick the guitar. Tomorrow I gotta compensate that. - Search some music/acting schools - Done. I have a experimental class scheduled for next week. - Do the laundry - Done Gratitude journal - I'm grateful for the weekend - I'm grateful for my fears that push me to change - I'm grateful for another day to do better than yesterday
  15. Day 21 Didn't have time to journal yesterday again, ugh. Actually I had time, I just wasn't organized enough to stop and journal. So, today was a pretty normal day. Went to work, everything went fine. After that I went to the gym and then home. It was/is raining quite a bit, so my travel was canceled. I guess I have to figure out what I'm gonna do this weekend, especially in a rainy day. Thinking about it right now, I gotta start planning my weekends ahead of time. Like planning a tour to a place where I never been before in my city (museums, parks, touristic attractions, random events, etc). I think I'm gonna dedicate maybe 1 hour of my week to planning that, it should be good. My guitar practice was really weak yesterday, but I least I picked it up. Today I'm gonna focus on getting a good practice and get some good progress going.
