But after that first wave of elation, I felt a sense of nervousness, even anxiety, creeping up. Today was the day I had prepared so well for! Why did I feel anxious? As I tried to get some clarity, I received a text message from my friend, Croix, who had taken his first tap dancing class the day before.
Sharma I recently arrived in my new home city of New Orleans. I have to consciously keep embracing this expansion. When I first arrived here I felt that feeling of love and happiness I get when I travel to places that truly feel special.
A warm, humid breeze blew past my face when I stepped out of my car. As I was being checked into my house, some neighbors came out to let my landlord know her car was blocking their driveway. They all knew each other, so the exchange was friendly, and it ended with them saying they were having a party that night for an engagement.
You want me to come? But they meant it. They really did invite me, an unknown and random person, to the engagement party they were throwing for a friend. I went home and I knew I had to go.
It made me nervous, as I would be showing up to a private event alone, without any chance of bumping into a friendly face. There would be no buffers. I had to go because it would be uncomfortable.

I descended on them and introduced myself with a firm handshake. I had an okay time talking to them. There was no magic. Eventually they saw some other people they knew and I was abandoned.
Everyone at the table was talking to someone but me. I knew at this point my presence was weird. But you know what?
No one has ever died from being uncomfortable. So I just rolled with it. I sipped my drink, looked around, and considered if I should stay or go.This was all daunting to me, but this was a year I knew I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and so I applied.

Testing out different techniques and effects hoping that something will eventually evolve into your perfect aesthetic? For a while I was sort of in denial of "my thing.
