Why do we do this to ourselves?

Remember that first day of high school or college? Nervous. Excited. Anxious. Hopeful that you'll fit in.
Phew! Got over that one.
Here we go again. Remember that first day on the job. That new job that you spent tons of time and worry that you nailed the interview and celebrated when you got the job offer. I remember that. Nervous. Excited. Anxious. Hopeful that this will be a long successful career.
Time goes on and you're good with that one.
But that's not enough. We do it again. Over and over (for most of us anyway).
Remember that first day at the first horse show you've ever been to. Newness. Feeling like a 'grade 9ner' all over again. Nervous. Excited. etc. You get the picture. But can you feel that feeling in your stomach as you recall your experiences?
That's the feeling of steeping out of your comfort zone for what we hope will be a successful result. And experience has shown that sometimes it works our well and sometimes it doesn't. But that's life.
I just started a big adventure. I'll talk about it later if it works out. :) But right now I'm nervous. Excited. Anxious and yes a bit queasy in the stomach.
I've won many horse showing awards in my day and yet I still get that feeling when I start a new big - out of my comfort zone - projects or adventures. Sure keeps us going!
Hope you have many successful adventures in and our of the show pen!
