I went on a stand-up comedy workshop today over in Robin Hood country. I saw it as a good opportunity to continue pushing myself out of my comfort areas.

It was exciting, enthralling and nerve-racking altogether.

When I was driving back from Nottingham I realised one thing – just how difficult it can be to continuously find opportunities to increase confidence, especially when you’re really busy.

Daily life can become very comfortable, too comfortable. We get set in patterns and certain ways of doing things. How much they enable us to grow as a person I have serious doubts about.
