As much as I usually embrace getting out of my comfort zone, there are times when I become a little hesitant.
Last night my husband and I were given the opportunity to see Newsies, a touring Broadway musical. Although I was looking forward to going out on a date, I got apprehensive about a couple of things.
First, I wasn't sure what to wear. It's been so long since I've been to the Orpheum Theater in Omaha that I started this internal debate with myself as to what would be appropriate. I wanted to wear leggings, but I didn't think it would be nice enough. I wasn't really in the mood to wear a dress but felt like I should. I knew I didn't want to wear dress pants.
Ugh! I didn't need that kind of stress. Seriously, if I was going to a hockey game (much more my style), I would throw on my team apparel, either jeans or leggings with boots, and I would have been good to go.
The second apprehensive moment came from the event itself. I am not into musicals, not even one bit. I find them to be way over the top and overacted.
However, I put on my big girl pants (or in this case my dress) and off we went. As you can probably guess, we had a fabulous evening. I should have never stressed out over what to wear, because there was such a variety. Even though there was still overacting, the choreography and music were pretty awesome. The best part, of course, was that Jack and I got out to do something different.
I realized once again that I need to get out of my comfort zone more often to try new and different activities. This was just the beginning.
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
