If you’re paralyzed by a voice in your head
It’s the standing still that should be scaring you instead
Go on and
Do it anyway
– Ben Folds Five, Do It Anyway
Life is full of scary shit.
Have you ever had an opportunity to grow and learn, but your fear of the unknown stopped you from taking action? Or maybe you’ve tried something and failed, which then killed off any confidence you had in the first place?
It’s ok, we’ve all been there!
My name is Christina. I’ve undergone incredible personal changes over the last couple of years, from ending a 7-year relationship to quitting my job and living overseas.
Originally, this blog was about my adventures in CrossFit and exploring healthy recipes. But it’s since turned into something else. With each life challenge I faced, I found I was learning so much about myself I had to share it.
Because I knew I couldn’t be the only person going through these experiences, right?
I started in CrossFit in March 2013. I’m certainly no weightlifting ninja, but I’ve come a very long way both physically and mentally. Yes, I have a few friends who joke that it’s a cult, but I honestly haven’t done another form of physical activity that has challenged me and taught me about myself as much as CrossFit has. Even if you don’t do CrossFit, I hope these posts can help you to reflect on your own personal challenges and how to overcome them :)
In February 2014 I quit my job as an architect to start my own business helping architects and designers become better communicators. You can find the blog and podcast at DesignDrawSpeak.com.
I moved from Melbourne to New York City, and have spent most of 2014 living and travelling in the USA, Europe and South East Asia. My ultimate goal is to lead a location-independent lifestyle, earning an income doing what I love.
Sound like a bit much to ask? I don’t think so!
I’m here to help you discover more about YOU, how to overcome your fears and how to push through your comfort zones, whether through adopting a healthier lifestyle, undertaking a massive physical challenge, or choosing – as Macklemore would say – “love over a desk”.
