This is Me Getting Out of My Comfort Zone (Vlog #5)

The video is pretty self explanatory. In brief, my last breakup turned out to be a huge blessing in disguise, because my new beginning gave me the push I needed to take risks and do things I never would have done before. I realized that after doing things outside my comfort zone, I feel happy. Probably a good way to take care of mental health.

Do you know of anyone who’s done drastic things after a breakup, like chopping off or dyeing their hair? It totally makes sense to me now. I feel that my body’s been like, hey, something’s different about me after the breakup.. so might as well do everything else differently! It’s as if my whole being has been rewired to just live with the expectation of facing crazy changes at any moment.

I told my best friend I feel like I’ve been in a “risk-taking phase” these days, always trying to think of the next “risky” thing that I can do, meaning simply just doing things outside my comfort zone… wayyyy outside my comfort zone.

So today my crazy risky idea was to cover an Eminem song. I tried. Here’s the video:

Not gonna lie, making the video was fun. I also had to get over my perfectionism so I kind of had to force myself to not rerecord the video over and over again until I got everything right.

Another lesson: I get so more much accomplished when I DO things not perfectly but actually get the things done. Way better than not doing or finishing things for fear of failure or wanting everything to be perfect.

Amy Lo is a millennial whose life today looks very different from what it looked like a year ago. A year ago she was living by herself in an isolated studio where she often spent many days depressed and bedridden, unable to get up to go to work, because of her soon-to-be broken-off wedding engagement. A year later she finds herself happier than she ever was in her life, and does things she never thought she could do, like waking up early and going to the gym multiple times a week! Because of her personal experience, Amy hopes to inspire and encourage other young adults who may be in a seemingly perpetual funk, by sharing things she's found helpful in positively redirecting the trajectory of her life. She believes it's never too late to turn your life around, and there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how dark it may be at the moment.
