being ok with being uncomfortable

I attended a figure drawing meet up for the first time last night. It’s something I have been wanting to do for a while, but I still had to muster up the courage just to knock on the door and walk in. I was a bit nervous for sure. New people. New environment. Nude model. My brain was definitely firing on all synapses. I haven’t spent 3 hours drawn like this, from a model, since I was in college. I was definitely feeling a bit rusty but by the end I was starting to settle in and enjoying the process. Sometimes you need to push yourself outside your comfort zone and be ok with being uncomfortable for a bit.
