10 things I dare or dared to do in my life!

Dear readers,

People who don’t know me or don’t know me very well often think, rightly or wrongly, that I am someone inhibited. It is true that I have a shy side but you should know that I also have a challenger side! Managing to get out of your comfort zone is sometimes frightening but also exciting and rewarding at the same time. Here are 10 things I do or dared to do at least once in my life, enjoy!

1) Auditioning for a role as an extra in a movie! Ok, it was not a Hollywood movie but it was a French movie which included some well-known actors in the cast. I have not been selected for the role but it was great to put myself in the shoes of an actress for a few minutes and be filmed by a professional. Playing a fictional character is a very effective way to overcome your shyness, trust me!

2) Writing to the whole world what I think! This is what I regularly do in my articles since the creation of my blog. This project was really dear to my heart and I am proud to have managed to get into this publishing adventure on my own! My readers come from all around the world, I love being able to create an international interaction, it makes me very happy.

3) Going to the supermarket in my pyjama! I admit that it happens to me from time to time if I spent all day at home. Do you think it’s necessary to be dressed to the nines and apply make-up like a fashion plate just to buy a brick of orange juice and a cereal box? I don’t think so. Don’t be shocked, people have other things to do instead of looking at how you are dressed! I prefer to keep my nice clothes for real outings, seriously…

4) Making videos! I did a video resume where I had fun playing sketches that I had invented and I also have several videos of me singing and playing the guitar. I don’t care if they are not successful, my goal is not to become famous, I just want to be more confident and push my limits. Haters don’t scare me, I just do what I like and this is priceless! I think it allows me to let off steam and express my artistic side.


5) Being sporty! I started running two months ago and I have committed myself to run twice a week, whatever the weather. Last Sunday morning, there was a sudden heavy rain but it didn’t stop me from running 13 kilometers! Running allows me to increase my performance objectives, to test my endurance and my perseverance. I love this sport. It’s funny because a few years ago I would never have believed myself able to do it…


6) Wearing brightly colored nail polish! I started to do it two years ago and I admit that it puts me in a good mood, especially in summer. This may be trivial but before, I forbade myself to wear flashy colors for fear of being noticed. Now I’m no longer afraid to assume my color preferences. If I want to paint my nails in turquoise blue or sweet pink, I don’t hesitate anymore and it feels great!

7) Taking the initiative to kiss someone I like first! I admit that it’s very rare that it happens to me. I generally prefer to wait for the other to make the first move but sometimes if all the signs are there, you don’t have to hesitate to give him a boost. Because if both people are shy, you risk waiting a long time yet…

8) Refusing to do something that seems dishonest! I have my principles and I will never do anything illegal. It’s important to know who you are and to respect your values. That’s why I never yield to threats.

no way9) Being honest with my feelings! Even if I can appear hypersensitive, harsh or too passionate, my feelings are part of me. If I love someone, I tell them. The same applies if I don’t feel anything for them. I never play with people’s feelings. Love is not a game to be taken lightly…

10) Continuing to believe in my dreams! Dreams are our reason to exist. They push us to do better and allow us to move forward. It’s thanks to my dreams that I have the motivation to get up every morning!


And you, what are the things you dare to make? Don’t hesitate to give your opinion in the comment field. Cheers 🙂

    I totally relate to this list. It took me years to finally write a blog post. I was terrified but now that I’m here I feel at home. And running? It was so ‘not me’ but I’ve now done a couple of half marathons. I’m still not brave enough to make videos but would love to some day! Great post!
