When I step outside my door , I feel vulnerable in the best way. Inside of my home, I am in a glass bubble, protected but halfway asleep. Outside, I feel fully alive and do what I can to leave my comfort zone every single day.
A couple years ago, I started a project where I would walk up to strangers around the world, ask for their photograph and attempt to have a conversation with them. I did this because I am an introvert and terrified of rejection. So I know this would be everything I needed to put myself through, to have a healthier relationship with fear.
I have gone to 20 countries so far and walked up to over 1,000 strangers. There were lots of people that said no - But even more people said yes... And each day, I learned and felt more and more connected to the world around me.
