Get Comfortable

"I hope you're all comfortable. If not, it's your own fault." This is how our host welcomed us to a dinner party last night. He and his wife had worked hard to make sure we all felt comfortable and welcomed but if we chose not to take advantage of that it was definitely our fault. I've spent too many years learning that this statement is true in many situations. Especially in my writing life. When I have to speak to a group, sign books in an unfamiliar location, or attend a writer's conference I can choose to be comfortable (or at least fake it) or I can feel uncomfortable and most likely alienate the people I'm speaking or meeting with. Since I graduated high school (in a huge class of 42) I've been in many situations I wasn't comfortable with. Growing up in the tiny town of Clifton, Idaho, I rarely met a new friend. As I went to USU and then started working I had to learn to be comfortable whatever situation I was in. When I finally figured out how to relax and be comfortable or fake it when I needed to life became so much easier, I was blessed with many more friends, and I was able to watch out for others instead of focusing on my own discomfort. Make yourself comfortable, everyone around you will thank you for it.
