Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zones!
Let’s be real for a second, because I don’t think many of us get that aspect enough. Each and everyone of us live in a bubble, a “comfort zone” and we do not like stepping outside of it. I say this knowing I whole heartedly do too. I have a routine, how I like things done, what I’m comfortable doing and what I’m uncomfortable doing, or listening to. We live in a place and for some it might be amazing, for others it might be horrible, and for some it’s not too great not too bad, it’s just good. If you’re in any of those places, believe me when I say there is nothing wrong with that, but if you’re yearning and wanting for more then it’s time you stop continuously doing the same thing hoping that you’ll get a different result. Like any journey, like anything worth while, or that changes us and who we are - it takes taking that first step to step outside what’s comfortable and uncomfortable and doing something that might be hard for us. Whether it’s making yourself do something you’re not comfortable doing like asking for help, or applying for the job that you don’t think you’ll get. It’s asking that pretty boy, or girl on the date, it’s quitting the job you want, it’s moving out of the house, it’s taking a risk on your dream. We live in our own bubbles of comfortability- and change is hard. It was hard for me when I started to quit the things I had a habit of doing and to change my ways, and how I thought. It was hard and uncomfortable and frustrating to sometimes not understand and feel alone and confused. It was hard to not know what exactly to do next, to take steps in a direction not knowing what would come. Simply, it was hard and those steps I took looking back took me to a place I always thought in my head I could go to, but never thought I could actually do. It took something I thought and dreamed about constantly and made it become a reality. Take the next step. Do something that pushes you in the right direction that is outside your comfort zone, and become something in time that you never thought you could become.
