Leave The Comfort Zone

I spent a lot of time in the comfort zone and it’s not as great as it seems. It was a trap to get me stuck in a routine that I don’t even like. I just did it to feel safe and it was easy.

Eventually things changed in my life and I decided it was time to move out of that zone and here is why…

The minute I left my comfort zone, I was afraid. The confident person I once was, was all of a sudden questioning my abilities. The only good thing that stuck with me was my determination. I continued to push no matter how worried I was. To my surprise, my discomfort worked in my favor…it saved me.

Since I wanted so badly to feel comfortable and safe again, I tried harder and harder to find balance. The more I pushed myself, the more I accomplish. The more I accomplish, the more confident I became.

Being uncomfortable started to feel like accepting a challenge. It was no longer scary,  just another part of the process to learning about myself. I quickly learned what I am capable of and that I will be okay.

But most importantly, life became exciting. I wanted to try new things. I wanted to test myself and see how much more I had inside of me. I wanted to find experiences that I do things I would have never done if I stayed in my bubble.

I have one life to live and I want it to be satisfying. I want to learn about who I am and what I’m capable of. I want to meet new people and see different places. I want to feel excitement. I want to feel alive.

Leaving the comfort zone is scary and sometimes it doesn’t go as planned, but it’s always been worth it in the long run.

    Great post 😀I’ve spent most of my life outside my comfort zone, it’s living ha. But I had a friend who was terrified of that, she once said, “But I love being in my comfort zone” There again she was a Princess 😀😀😀. Well written, thanks for sharing, hopefully it’ll inspire people 😀
