All my best life experiences came from decisions that were made from outside of my comfort zone. It’s never an easy task because in the heat of the moment, you are constantly overthinking and second guessing if that decision is really the right one but you will never know until you do it.
‘What-ifs’ scare me and maybe that’s why I step out of my comfort zone more often now than I did a few years ago, I DON’T WANT TO THINK ABOUT WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN . . . I would much rather see for myself than assume, if it’s a disappointment then I can cry about it while eating ice-cream and if it’s the opposite then yaaaay but the good thing is I experienced the outcome.
My mom told me yesterday that leaving her small town was the biggest and best decision she ever made in her life, it opened so many doors and closed a few but at the end of the day she doesn’t regret it because she would do it again in a heartbeat and maybe a lot sooner than the age she did.
I’VE ALWAYS PRAYED FOR MY MOM’S COURAGE AND RISK TAKING SPIRIT.
Sometimes I have to think thoroughly about my decisions even though I know I’m going to choose the one that scares the shit out of me, my mom on the other hand goes with the one that requires the most courage and she chooses immediately without hesitation and acts on it right after; she’s inspiring!
Ten years from now, make sure you can say that you chose your life. You didn’t settle for it.Mandy Hale
The point I’m trying to make is, you will always feel safe in your comfort zone because nothing is happening and whatever does happen is a part of the regular routine but don’t look back 10 years down the road and sigh with regret wishing you had done something you really wanted to do but didn’t because your comfort zone was too comfy.
EMBRACE BEING UNCOMFORTABLE THAT’S WHERE ALL THE GROWTH HAPPENS.
