The comfort zone is a comfy-fort, a fort of relaxation. Inside I feel all cozy and at peace. Out of worries and free of any tension. There is no thought pushing you to do stuff. Comfort zone is a place where you are OK with yourself & you do the things you know you’re good at. There is peace in there.
And then it strikes you. Or somehow, someone or something tells you this –
And you want to set out to do things you have never been comfortable in.
It is awkward. You have a throbbing heart. Your head goes blank. You stutter. The legs are all shaky. The once smooth forehead has sweat running down. The calm turns into fear. The warmth turns into despair. Every decision feels wrong. Before you start to think why you are here, it’s already too long. You have all reasons to give up, feel down and be unnerved. But you have to still keep pushing and kicking to be out there. Because no matter how uncomfortable you are, you soon see why it is here that the magic happens.
If you do make frequent trips outside your comfort zones, let me tell you, you my friend are fantastic!
For me, even taking the first step out is scary. Every single time. But I have been there and it is definitely worth it. 🙂
