Life brings a lot of great exciting new opportunities when you’re willing to live outside your comfort zone.
If we never went outside our area of comfort we would do the same things over and over again, never trying anything new. Life would become very boring, very quickly. You also would start to watch life from the inside.
Living on the inside allows you to stick to what you know and be comfortable, but it also means never stretching or growing. It means watching others do things you dream of doing but are too afraid to try. You will slowly shut down when you are not engaged in day to day life.
When you live in fear, other emotions start to surface, such as sadness, depression and eventually anger. You are angry that others can do what you cannot, and at yourself for being to afraid to try. It takes courage to step across that line and get out your comfort zone.
Living outside your comfort zone allows you to try things you haven’t done before. Some you may like, others you may not and that’s okay. It means that you are open and willing to give new things a try, to learn and expand your own horizons.
When you broaden your horizons you open up even more opportunities. One thing leads to another, then another. Each effort brings a different kind of satisfaction to you, knowing you tried, and knowing you accomplished what you set out to do.
Life can be an exciting and enjoyable journey. The choice is always yours. Do yourself a favour, and give yourself permission to live outside your comfort zone.
