Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. –-Neale Donald Walsh
I love this quote. It’s where I’m at now learning new software, figuring out paths, recording the paths, communicating my findings. It’s all new, fresh and totally out of my comfort zone.
Know what I mean? Ever taken a chance on something that kept you on edge the whole time- wondering if you were crazy to do something so out of the ordinary – and yet – enjoying the newness of it all?
My trouble is when I’m ready for a change – I leap then look. Most of the time I overthink an issue. Then those other times when I want something different and I want it now … I leap.
Or I say Yes when I should just keep quiet. Or I make a suggestion which often means I get to lead the charge (or the committee.)
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. When you step out of your regular routine, you get that butterfly feeling inside and you feel more alive than ever.
Like writing a blog. How uncomfortable is that? You put words down and publish them along with 200, 000 others on a daily basis! What is everyone writing about? And with all those writers, will anyone read, notice or care about mine?
The answer is – I care. It gets me out of my comfort zone and I continue to grow and learn.
