Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
Few years back, i was sitting on my couch and was thinking that i am not happy. Yes, I`ve been there. Hell, I`m still there sometimes.
I’ve let my fear control and define who I am. It took me a long time to realize that sometimes, even when it seems ridiculous or even inappropriate, you just have to let yourself go – and be YOU –
I bought a new apartment, had a lovely studio, a car, money in my bank account. I was heartbroken and was thinking what is all this for? I decided to hit the road again. Yes, I like getting out of my comfort zone most of the time. Because things that make life worthwhile and interesting are not usually in my comfort zone.
As human beings, we are inherently afraid. Afraid of failure, afraid of what other people will think of us, afraid of being alone, afraid of change and the unknown, and afraid to let ourselves go and step outside of our comfortable little environment – our tight-knit circle of friends – never wanting to leave the path we’ve been told we’re “supposed” to take.
All the magic happens once we decide to face our fears, once we decide to go after our dreams, once we decide to take risks and believe in that everything is possible.
If you’re wandering around wondering how to take that first step – how to quit your job and find something better, move to a new place, try a new food, get back into working out – whatever it is, big or small – just do it.
Usually, to get there, you have to step outside your comfort zone – you have to throw away being content and rock the boat a bit until you figure things out. You have to experiment and try new things – sometimes without a back up plan. It’s not easy, it can’t always be calculated and strategic – but causing a riff every now and then and introducing a little “chaos” into your lifestyle is sometimes the only way to get things done.
I am not telling it`s going to be easy, I`m telling you it`s going to be worth it.
