So I discovered that I’m a comfort zone dweller. And it’s not just as in casual comfort zone dwelling, it’s the glued into the space kind of thing; with those types of glue for gluing wood or metal or something tougher.
Getting me out of my comfort zone is like pulling a tooth with a plier sans anesthetic, you can expect to get varied reactions from fleeing like a crazed woman to hyperventilating to an outright temper tantrum. And I confess, it’s frustrating, very frustrating. I know for a fact that no one grows in their comfort zone so I have to battle this one out. Battle it out I will, starting from the inside out.
I just find myself wondering, what’s the deal with this comfort zone thing? How does a person get so cooped up in a certain way of being or doing that it becomes so hard to break out?
I looked around my favourite internet spot ‘Google’ a bit, to hear what people had to say. In all, it looks like there are many comfort zone dwellers out there. Humanity loves the familiar, those shoes that are well worn but make you feel soooo comfortable or the weather beaten belt that you just won’t let go of because when you wear it, it’s just one with your waist line. Lol, I had one like that, my sister literally forced it out of my life, she had it in for that belt! We all tend to gravitate towards the path of least resistance, it just feels warm and cozy.
Staying in that comfort zone isn’t a winning strategy for life though. Nobody did anything great sitting in their bathrobe, sipping tea from their 10 year old mug. I personally don’t see it getting me to the next level or helping me with my growth strategy. That’s why tons of people grow in age but not in maturity, I loved my teenage days but I just found I had to let go! And even then, life thrust adulthood on me, I just was faced with adult issues and I had to adapt.
Change is the only one constant thing in life and it’s best to embrace it and anticipate it, that way it’s easier.
Oh well, this is one post where I feel like I’m rambling but the decision has been made, one step at a time, I’m stepping out of my comfort zone! Starting from today!
Have a fab weekend folks!
