STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE!!!
This is a big one! and a really good one since, as we have all heard before, Life begins at the end of our comfort zone.
When I was younger and straight out of college, I lived outside my comfort zone just fine. Probably drove my parents insane. But as I “grew up”, I settled down. Got a “real” job and began to live a “regular” life. SNOOOZE!!!! BOOOOORING!!!
Not only did I get bored, frustrated and unhealthy, I also got…BROKE!
How on earth do you get broke in your comfort zone?….doing all the right things your parents told you to do??? That makes no sense.
But look around you. What do you see? An endless number of people running the endless rat race and endlessly trying to pay off the endlessly growing debts.
What is so “comfort”able about that “comfort” zone???? Nothing! I can tell you that!
Look, we are not all looking to be the next Warren Buffett, Donald Trump, or Mark Zuckerberg, but wouldn’t it be nice to be able to plan a day out with the family without first counting out all the bills that are hitting your paycheck this week.
How about a date night out with your hubby – NO kids (I did say “date–night”, didn’t I?) Call in the babysitting service and go have a ball…you can afford it!
Or how about NO Family at all…How about a day just for you. Maybe a day at a fancy spa??? Get a facial, a massage, mani AND pedi…Why not?? You CAN afford it!
These are not tall orders…they are basics…and YES…you CAN afford them. Just saying’!
I, for one, am stepping way out of my comfort zone this year. I am so done being “comfortable”. I am ready to have some life and adventure in my life again. I am ready and willing to try something new and watch it pay off. Yeehaaa!!!!
Come on Folks!!! Let’s do like Nike…Just do it! 🙂
Love and Blessings
I’m with you on this one, Susan! I’m getting out of my comfort zone this year and actually daring to DREAM! 🙂 Glad I came across this today because I needed the boost to encourage me to keep dreaming! 🙂 And thank you also for stopping by my blog and reading about my friend, Andy, and his fight with addiction. He has been clean for the last two and a half years. If you are interested, I posted part two to his story last night. Very powerful testimony of how he stepped out of his comfort zone, literally, to get clean and do something beyond himself and serve a community and Kenya! Have a great week! – JC
thank you so much for Andy’s story. It brings tears of joy to my eyes. What a great testimony! I am so happy for Andy, his wife and all those children he is helping to bless in Kenya. It is an awesome story. Many times we need to step out of ourselves and our own wants and desires to SERVE others, in order to find ourselves. God is so Good! All the best with stepping out of that comfort zone too Jenny…I’ll be looking forward to hearing great things. Blessings.
