Getting out of your comfort zone.
Maybe this is what I am doing right now.
Getting out of my comfort zone.
Maybe that’s why I am feeling kind of uncomfortable, kind of anxious.
Usually when I hear that phrase, I think of doing something extreme in a physical way. I think of climbing a crazily high mountain or training for a marathon at 40 degrees celsius. Or going for a surf on a big swell day with lots of wind and the spray blowing in your face, grey sky above, to make it even more unpleasant. Yes. I guess most of us would think of something like that, something physically challenging, some kind of crazy or totally exhausting action.
Yet, sometimes—and for me this is the case right now—getting out of your comfort zone refers to something way more quiet and way less physical: It’s about putting yourself out there, but this time with your feelings and perceptions. Kind of turning yourself inside out, not knowing if you’re giving away too much. Not really knowing how things will be perceived by others.
That’s where I am right now. I’m starting over, with my blog, but I am unsure of how you, the people reading my stories, are going to like it and where all this is going to go. That’s where I am, to be completely honest. This is me, leaving my comfort zone and exploring new territory.
What about you: Do you know this feeling? What’s your new territory or recent challenges? Join me in this endeavour and share a thought in the comments section or send me an email. Love, Kat
