Living in the Moment, Staying in the Comfort Zone
The phras comfort zone can have different perspectives, bringing different light to a complex topic. When you hear the words “comfort zone” you may not think of it as a complex topic, but there are two very different opinions on what our comfort zone can be.
For some our comfort zone exists in staying home, curled up in a cozy blanket watching movies or reading a book, while others may find their comfort zone outside finding a wild adventure in far off places. Where ever that place of comfort lies, it is yours to cherish.
But a controversial topic it can be. Type it in on google, some will say Live in the moment, do things that terrify you and get out of your comfort zone while others may say, don’t leave your comfort zone, it is who you are! Be in the place you feel at peace in.
I say, “Its time to break free of the unhappiness in your life.”
Do what makes you feel happy in life, if your not happy with where you are, it is time to change what you are doing. Yes, that might mean you have to break out of your daily routine, it might mean you have to reach into a different area that you are not comfortable in right now. But it all is about learning to develop yourself to become the person you wish to be.
I think we all have a comfort zone, where we are afraid to be ourselves and afraid of stepping out of where we are right now and then there is the comfort zone where we are at peace with our lives, Where living in the moment is easy, where making choices to better our lives may be a little frightening but we trust our intuition enough to follow the path we were born to take.
The Road less traveled
Our true comfort zone is NOT, I repeat is NOT following the path that was laid out for us, it is Not following what we are told to door how we were told to act. It is taking life by the reins and following our dreams. Yes, you may have to step into unfamiliar territory, you may have to get good at things your horrible at. But I promise you, it gets better, it gets easier and it gets comfortable. You will find your true comfort zone.
You get comfortable with growth, with change, and with the life you wish to create.
When you get into a routine, you become comfortable, you become lazy, you become bored and content with just being where you are. You might have dreams and ambitions that lay somewhere deep inside of you. But if you don’t do something about following those dreams.
(I hate to be blunt…) But honestly you just killed them, you killed them with being comfortable with where you are in life right now. Your sitting around letting life just lead you down its own path with no destination in mind. And with that comes regret.
SO choose to be a leader, a fighter, a living in the moment kind of comfort zone striver.
Be a leader of your dreams, share what inspires you share what drives you and keeps you running forward with that dream. Don’t let it die. Don’t be that person about to take their last breath and realize that life passed you by and you never did anything to follow your dreams.
Now I am not saying to step out of your comfort zone to prove a point or to impress someone. NO, it has to be for you. It has to be you doing it for yourself or for whatever inspires you to push forward.
Embrace the comfort zone, that makes you the person you wish to be.
Learn your strengths, learn your weaknesses, learn to do things that make you happy; set boundaries with what you want in your life and what you don’t want. It takes a great deal of confidence to live a life in your true comfort zone, not the comfort zone you settled with in fear of disappointing yourself or others around you.
When I think of my comfort zone
A picture of contentment and freedom comes to mind. A picture of freedom to let my heart sing, and my soul shine through, impacting the lives of thousands and to enrich others with that same feeling of comfort and beauty that I strive to keep in my life.
