“A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.”
As kids we were always trying new things and stepping out of our comfort zones. The older we get the easier and more convenient it becomes to stay put and avoid change. But we need to step outside those comfort zones to grow and learn.
I'm stepping out of my comfort zone to move cross-country for a job in order to advance my career the way I want to see it going. I'm leaving family friends and ten years of memories in Vermont- it's not easy, but I'll have Kit (my dog) to keep me company and to talk to when I get lonely.
I have to make new friends, meet lots of new people, and remember lots of people's names. Sometimes I’m so excited for this change I can't contain my excitement and other times I'm so nervous I want to stay. But it's that leap of faith that I know will work out but just need to keep reminding myself of that.
I have to think back to my childhood where everything is scary and new and just go with it, not afraid to fail but encouraged to LIVE. Colorado here I come!
Life Begins at The End of Your Comfort Zone.
