Stepping out of your comfort Zone

A lot of us do it.

We plod along under our comfort blanket, afraid to try new things for fear of failure.

We’d rather stay with what we know. The safe reliable environment of our smelly lifelong comfort blankets.

I’ve seen many people become depressed and sad, doing the same things day in and day out. Never trying something different. They know full well that they should, but every excuse under the sun prevents them from reaching out to touch the new.

But it’s not every excuse.

It’s just your own fear.

Your own mind.

Your own over thinking.

Since starting this blog I’ve tried a fair few new things. I’ve found out new things about myself and I’m enjoying the different discoveries that I stumble upon. Fear is still there but the trick is to not let it control you, your mind or your actions.

It’s easier said than done I know, but with each little step out from under your comfort blanket, a new world comes to light. Lifting you out of the pit of despair you may have found yourself in.

It doesn’t have to be standing on a stage in front of thousands of people. It could be as simple as wearing a different colour one day instead of your normal dark clothes.

Your comfort zone isn’t necessarily the most comfortable.

You will not fail. You will just learn new things.

  1. So true, once you calm fear, a new opens up. Which is usually when fear wuickly shows up again because it’s new, it’s out of the comfort zone and, well, seemingly not as safe as the places you know. But so much more exciting, maybe.
