When the idea of writing a blog post came up, it intrigued me and intimidated me at the same time. After all, I had never considered myself to be a writer but have admired others who have written blog posts.
When making a decision about how to move forward, I thought of one of my favorite quotes by Neale Donald Walsch: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
Sure, I love the quote but do I really want to step out of my comfort zone in such a big way? Thinking about my options, I could stay safe where I currently am or make the decision to step into all of my possibilities when it comes to my life and career.
That could mean facing possible negative feedback about what I have written. I could let that thought hold me back or I could remember the paradigm: “There’s no such thing as failure, only feedback.”
For those who know me, I am all about personal growth. Some may even call me a “personal growth junkie.” That just happens to be a description I like about myself.
So yes, it would be a big leap for me out of my comfort zone but I am ready. Each step that I have taken on my personal growth journey has opened up new possibilities for me and I find that to be very exciting.
As I take this leap, I would love to have you along for the ride with me. This blog will be all about sharing bits of my life with you. Maybe you will feel inspired, possibly a little bit comforted knowing that someone is going through something similar to you or maybe you will not relate to what I am saying at all, and that’s okay. Either way, I am grateful that you decided to stop by.
Would love to hear what comes up for you when you think of stepping out of your comfort zone. Feel free to share in the comments below or reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until next time…
