You have to chase the things that ignite you. You have to do the things that bring you joy. You have to surround yourself with the people who bring you back home to yourself, with the people who respect you and embrace you in ways that make you feel like you are worthy and accepted and celebrated and loved. You have do the work to heal yourself, even when it hurts especially when it hurts, so that you do not continue to approach your life within the boundary of what is heavy within you. You have to put yourself out there, and you cannot worry about what other people think, you cannot rob yourself of experience or happiness or inspiration because you are scared of how you will be perceived. You have to be unapologetic in the way that you exist here. You have to believe that your ideas, and your hope, and your being, deserve to take up space. You have to believe that you have purpose.
Because our existence is finite. And as hard as that is to understand, as hard as that can be to connect with, from time to time remind yourself that in the most human way we are all living on borrowed time. We live as if we are promised the experiences and the potential we are chasing, we live as if we have control over what happens to us. But we don’t, and that is liberating, because it is pressing there is urgency within the lesson. It is meant to wake you up. Life is meant to be lived. (Not my words).
Once in a while i talk about the flip sides of comfort zone. The darkest side of being stuck in your COMFORT ZONE is; “You could lose your individuality”. When you live your entire life inside your comfort zone, you easily become lost in the crowd without an inner guiding light. You become just another sheep walking with the herd. When you break away from the masses, It might feel uncomfortable but that is the space where you can find fulfillment through growth and connection. Unless you retain your individuality, you won’t make a difference in the world. Capitalize on your potential or learn new things. Once you release yourself from the prison of comfortability, you’ll start to see new and better opportunities and you’ll be able to take advantage of them. Other people will notice how you move forward through life and they will look up to you for guidance and inspiration. Instead of being just another follower, you empower yourself to carve your own path and Lead others toward their greatness as well.
So many people trap themselves within the confines of their comfort zones, for some it’s merely a habit, others never leave because they let their irrational fears dictate their lives, these people condemn themselves to a reality full of frustration and regret. Don’t let that be you although it seems scary to venture out of your comfort zone. You need to take the first steps. If you practice pushing the boundaries of your comfort zone, you’ll become comfortable with the unfamiliar. Then you can jump into drastically different territory of surprises & happiness. It’s the opportunity to become a better version of yourself & create an IDENTITY which can’t be replicated.
