It’s so easy to stay in our comfort zone. After all life is all about comfort. But what I have discovered is that if we stay in our comfort zone then we never learn.
Doing the same thing day after day is good if it’s working for you. But what so often happens is we get used to a destructive behaviour. Either our own or others and we tell ourselves that it’s impossible to change. It becomes our norm.
So what happens if we do something different? Initially it may feel scary. However if you keep doing it, after a while it will start to feel normal. That is when we have shifted our comfort zone and learnt something new.
The art is to keep trying and finding what is right for you. Think about what is normal for you. Does it work. What are your relationships like with those you love. If you asked them what would they say about you that you may not be aware of?
Observe your feelings and think about your patterns of behaviour. Is it time to do something different and maybe experience that scary feeling. Breathe deeply and while your heart is fluttering look around. Your perception may just have shifted.
