Bye bye comfort zones
Hi my loves,
I hardly dare to publish a new blogpost. As you might know I wanted to publish more posts more often and what happened? Well, not that much. Primarily it has nothing to do with my limited time resources although that’s a big problem too at the moment. But it’s basically all about my missing muse. Believe me or not but currently there is a missing concept, a construct, well on some days I actually don’t even find the right words. And this is really bitter because words normally always have been my personal healing.
Honestly my life is still changing, it is still in some kind of a transition phase and I don’t know where I will end up. Anyway, with this there are so many new things to sort, to settle and to tame. And I am not talking about my inner demons. It is even more all about these specific circumstances life brings around. This actually means that either my head is so full that I don’t know where to start or so empty that I just wanna sleep. For days at least.
But this would probably lead to my unemployment sooner or later so I have to find a solution. I thought about it several times now and the solution is quite obvious, simple but also difficult:
Leave your comfort zone.
Well, that’s not so easy at all.
As we all know: it is pretty warm and comfy within these comfort zones. So no wonder that humans normally tend to stay in these zones for a long, long time or even forever. But leaving these well-known comfort zones is what we definitely need to grow as a human and person.
All well and good. But how do we get out? Out of this most comfortable zones we have created and arranged for years. The answer is also not that easy because there is no patent solution, no universal remedy because we are all individuals and we do all have completely different comfort zones.
For some of us it might be difficult to give up control and just let go. For others it might be a nightmarish thought to give a presentation in front of a bunch of strangers. Whatever it is, it’s mostly important to analyse and recognize these individual comfort zones to prepare for the next step: learning to step out of them whenever needed.
For this reason I surround myself with positive people who inspire me, who engage me to get out of these zones. Hearing my inner voice again, trusting me and my skills. Things, I have unlearned the past months.
I recognized my own comfort zones and now I am finally ready to leave them fully aware. Not always. Because nobody demands that either. But from time to time and even more often. Although I am a bit scared or feeling insecure and unprotected. For me personally it is important to get things done, being more structured and talking about things I don’t like directly.
The first step is done already.
Now it’s time to take the next ones: trusting me, my intuition and my skills. The rest will follow.
I will keep you updated! Have a wonderful week,
Oh Monique I totally feel you. But everything is getting well soon.
Wishing you all the very best,
