Project: Reflect 52 #28 - Life begins at the end of your comfort zone


Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. So if you're feeling uncomfortable right now, know that the change taking place in your life is a beginning, not an ending.
- Neale Donald Walsch

It's really good to hear this, again. I'm not a natural-born risk-taker. I HATE taking risks, even calculative ones. So, I love to stay and "rot" in my comfort zones. I'm most confident in doing what I can and like within my skill sets; I don't really bother to find out what else I can do. The older I am, the easier it is to stay in those zones because I just want, you know, peace and quiet.

Lately, I venture into some projects that need me to come out from my years of "meditation" in my comfort zones. I lack the much needed belief and motivation that the projects are doable. I think I don't have the skills; I'm so scared of failure; I keep on telling myself I don't like to do it - typical traits of a 'play-it-safe' person.

Talking about being 'safe', here's a pretty good paragraph from a book I'm currently reading.

Rachel to Robbie her brother: "You just take Mom and fly on back to your safe girlfriend, in your safe house, in your safe trendy neighborhood, and live your safe, predictable life and have safe, predictable kids, and die a safe, worthless death after doing absolutely nothing with your safe life. I'm going to stay here and do some good, because that's what people do when they are alive and not just going through the motions. I am not going to find myself on my deathbed, wondering what would have happened if I hadn't played it safe!"

Pretty strong huh?

But yeah, I am not going to find myself wondering what would have happened if I hadn't picked up my courage to get the projects done!
