3 Areas My Life Changed by Stepping Out My Comfort Zone.

When people meet me I get told that I am so outgoing. The life of the party. Though I am those things, I am a little shy. There are times I am uncomfortable trying new things, so I may fake it till I make it. Family and friends may disagree, but it's TRUE. If I am going to try something new, I like to read about it, and become informed before I try it. That means if there is something that sounds hard in my mind I may not do it. I didn't realize how much I was living in a box until I started to say yes.

For the past few years, I have been stepping out of my comfort zone to new opportunities. And my life has completely changed.

In my personal life, when I met my husband, I was open to meeting new people, but not necessarily him. He was someone that my coworkers had a crush on. I didn't really give him a second look, because he was a resident where I was working at the time. We were not supposed to fraternize, but I said yes when he asked me out and my life changed. I definitely did not think that he was going to be my husband, but he turned out to be. I couldn't be happier. 

In my spiritual life, I went to church on a regular basis. I knew who God was and I had a relationship with him. I didn't always do what I knew was right. I decided to research other religions. It was completely random I was drawn to learning how people believed what they believed. I grew a deeper understanding of who God is and why I worship the way I do. It was life changing because I was no longer feeling in the back of my mind that what if feeling. 

My career didn't really take off until I was willing to push myself out of my comfort zone to learn knew things. Do I always get everything right. NO, However,  I  can tell you that my technique is building up and I can tell the difference between when I started and where I am today.

This was taken while it was slow. At any moment someone can walk in wanting something that can take me out of my comfort zone and I have to be ready.
