Your comfort zone

Starting something new can be scary, like how I feel right now and have done for the past few weeks actually (it was such a coincidence that this is the quote I pulled out of my Happy Jar). See, I start my new job today, in an hour and 30 minutes after this post goes live. It took me a while to get here – searching, applying and three nerve-wracking interviews to be exact but, I made it. And I didn’t get here by staying in my comfort zone.
I actually really loved my comfort zone. It was a happy, friendly, fun place, and it made me feel good. But there was always that niggly feeling that I needed to move on. Comfort zones tend to do that – you like them, but you know that they’re not enough.
It took courage to do something about it, and despite the fact that I am nervous, I know it will be better for me in the long run. Yes, I miss my friends and the team that I’ve built such a bond with, but I had to do what was right for me and my future.
Here’s to new beginnings and coming out of my comfort zone.
Have a great day!

    I definitely agree with you.
    Being out of your comfort zone always leads you to discover new things and opportunities as well as becoming better as a person.
    I’m happy for you Michi! Go you!

    Fab post! I’m slowly starting to do things out of my comfort zone and think I need to push this! It is definitely scary but I think smaller steps help! x

    I couldn’t agree more! I recently realized how much I love writing just like you and started my own blog after toying with the idea for months, I needed a little push but am really enjoying blogging now. And all the best for your new job!
