Yes, my comfort zone. I mentioned in an earlier post that I really want to stretch my introvert boundaries. I want to be more comfortable in new places, new situations, around new people. So I have plans to work toward that goal and jump outside my box.
Today I will be going to the Burke County Board of Elections meeting. It isn't a "huge" deal for most people but for me it is enormous. These are people I don't know and a meeting I have never been to. Discussing issues that could be tense. I am going alone, so no one there to lean on....but myself. So this is kind of a small test for me. Just reaching outside my comfort zone a little.
I could just continue with my normal morning routine and head on over to curves and work out. But no, I am making myself do this for ME. I do want to be comfortable talking to people I have never met, and be able to make small talk and just feel OK. So I am reaching here, and I will continue to do so. I am seeking out opportunities to step outside the box and maybe one day there will be no box for me. Maybe one day I will feel just as comfortable in new situations as I do with my old habits. So keep me in mind as you go about your day.
Maybe step outside your box a little.
