Finding a comfort zone.

We’ve fast forwarded to 2019 and here I am back again after a literal eternity, on my blog. Untouched, dusty, yet waiting for me. With blog posts only I have written, words that have crossed my mind only and spilled from my fingers onto my keyboard, here my blog, a part of me, waits. Already a few steps behind the fashion, it already needs a re-do, to be fancy and glam and back up to date.

However, today I’m not here to talk about how I’m going to re-do my blog, what I will be posting or what about, I’m sure you’ll find out yourself as the days go by. Today I’m posting about our comfort zones.

A phrase which we’ve been accustomed to dislike and one we’re always being told to leave, to jump out of, something we should leave behind in order to enable us to go further, reach higher and run faster. Do I disagree completely? No. Do I have something to say about this? I always have something to say about everything.

Whilst all or none of the above may be true about comfort zones, whilst you’re reading this on a Monday morning I want you to truly think about what is our comfort zone and why is it called this? Because to me it seems almost like it has been tainted with a black mark. Like we’re almost supposed to hate feeling comfortable with ourselves, such a paradox. When in another way, beings can only achieve great things if they are comfortable in and within themselves.

How can I achieve great things if I’m not constantly in a comfortable zone with myself? Does the phrase ‘comfort zone’ really portray what we think it means? Can we not stay there and also jump higher, reach our goals, the stars and beyond? A comfort is a comfort and yes, of course, if we take this away we are putting ourselves into an agitated state in order to push our minds, bodies and spirits to regain this back. And then what? We’re pushing it further and out the boundary again. A constant push and pull, a discipline which teaches us to take away and then self reward. Whilst in the long term there of course is nothing entirely wrong with this, I have started viewing things in another perspective.

S E L F LOVE. Is an expression in which I have taken great interest in lately and within this I have found a greater and deeper perspective of seeing things, a way of being in which you love who you are enough to want more for yourself. You are so comfortable with yourself it gives you great confidence to go and reach what you think further belongs to you and claim it as yours.

So, on this Monday morning I am pondering the link between self love, comfort zones and where we really need to be in order to reach our goals. What are your thoughts on this?
