getting out of my comfort zone…awkward, uncomfortable, trying something new…
Comfort Zone, we all have one, it’s just that some peoples are huge and others, not so huge. I like staying in my comfort zone, whether it’s life or photography, you know it’s, well, comfortable. I find my comfort zone narrowing as I get older, and that scares me a little bit. The solution? GET OUT OF IT! When I was younger, that was no problem, perhaps because life was always changing and I was always learning. Life still changes, but not like 30 years ago, or even 15 years ago, and I am still learning, but it seems different somehow.
As for today: 6:30am, that’s the time I left the house. Early for a Sunday, actually that is early for any day of the week, but the light is nice at that time of day, so once again I grabbed my gear and took of. I decided to head downtown today, not sky scraper downtown, small town downtown. As for my comfort zone, I did stretch it some today, I took inspiration from others, so I thank you.
Once again: ‘Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.’ -Brian Tracy
