This is not something I’d usually even try,
It’s unnerving working outside of the norm,
I lack know-how on which I could rely,
I have reservations, qualms, anxiety storms.
No one to hold my hand and walk me through,
My comfort zone is leagues away from here,
I feel exposed, bare, but resolute,
New methods hold potency, beyond the fear.
Fear of the unknown has a huge impact on almost all of our decisions, actions, strategies and lives. Because of this, it also influences the painful outcomes that we struggle to break free from, and by extension, our future.
It’s only when we put ourselves in new, unfamiliar situations, that we can find out who we truly are, what we are actually capable of, and can change that seemingly dark destination to somewhere brighter and much more desirable.
What have you done that was outside of your comfort zone, that helped you in some way?
Love and Respect always,
