In today’s blog, let’s talk about stepping out of our comfort zones. Because let’s be real – the first quarter of the year came and went. And before we know it, the year will be over.
The older I get, the faster time flies. Amiright? or Amiright? I wish that was not the case but what can you do?
I’ll tell you what I do – I strive to be the best version of myself. Every. Single. Day. There is no question about it.
We all hold the power to create our own happiness. Have you heard that faking a smile can trick your brain into happiness? There are studies supporting this theory, and whether it may be true or not, you can bet I push myself to smile even when I don’t feel like it. And that my friend, is out of my comfort zone.
I know, it sounds stupid. And fake. But lemme tell you, when you go to a job you despise, this stupid little life hack made me feel better. In fact, it made me appreciate the fact that I even had a job.
That said, I encourage you to do something today that helps you step out of your comfort zone. Have you checked in with yourself to review where you stand on those goals you set in January? That might be a good place to start.
Below I’ve listed a few things I would like to do to continue the theme of stepping out of comfort zones. This is the only way I will continue to grow and test my character. And truthfully, to see what I am made of.
- Do more than five assisted pull-ups.
- Finish my first book of the year, Unshakeable, by Tony Robbins. (Hubby surprised me with a signed copy – eek!!!!)
- Volunteer for an event.
- Document life experiences in writing (aka journal).
- Go for runs like I used to.
Aside from those goals, I am also focused on becoming a better blogger. I did a pretty daring thing recently. I stepped out of my comfort zone and said yes to a local photographer. She reached out to ask if I wanted to shoot together and I took a chance.
And now to share outfit deets –
OK – if this isn’t the most feminine skirt ever, I don’t know what is! I absolutely LOVE it, can you picture me twirling in it? Because I did.
It is comfortable, lightweight, and does not require ironing or steaming! The matching top was sold out so I styled it with this adorable blush top with a knot in the front. This outfit is perfect for church, brunch, or date night. Best part? The price – you can pull off this look for only $38.
