Stepping outside your comfort zone

You have probably noticed the rather lengthy gaps in-between my posts this year. Well where do I start, this year I have not only stepped outside my comfort zone, I have skipped leapt, stumbled, crawled, and almost fallen in a huge unflattering lump outside of it 🙂

This year so far can only be described as exhausting, exhilarating, and a bunch of other adjectives that my tired little brain can’t even think of right now.

It’s a funny thing, stepping outside of your comfort zone, the more you do it, the more you want to do it, the energy when you are brave and succeed replaces the fear and it can become quite addictive.

People look at my life and perceive my life to be one huge mini break,  I have been on quite a few little adventures this year, interstate, overseas and several mini weekend adventures to the beach…….

I have also however ….run events, I have built up my business, I have worked several 16 hour days, I  plan classes, and all of the while I have been participating in a 9 month intensive yoga training course.

I have taken on more this year than I even dreamt possible, and I have changed my circle of friends (as I have mentioned before), I have been removing all the toxicity from my life, and while it is busy, it is intense and will be for the next 2 months still – the rewards I am experiencing  are beyond what I ever imagined to feel.

I have learnt to accept that some friends were meant to be around for a short while, and rather than feel bad, I feel good, I understand that all the bad endings are all part of my experience this year, and for that I will always feel grateful.

I have finally learnt what it is that I want, I know it, I feel it.

I want growth (not literally – that clearly aint ever going to change :0 ) I set out this year to grow; I have grown emotionally, I am stronger physically, I have grown my business and I am constantly growing, achieving, I am embracing the tiny failures and set-backs as part of my growth process and I continue to step outside of my comfort zone and I can’t see myself ever look back anymore.

Thank you all for sticking around
