I went surfing. It wasn’t the best surf, but I really wanted to get out. I tried the day before, but it was even worse. So I was adamant. But, I didn’t last long. There were only three other people out in the ocean; I got paranoid about sharks, then felt tugs at my leg rope. I’d only been in 20 minutes.
But, when I get chilled, I get out. I guess it’s listening to my instincts (even when they are irrational). I hope by doing this, I’m telling my instincts that I value them and will listen to them. It’s so important.
There is a thing about leaning into your fear. Living just outside your comfort zone. But it’s just that - ‘just’ outside of your comfort zone. A place where you may fail, but it won’t hurt too hard. Let’s live there. We will grow, experience more, learn more, live more dreams.
How do you live out of your comfort zone? Do you listen to your instincts?
