Getting Out of Your Comfort Zone
“Live life as if everything is rigged in your favor.” ~Rumi
It is often times feels scary to go outside of your comfort zone, but it is necessary. I think it is really true that you must move out of your comfort zone and try new things. This is how we grow and realize our dreams. That is what I am doing with my photography project, which is beginning to take some shape after a lot of time and hard work. It is new territory and, at times, overwhelming, but very much worth it, and I want to see this project and vision through to its completion (there is still much work to complete). I think in life you must be willing to take risks, go outside your comfort zone, and share your work. I am not sure what will come of this project, but I know that sometimes you just have to have faith and trust that you end up where you are meant to be with your work, while trusting in the process, if you are willing to keep working at it and showing up each day. Trust is my word for this year, and I am working on having more trust. I look forward to sharing this project once it is completed.
Additionally, I also found this short TED Talk video by Elizabeth Gilbert, writer, really helpful.
