Often when I am asked a question of this type it helps me to go to a dictionary and look up the word. I know what it means but I need a clear definition to let my thoughts flow. One definition I found was ” Stimulation of the mind or emotions to a high level of feeling or activity”. I take that to mean what gets my rear end moving!
I like to be around people who think outside the box. I like to move outside my comfort zone. Notice that I did not say anything about being afraid. I am normally afraid to move out of my comfort zone, I have just learned to do it anyway. My best experiences have come from doing what I didn’t want to do when I didn’t want to do it.
Starting to write my blog was IN my comfort zone but sharing it with others, THAT was way outside the zone! Somewhere deep inside I heard the voice that said to do it anyway. As long as I am true to who I am it doesn’t matter if people think I am weird.
I am 55 years old, last year I took ice skating lessons. Ok, I only took two lessons but that was quite enough. I did it. I do not feel the need to do it again. I have a lot of experiences like that. I told the world in another blog how fat I was. I AM weird! Who cares?!
People who are willing to take risks are amazing. I told my husband the other day I’d rather break my leg doing something fun than by tripping over a piece of furniture. At least it will be a better story!
