Today’s Gem of Insight #133

DSC_0390_Iván_Melenchón_Serrano_MorgueFileToday’s insight journey led me to the idea that sometimes it is more important to expand our comfort zone rather than step outside of it. It is common to hear people encouraging others to step outside of their comfort zone in an effort to convince them to try new things, meet new people, and open themselves up to new experiences, and that is to be commended. However, oftentimes, those individuals who are convinced to step outside of their comfort zone after a period of time simply end up re-entering their comfort zone and continuing on with their lives as before.

Yet, can you imagine what life would be like if those same individuals were to expand their comfort zone, whether slightly or drastically, and then commit to maintaining that expansion? Consider the new encounters, experiences, and opportunities that they might have, encounters, experiences, and opportunities that they would not likely have come to know had they not taken that leap and expanded their zone of familiarity.

Though expanding one’s comfort zone can be a challenge, especially if the individual is not accustomed to doing so, the quality that such an act will add to that individual’s life will more than make up for the effort that has been invested. In short, nothing ventured, nothing gained, and in this case, the gain is more than worth the venture. #lovebythedrop
