Moving out of my comfort zone

comfort zoneOver the last several days, I’ve been evaluating parts of my own beliefs and values.

For the most part, I was pleased with what I discovered.  I also came to a few new perspectives on our culture and way of life.

And I discovered that I need to make some personal changes.

I’m going to make those changes.  I’m not just going to work on them.  For me, the changes are going to be real — and along with those changes will be some changes on what I blog about.

As long as I’ve been blogging, I’ve pretty much just blogged on things that were comfortable for me to talk about.  I stayed in my blogging comfort zone.

I’m going to be moving out of that comfort zone.

Stay tuned to this blog for more information.

    Should we be scared? 🙂 Seems other bloggers have been doing this too lately. Maybe it’s the end of summer angst or something.

    Whoa. You have me riveted to my seat. I’m sure it is going to be good though. I mean, unless you freak us out like Dan suggested. 😯

    If you had not authored this post, it could easily have come from me. I hear you and I truly understand. The path you are on, though different, is quite similar to mine. Happy traveling…-Nards

    @dcr – leaving my comfort zone implies that I may be uncomfortable with some of what I write. By extension, I would presume some of what I write will be uncomfortable to others.

    @teeni – I won’t promise that I won’t freak some folks out. I hope that it’ll be interesting.

    @Nards – Welcome to Exit78. I don’t know where this ride is going but my next post may be a little indicative.

    I think we all fall into that comfort zone from time to time. I have been feeling that too in many ways. Let’s see what your up to. 🙂

    @Beth Ellen – Part of my comfort zone is that I am normally quite reserved and don’t leave myself open very much. I’ve also had some e-mail exchanges with some old friends and new that have affected my perspectives on things.

    It’s my first time here so I’m not familiar with your usual writing style. But for me, stepping out of my comfort zone – as scary as it is sometimes – always makes me feel ALIVE.

    @Vered – Welcome to Exit78.

    It’s less about writing style and more about content and context — and it is a bit scary.

    Mike: Stepping out of your comfort zone is a good thing! [Just like Vered says…] With that said, I wish you the best my friend! I’ll be tuning in…
