I am told stepping out of you comfort zones is where opportunity is found. Leaving our families, friends and most importantly comfort behind almost 6 months ago (yes...half a year...eek!...where does time go?) I think I want to attest that opportunities are found out of your comfort zones. For better or worst you will grow as a person and find out things about yourself that you never knew were possible. Look at me...I guess I am a writer now? And people actually want me to contribute to their sites and even weirder than that...read what mine has to say. That's insanity.
You will never know what is out there if you don't take a jump...and that is horrifying. Take baby steps and do something you wouldn't do today. Something small and scare yourself. It's not so bad, reflect on it and work on something bigger next time...but what the hell do I know.
