One of my personal and athletic goals for this year was to work on "getting comfortable with the uncomfortable." I hear this quoted often as an athlete and I am hearing it even more often now as an entrepreneur. As a person with a fair amount of anxiety that perpetually fears failure, I am very much used to both avoiding change and seeking out routes where I am confident of the outcome. Meaning: I've spent a large portion of my life, whether I've realized it or not, letting my fears and insecurities control me and I know a part of me has always felt unfulfilled because of it. Now I am learning to push those comfort zones, even if somedays it means "testing the waters" with a quick splash of my toe or diving in head first and risking failure. 2015 has in many ways been a year of struggle, but also a year of personal growth, finding freedom in being myself and taking risks. It's been a year of not just knowing of God's mercy and grace, but letting go of control and clinging to it.
A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there."
