weekly mantra

I used to be a pro at staying in my comfort zone. But somewhere along the way I decided to make myself uncomfortable.

I was completely out of my comfort zone the first time I went to a yoga class — which was completely alone, by the way — at Cleveland Yoga.

I was completely out of my comfort zone when I started at Syracuse University as a senior; and when I signed up for my first 5k ; and when I’ve made every major life decision, including the decision to labor naturally with Ari.

But you grow from those moments that test you. And you learn when they don’t work out the way you intended or hoped.

So my mantra this week is to remember… that the magic happens when I step out of my comfort zone; when I’m uncomfortable or challenged, mentally, physically and/or emotionally.

Never accept comfortable. Always keep pushing. And you’ll always be growing.

Yes, I love this post and the image! I have been pushing myself outside my comfort zone lately as well and I feel so good about it, even though it is extremely terrifying.
