Life Begins Outside Your Comfort Zone

Thursday, February 07, 2013

The title of my blog was my inspirational message from SparkCoach today. It is so appropriate. I received an invitation to attend a luncheon at the Heritage. This is a 55 yr old + community. I am interested in residing there someday, but I am not sure when.

As long as I am caregiving, I will remain in my home. Yet I have time to downsize and move items to appropriate places. I was outside of my comfort zone for a short time. Then I found out I taught the children of one person. I taught the siblings of the activity director and monitored her in study hall when she was in high school. She was in the class of 1976. Ouch!

I think over the many times I worked outside of my comfort zone. Conducting the funeral for my cousin's husband ... including writing it....deepened my faith. Giving my husband dialysis... Dealing with my RA and getting it into remission.

Life does begin outside my comfort zone. I am inspired.

    I've also thought of moving into a community like that but I also understand wanting to be in your old home where you're all set up for as long as possible especially since you've done such a good job of setting up to take care of your husband.

    My husband and I do dialysis at home too!!! I am glad that we are able to do it aren't you? I think it is much healthier for does get hard on us sometimes though...we have been doing it at home for 2 years but I am just now finding time for me....I am glad you are stepping out of your comfort zone..I don't know that I would call it that though ...I think I would call it "broadening your comfort zone....learning new things and doing things you are afraid to do grows you as a person....
