Knocked Out of My Comfort Zone
Saturday, April 26, 2014
Change is not so hard, but maintaining it takes a little more work. I have been very observational lately, looking at my life from the outside in. Professionally, I am doing quite well. Personally, though, I need some work.
The other day while working out with my coach, I had a flash of annoyance (hatred is closer but not quite right), and it made me think about why I "hate" him sometimes. The instant thought in my head is because he pushes me out of my comfort zone. You can't hate a guy for that, though, because without him, I would probably have never left my comfort zone in the first place.
It's weird to think about it, here's this guy who is nearly half my age, and he is helping me to transform my life. I am not always the most willing participant, and he does put up with a lot of my whining, I'm tired, sweaty, THIRSTY, and I don't always think I have the stamina to go on. It's no joke, I have changed a lot in the last 5-6 months, not just my weight on the scale, but my thinking have taken on a more positive bent, although it seems I frequently need to be reminded that things are more positive than they may look at first glance.
I've been pushed way out of my comfort zone, but sometimes, I still want to stay there. That thought is fleeting though, because change is good, and I'm just playing follow the leader.
