    Great insight, there is a difference between extending your comfort zone and pushing yourself too far. I think it is great you tried out the rope course even though you were afraid. I did a similar activity with my family in Nova Scotia last Fall and was also really afraid. The first few courses I was a bit paralyzed (I think I blacked out crossing some of the bridges way up in the trees) but by the end I was much braver. I actually ended up taking a friend back to the courses a few months later!

    Way to go! I used to be so good about pushing myself outside of my comfort zone, there wasn't really anything I would not try and I didn't really have any hard and fast absolutes that restricted me. My one true and big fear of dogs didn't even really stand in my way. It was pretty much my only one, so I was able to focus on it and work on it constantly. That all changed when I took on a new position. While I still technically had the same employer, I moved agencies, locations, industries, and position level. I didn't actually make the move because I wanted to, but for job security. I suddenly found myself in a survival mode – and not just within the workplace, my mindset spilled into every part of my life. I learned what I needed to do and nothing beyond that. I was scared of lots of things all of a sudden, and I was always feeling paralyzed when faced with something new. I'm not in that state anymore, thankfully, but I still find it so hard to step outside of my comfort zone, when it comes to work at least. It's like I got so used to that (necessary at the time) survival mode that I don't know anything else. I'm trying to be conscious of it and push myself, while still respecting my newly found boundaries.SarahSweet Spontaneity

    I rarely step out of my comfort zone but that's something that I need to change. I really enjoyed this post and did a ropes course a few years ago and it was so fun and challenging.xoxo, Jenny || Breakfast at Lillys

    It's so good that you had people there to encourage you. It makes all the difference when you have supportive people around you. Well done for just going for it! I absolutely hate flying and everytime someone asks me why I still travel so much I just tell them that I don't want something like that to stop me from doing something that will make me happy!

    You are so amazing! It's such a feat to conquer fears and not feel stuck in the P zone. I need to adopt the idea of stepping out of my comfort zone.. I'm super bad about saying no before giving it a shot! Nicole // Chronicling Home

    I love jumping out of my comfort zone! I can't think of a time I've ever felt anywhere close to the P zone, but it is so awesome that you were so brave and took a step out of your comfort zone!

    I hope your allergies get better soon. I am definitely someone who hates leaving their comfort zone. I am trying to work on it but it is hard.

    Stepping out of your comfort zone is SO important. I recently did this by interviewing for a promotion at my job that I'm not even sure I'm ready for. Yikes! It was uncomfortable, but afterward, you realize that it wasn't as scary as you originally thought. Congrats to you for taking that ultimate leap to battle your fears! I'm scared of heights as well, but I've also jumped out of a plane…just ironic.

    So glad to hear that you allowed yourself to experience something new while also maintaining a clear sense of self-awareness! I, too, feel as though this year has been a push outside of all things that I knew to be "comfortable", but I'm looking at it as an opportunity to GROW instead. It seems like this literal representation of you leaving your comfort zone helped, and I'm so glad!xo,Melissa | These words are my own.

    Good for you for pushing your boundaries! I try to live by the Elanor Roosevelt quote to do something every day that scares you. Even if that's dreading going to the gym, or reaching out to a "big" blogger about something! It makes the big things a bit easier for me! XOXOMarie H.Progression By Design
