Enough of Comfort Zones!

Enough. I never feel that I’m enough. Long ago I realized that there will always be weaker and stronger, mentally challenged and highly intellectual, fearful and bold. I fall somewhere in the middle on every count.

While I no longer feel that I have to prove anything to anyone, I continue to question whether or not I’m living up to my potential. Am I applying my best efforts to all I do? Am I learning? Am I growing? Could I be better than I am?

The answer to the first three questions – from somewhere deep inside – is most often “not enough.” The last question is always answered with a yes.

So, how do I get to be better? I need to learn. I need to grow. I should begin by learning something new each day. I should challenge myself to move beyond my comfort zone. I should read more and write more, and pray more and love more.

Maybe the answer to my dilemma is that none of us is ever enough because there is always room to grow.

Starting now, I resolve to stray from my comfort zone. Beginning today I will challenge myself to do something I haven’t done before – each day. I feel the need to grow, to be better, to do better. How about you? Would you like to join me on this journey?
