Be Bold

NoFear

All progress is made outside of the comfort zone.

I WISH I could take credit for such an awesome thought. However, that honor goes to Tim Ferris (he has a cool podcast too!!), famous entrepreneur and author of The Four Hour Work Week. I can’t even say I’ve finished the book, even though it sits on my book shelf. I can say, that what I did read (I will finish it!!….After I finish Son of a Witch..) was inspiring and a good kick in the booty. Get off the couch (comfort zone), have a few impossible ideas daily, and boom! Who knows what’s in store, as long as you are following what you love.

This line in the book especially spoke to me because it seems like after college, my desire to push myself to above and beyond… stopped. It just kind of paused itself as I looked for a job to pay my bills, roommate troubles, dating someone new, living in a new city with no family and only a few friends nearby. I’ll admit it, it was out of my comfort zone just to move to Texas! Maybe it overwhelmed my system and I needed some time to reboot.

Whatever the reason, I didn’t push myself. When a wandering soul beings to feel restless, it’s not just a new physical place it craves, but a new outlook, activities, attitude, and perspective.  I truly believe that when one’s soul starts feeling restless, it’s for a good reason and one of the first steps is to start looking at things, places, view points and people that are out of the comfort zone.

I’m bringing this up because, I have finally pushed myself into something I’m a little afraid of, a little intimidated by and could pretty much fail at if I don’t give it my all. I’m going back to school for massage therapy!!!

I start tomorrow, bright and early…. and I’m terrified. I was never huge into anatomy or bones or muscles but…. It’s something I’ve never delved into and I predict I am going to love it. If I don’t love it for itself, I can at least love getting out of my comfort zone and meeting new people.

I’m going to be the most upstreamist massage therapist that this world (or just state?) has ever witnessed! The medical world won’t know what hit it in a years time ;).
