For example, ever since I was a little kid and wrote to the Mickey Mouse Club inquiring how to be the next Musketeer, I wanted to act. The confidence was never there as an adult to get past the seedling stage. When I was asked to be part of the Reader’s Theatre at church, I declined. I was raised in a traditional church and was not comfortable with a dramatic performance taking place on an altar. However, I have enjoyed watching the Reader’s Theatre and have taken away something valuable from these short skits. With Balance Challenge #2 in mind, when I was asked to be part of the Reader’s Theatre again? This time, I said yes! We had our first run-through last night.
I depend on that Spirit to empower me and see me through all this new stuff. A favorite part of the call back in Hollywood was having dinner with my darling Nephew Baby Benson (stepping out of The Zone has its perks).
Why not hop on and challenge yourself to break the predictable day-to-day cycle of your life? Try taking a class, driving a different route to work, skipping instead of walking, cooking an exotic dish or doing something that you thought you would never attempt? It can be a big or small step outta The Zone.
But be warned! Leaving your Comfort Zone can lead to a balanced, more exciting life!
