Writing for a purpose can sometimes be the hardest thing; if I’m forced to write, the result would be a fully blank sheet of paper. But if I write just for the sake of holding a pen, I could get like ten billion words out. Is it just me or do other people feel that way?
Also, I feel like my previous blog posts have been the most random things ever and they’re mostly about writing, but eh. That’s what my blog is about after all – it’s what I think and how I feel. It’s a part of me. It even says right there on the top that this blog is a teeny tiny glance into my mind. A mind that never stops learning and exploring, a very very curious mind at that.
Sometimes writing can be a struggle. At least that’s what I tell myself when I can’t think of anything, but that is completely false. I mean look at how easily I’m writing right now. It might seem to me like I’ve got nothing to write about, or that my mind is completely empty, but in reality, it’s all just psychological. Once I put my pen down on paper and just start writing, there’s no stopping me. It’s the best feeling honestly, just writing out my thoughts and the first things that come to mind, nonstop.
What exactly is this so-called comfort zone? Well, a comfort zone is a state of mind, you could say; a situation that you would feel the most relaxed and comfortable being in. Whether it be in bed all snuggled up, watching your favorite series, or sitting in your reading nook surrounded by books, everyone has a comfort zone.
Let me tell you a thing or two that I’ve learned about the comfort zone from experience. Although you may feel safe being in your comfort zone, it’s not exactly your friend. Of course, it may seem like a beautiful place – and I’m not saying it isn’t – but by staying inside your comfort zone, you’re not allowing yourself to grow as a person.
Now though it may sound scary to some, you’ve got to get out of your comfort zone. Preferably sooner than later. By doing so, you’re allowing yourself to be more productive and bring about positive changes in your life. You’ll discover new things, learn stuff about yourself that you didn’t already know, and you’ll find yourself happier than ever. You just need to believe in yourself and take that leap of faith. When you get out of your comfort zone, it enables you to feel more confident, boosts your self-esteem, and it also helps you to overcome fears. You’ll feel proud of yourself, believe me.
That’s all I have to say, for now at least. Just thought I’d put it out there.
