comfort zone.

Life is about growing, getting out of your comfort zone, and trying new things. We do these things in hopes to become something better, love yourself more, become a little more happy. I have always said that change isn't always fun, but necessary. I think it is good to take a good look at yourself, and realize the areas to which you need some improvement.

Every night when I put my Devin to bed, I always say to him...

"Can we try to make tomorrow better?"

 and every night before I fall asleep I tell myself...

"Tomorrow I am going to try harder, have more patience,
 and be better than I was today."  
As weird as it sounds I get anxiety inviting people over to my house. I get worried over every little detail. This is something I have wanted to change, but it has been a lot of baby steps for me to do so. We invited a friend over for football, and it was so fun...we did it again. I love doing the MommyParties, because it does force me to meet new people and invite people over.
I usually just look at the skinny colored jeans, telling myself they won't look good on me. Last time I went clothes shopping, I tried them on...and bought them...and love them. Maybe they don't look as good on me as someone else, but I love the way they make me feel. So whatev.
I went to a Relief Society gathering, I got to know a few more ladies in our neighborhood. This is totally out of my comfort zone, I really patted myself on the back for this one.
When I turned into a stay at home Mom, I realized I didn't have as many friends outside of work. As a 30+ year old, it only gets harder to make new friends. I have tried to reach out, and have had some reach out to me. It feels good to have made some really good friends.

I am proud of what I have accomplished already in 2013. I hope that I can keep going strong for the rest of the year.

Skinny jeans are dang comfortable (if you get the right pair, anyway). Way to go getting out of your comfort zone!

I know that moving out of one's comfort zone is not an easy thing to do. I'm a relatively cautious person and like to feel secure--even in something as commonplace as traveling. And going to places where there will be large gatherings of people I don't know very well is out of my comfort zone--but there are times I have to do it. I keep telling myself that maybe I'll be an extravert in heaven!
