Stepping out of your Comfort Zone


“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” Neale Walsh

The good ol’ comfort zone… So many people, including myself, have missed out on opportunities and chances. Opportunities and chances that had the potential to change my life and my outlook. But I was too afraid.  I was scared of the unknown. I was scared of failure, getting my heartbroken, and embarrassing myself. I figured that as long as I stuck to what I knew, I couldn’t go wrong…. right?


I lived my life within my comfort zone. I lived my life in a way that pleased everyone else, but me.  It felt like i was walking through a revolving door. In and out the same way, expecting to arrive at a different destination. Insanity. I was unhappy, miserable actually. My brand was suffering, I felt like I was missing a huge chunk of my self. I really didn’t know what else to do. I felt that I had did everything I possibly could.  I was being a mama, running the site while avoiding public appearances, & going to school overtime. My life had turned routine. I was always doing the same things. Creature of comfort. I was bored, I was lonely AND I was stagnant.  I kept looking at my life and wondering if this was all it had to offer me.

And it wasn’t. I slowly started to realize that I was cheating myself. From actually experiencing what the world, in its entirety, had to offer me. Just because it was comfortable, didn’t make it right. Honestly, it was toxic. I was injecting a poison into my spirit and expecting it to flourish. But instead, I was slowly killing myself. Draining my own soul. And it was misery..  I had to find a way out… So I slowly started changing my day to day. Becoming more social, going out more, and taking a break from NHJ.  I needed a new approach on life. I had to get a grip.

Say good bye to your comfort zone. Say good bye to routine. Say good bye to what’s holding you back.

Life has taught me that nothing amazing starts within your comfort zone. I’ve learned that the first step is the hardest, most uncomfortable and nerve racking step you’ll ever take. It’s going to hurt, you might even cry, you’ll sweat and shake your way through it…… But it will be the best first step you could have ever taken. I speak from experience. I had the most nerve racking first step outside of my comfort zone. I wanted to sit in a corner and hide. I’m shy by nature, quiet and observant. But I knew that wouldn’t help me. I literally had to cabbage patch my way out of my comfort zone. And honestly, it was definitely the highlight of my month. For the first time, I was in control of my future. Things changed immediately. I actually caught a glimpse of what God instilled in me. And HE Rewarded me for my faith. And it was AMAZING!!! The blessings that came from that small step of faith, left me teary eyed. But excited. And very anxious.

I have officially decided to say good bye to my comfort zone. I will no longer be a creature of habit. Personal life changes, brand changes, business changes. Can we say “Excited, much”? lol I am. I really am. I thank all of you for your patience and support. I have finally found the wings so many of you believed I had… I believe in myself enough to take flight.

Believe me. It’s not easy. But it’s worth it. Say good bye to misery, and Hello to your blessing… Just take that one step. God’s got it.


Peace & Blessings,

Sierra Michelle.
