Leaving my comfort zone
A couple of weeks ago I came back from a family vacation. For a week my husband, kids and I travelled in and around Munich, where my parents live.
Luckily we had wonderful weather and so one day we decided to drive up a hill by a chairlift where there was a climbing forest with different levels of difficulty.
I wasn’t really up to it but Noa, my 17 year old daughter was so enthusiastic that I didn’t want to disappoint her.
So the 2 kids and I climbed up on the medium level of difficulty which seemed to be ok……
As I passed the first challenge I realised that maybe I overestimated my abilities and thought of discontinuing when I suddenly realised:There’s no way back!
People already behind us and only one person a time can pass each part of the parkour …….OMG, I felt paralysed……my whole body shaking (luckily I remembered that shaking is a “stress-valve”), my head not thinking straight, panicking……
It took a while with some deep breathing and actually watching my kids in front of me, how they mastered the unknown and their support: “Mom, you can do it, just do exactly what we tell you to do…..yes, wonderful, you are amazing, well done!”, which made my focus come back.
Slowly but surely I finished the path and when my feet touched the ground suddenly an amazing feeling of accomplishment filled my whole body!
I threw my arms up and shouted: “Yes, I did it!”
It took a while until this feeling subsided but every time I look at the pictures or tell people about it, I can connect to that moment and it makes me feel proud of myself.
So I will incorporate leaving my comfort zone every now and then into my life!
Did you ever leave your comfort zone? How did it make you feel? I would love to hear your story.
