Outside My Comfort Zone

Twice in the last month I heard that in order to heal emotionally (from my sister) and physically (from my counselor) I need to move outside my comfort zone. Well I can tell you that blogging is certainly outside my comfort zone.

When I decided to blog, I thought that I would just have the title "Youthful Yogini" and leave it at that. But then I thought giving my first name would personalize it a bit. This was out of my comfort zone.

When I'm with my friends, I enjoy listening to them tell their stories of their lives, but when it's time for me to open up, I stay only within my comfort zone. One friend of mine explores her feelings with gusto, which I admire greatly. That's way too difficult for me--it may open me up to be vunerable--yikes! can't have that!!!

So I figured starting this blog would help me move a bit outside my comfort zone with relative anonymity. My hope is that you will help me move outside my comfort zone. Challenge me. I may not be up to the task, but at least this is a start.
