Step Outside Your Comfort Zone. It’s Worth It! #NeverUncomfortable #Sanuk


Whether you’re prepping for your first online date, eating cuisine you thought you’d never like or speaking on your first panel, life is filled with uncomfortable moments. To be honest, most of these uncomfortable moments are totally avoidable. You could ignore the friends urging you to venture into modern dating, stick to your boring palate and never share your expertise publicly. Doesn’t that just sound BLAH?!

As I made my Facebook rounds over the weekend, a quote came across my feed:

 Quote about stepping outside of comfort zone
A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.
– Unknown
This is so true! While there is absolutely nothing wrong with staying in your comfort zone, you will absolutely miss out on opportunities by staying there. Recently, I was asked to take on a few side projects in addition my blogging duties here and the day job. It was one of those situations where I jumped at the idea, but once I thought about it I wasn’t too sure if I would be any good. I pride myself on being “more than capable” so having someone ask me to work on something I have no true experience in made me anxious. What if I messed up? What if they didn’t like my work? Well, you have to start somewhere! The fact that someone trusts you enough to delegate an entire project to you means you probably know more than you think you do. Once you set your mind on a task, do it  to the best of your ability. Eventually, you’ll have the world at your feet.

Once I received the guidelines for the new project, everything just came together. Not only am I realizing that I naturally excel in new territories, this opportunity has been a true learning experience. When I agreed to do the side projects, it was because I wanted to expand my knowledge and give myself a professional advantage. I was looking for a new challenge and I can honestly say I’ve risen to the occasion.


Life is full of awkward, embarrassing and downright tricky moments. But when you wear Sanuk shoes, you’ll be perfectly comfortable handling the kinds of situations that make others cringe. Find a pair that makes you comfortable at

  1. This is so true! Plus life would be so boring without taking chances!

  2. Taking a shot rarely leads to regrets. I’m glad it worked out for you! #SITS #creativelyauthentic

  3. Kudos to you for accepting and succeeding at projects outside your comfort zone! We often forget that everyone starts at zero for any project and skill set. We can never reach our full potential if we stay with what we know. Every time I see that quote it feels like a kick in the pants!
