There are quite a few people in the world who like to go on trips. It’s hard to beat the kind of thrills you can get when you set out from the comfort of your home to see something new. You can get that feeling of exploration that our ancestors must have felt when they were first setting out to see what was out there. Traveling gives people the chance to meet new people, taste new foods, and see some of the most glorious natural beauty that can be found.
You have to get your mind on board before your physical being can jump on and cooperate. My latest comfort zone challenge was being on camera for over an hour doing my own live webTV show plus all the videos to promote it. If I had tried to put my body in front of the camera without mentally preparing, my brain would have said what do you think you’re doing. We don’t do face time with cameras. We work on the other side of the viewfinder. Are you crazy? This is way out of our comfort zone. We’ve never done this before. What makes you think we can do it now? How successful do you think I’d have been if I didn’t move ‘star on camera’ out of the small impossible circle of safety and into the mammoth vacuum of space called the possible that exists in all of your brains?
There are many ways to live. A friend once lived in a tent. Others I’ve met lived in a school bus in the desert. I have known people who take care of other people’s homes as a way to live without rent. Some people build their own homes and cabins. Others get jobs that include a place to live as part of the deal. Still others Read about my travels and work when they can, living in any way that they can as they go.
Unless your conquer comfort zone circle includes skydiving, mountain climbing, or tracking wild animals in Africa, bodily harm or death is not an issue so you can survive the imagined worst case scenario, which usually doesn’t happen. The more you must reach and stretch to accomplish an endeavor the Travel blog more rewarding it will feel.
Is it something everyone can do? Or is it something reserved only for the intellectuals and the computer geeks? Is it something that involves math? Or maybe even science?
If you’d like to go the extra mile, write out your outfit ideas! It’s better to spend time at home doing this than on your trip when you could be out and about enjoying your vacation.
