Like most dogs, Lola has the ability to sniff out even the tiniest patch of sunlight in the house in which to lay down. When the sun spot moves, so does Lola. She’s constantly moving and adapting to keep herself comfortable. How unlike that I am in my life. My “comfort zone” has a spot so well worn from my sitting in it that it’s threadbare. It’s so difficult for me, an introvert who is terrified of rejection, to put my life out in public the way I’ve begun to do. I tend to be the sort of person who gets incredibly jazzed about a new idea or life change, but then quickly gets bored, loses interest, or, more often than not, is chased away by fear. But somehow this feels new, different. I’m simply sharing my truest self (which, in many ways, is the most scary thing I’ve done, actually) and hoping people like what I have to say. Though I’m still new on this journey, it’s made me feel like I’ve conquered a major obstacle in my life, and for that I’m proud. May you be constantly chasing your warm spots in the sun, friends.
