  1. I love that quote. I’m doing my best to live like that too. Constantly pushing myself out of my comfort zone and trying new things. It’s terrifying but also very exciting!

      I have seen the quote a little different but I also want to live this way. It is a constant push but I try to push myself and try new things.

  2. This is so important at our age isn’t it? We can get stuck in a rut out of habit and miss out on so much. I was in a job I where I was feeling unappreciated and fairly cheesed off but too scared to step out and risk finding something new. When I finally stepped out I found something so much better – I keep thinking how miserable I’d be now if I hadn’t stepped out of my comfort zone and been brave.

  3. Yes, stepping out of the comfort zone can be really tough. If I am not comfortable with an outfit then you won’t force me to go out, I kid you not! Thank you for sharing this, I like your pretty pink sunnies 🙂

  4. Good Afternoon Victoria, Many of us, find straying from our comfort zone, a difficult thing to do. We are content with what we know, we know the routines which make us feel safe and secure.
    I love the quote by Hunter S Thompson….. and yes I want to be the same. I want to grow older knowing I have lived life to the full and that I have not missed an opportunity.
    ….. but first I need to convince myself that I need to get out of my comfort zone…. I say that with a smile on my face.
    Best Wishes

      Daphne I so understand. There are times I zoom out of my comfort zone to crawl back in just as fast. I am very much a work in progress, but when I am sitting in my rocker many years from now, I want to have no regrets.

  5. Thank you for this important reminder. It’s timely for me that you would mention a new exercise class as one of your examples. I’m bored to tears with my “comfort zone” workouts and have been looking into new group classes, but I keep holding back. Time to step out of my comfort zone. Thanks for linking up at #BloggingGrandmothersLinkParty.

  6. Girl the glasses and everything! If I bought those, my granddaughter would probably take them. I always know I’m out of my comfort zone when my 17-year old says “I like that MiMi.” Keep stepping it up and enjoying the journey.
