Stepping out of your comfort zone is not the easiest thing to do. The older I get the more I continue to step out of my comfort zone. After my trip to Nashville I’ve been asking myself what could have happened if I visited 3 years ago like I wanted to. It made me realize that I need to take bigger steps and stop holding back. You aren’t living life if you aren’t taking chances right? A lot of times we hesitate and question ourselves because we are scared that we are gonna fail or disappoint the ones we love. Don’t doubt yourself, just do it. It is better to live life knowing you tried than to be asking yourself the “What if” questions. “What if people don’t like me?” “What if I can’t financially do it?” “What if I don’t like it?” These are some basic questions we always ask ourselves when it comes to making decisions on moving, starting a new job, starting school and much more. I believe that everything happens for a reason so just choose a path and everything else will fall into place.My decisions continue to change as I get older. We have to step out of our comfort zone, even if it means being alone and thousands of miles away from family. Sometimes that is what is needed to realize that you can make it on your own. Don’t stop until you make it to the top.
The other day someone asked me if I had the chance to would I go back to the past or jump to the future? Honestly, I would choose to go to the future. Even if I could go back to the past to do things differently, I feel like whatever I’m trying to change still won’t work out. Things happen for a reason and no matter how many different times you try to change things there is a reason why it didn’t work out in the first place. If I could go to the future I will be able to see if I am currently making the right decisions now to get to where I want to be in life. I am truly blessed to have experienced so much in the past. I do not regret one moment even when I felt like giving up. All the bumps in life are what make me the strong person I am today. Giving up won’t help you become successful. Keep pushing and don’t look back to the past and think what if I did this differently? Look to the future and make the changes now, in the present. Choose the life you want to live. You can choose who and what you want to be in your future. Keep your head up and never give up. So let me ask you, if you had to choose, would you go back to the past or go to the future?
