F*** The Comfort Zone

Updated: Sep 6, 2022

Straight up, screw the comfort zone. The truth is: the comfort zone is holding you back. Obviously, we stay in our comfort zone because it's where we are comfortable at, but the comfort zone is where dreams die. It's all about mindset when it comes to comfort zone. You become so complacent with it, you don't ever wanna step out. The most amount of growth comes from being so uncomfortable you feel like you are about to break, and this pertains to so many aspects in life. This is why I'm a firm believer everyone should jump outside their comfort zone.

I'll be the first to say it absolutely sucks, but I will also promise up and down that the challenges and lessons you learn by stepping out of the comfort zone are some of the best ways to reach your highest potential. Want to see change? Get real uncomfortable real quick. I'm talking about experiencing the lowest of the lows, learn the lessons that come with it, and come out on top to reach your highest potential. We are all given the same 24, the difference is what you do with the time you are given. Wanna start a business? Go for it, risk everything.. work your ass off and manifest the success you will have one day. Want to build confidence? Do something that makes you cringe even thinking of it. Embrace being uncomfortable, and I can promise you the confidence will follow. It's scary for sure, and I will never pretend like it's not the most scary, shitting-your-pants moment ever.

There are a few different examples I can speak on where I got so uncomfortable, it naturally became the new comfort zone for me. One is starting my business, which I feel would be a better story down the road. The other is finding confidence through being so uncomfortable, but I faked it until it naturally came. A little back story: I use to compete in pageants and modeled, which takes huge amounts of confidence, but I didn't have it. When I say I use to look in the mirror and just cry over every aspect about myself because it wasn't what I wanted, I mean it. I use to tear myself apart every time I looked at myself. I'm not over here going to pretend like those moments don't still happen. We are our own worse critics. But nah, fuck that- love yourself. No matter how much you wanna change aspects about yourself, remember to find that love from within. Speaking from a female perspective, I always looked at others and compared myself. I know how tempting it is to always do it. DON'T! You have no idea where the other person came from. I set my goal to "be able to wear lingerie as a shirt". I loved the look, but felt as if I didn't have it in me.

If you know anything about me I am recently separated from my husband. I was so worried that this time in my life was going to be destructive. It's not though, and I'm doing everything in my power to grow through the mania. I told myself I was going to finally really step outside my comfort zone, and I wore lingerie out as a shirt. I knew if I didn't walk around like I owned the place, others would sense how uncomfortable I was. That night, I walked into the bar in small town Elk County like I was Kim K and this was completely normal for me. When I say that night was so uncomfortable but made me feel so empowered, that was the only thing that mattered. After that, it became the new norm to keep stepping out of my comfort zone in outfits. I stopped the excuses that "I'm not skinny enough" or "I'm a mom, I cant wear that". NO! I did it for me, and it was the best uncomfortable feeling I've ever felt, because it changed the way I look at myself. It changed the way I carry myself, and the way I talk to myself.

Remember: if you are brave enough to be able to step outside your comfort zone, you will 100% grow from the experience. I'm a huge advocate for fully sending any decision, so here's your sign not to slightly step out of your comfort zone, but fully send it. Make yourself so uncomfortable you don't even recognize yourself and watch the growth happen. Embrace being uncomfortable, but you will feel so empowered in the end.

If I stayed in my comfort zone, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I have changed the mindset of hundreds by showing my body type and being comfortable in my skin. It’s okay to be you. It’s okay to be and look different. We aren’t all suppose to be 5’6 and 120lbs. stepping out of your comfort zone isn’t easy but if I didn’t, I would be on the self love journey I am on now. It’s a beautiful

journey and I’m glad I can bring those vibes to Fiercely Dynamic Fashion
