Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone

“Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone”

I remember the first time I met my husband. We had an usual way of meeting that would seem uncomfortable to some but those who know us, aren’t surprised by our story.

I was 22 and I was living in the south east of the United States where people spoke in “ya’ll” and “howdy”. Coming from California, where I was raised, I felt like I stuck out like a sore thumb with my “like totally” and “hella cool.”

If you are from California, you know what I’m talking about.

One day, I received a message on MySpace (back when it was a thing) from this guy who said he was new to town and wanted to get together. Well, it turns out that he wasn’t exactly new to town but he did want to meet me. After a month or so, we got together and we literally became inseparable. We immediately hit it off and became the best of friends. Here we are, 8 years later and we have a lovely little family, a cute house and the perfect life I have always dreamed of.

I am thankful that I stepped outside my comfort zone, and although a little uncomfortable, I owned that moment and now, I couldn’t ask for anything more.
