You might have seen on Facebook that I was away most of last week. I was lucky to be chosen as a parent helper for the school camp to Wilson’s Prom, a popular natural beauty destination. Not only was it my first time there, it was also my first time camping. Most people are surprised when I tell them that…I think I’m the oldest camping virgin in the world!

A moment of wonder – this gorgeous kookaburra let me get up so close and we hung out for a while. It was worth the early morning wake up. Maybe s/he has a message about flying up and over my comfort zone?!


Before I went away I was drawing an imaginary line close around myself then pointing out there to describe to people where my comfort zone was and where camping lay. But it’s definitely not the first time in recent months I’ve stepped outside that circle. If you’ve followed my blog you’ll know I’ve made some huge leaps outside that cosy sweet place of comfort and familiarity.

In fact at one point I felt like I’d pushed off from the shoreline, bobbing in my little boat, with no view of the shoreline buy cialis daily online ahead of me and no turning back. That was waving goodbye to my comfort zone and doing something that I knew would change the direction of my life. At the time, it was can i buy lamisil at walmart the scariest thing I could ever remember doing.

But what really is our comfort zone?

Brené Brown describes it as  “Where our uncertainty, scarcity and vulnerability are minimized — where we believe we’ll have access to enough love, food, talent, time, admiration. Where we feel we have some control.”

It’s a made up story of where I feel safe. It’s my ego, that ultimate protector of all things illusionary, telling me to keep quiet, play safe, don’t rock the boat, don’t try or you’ll fail, stay home and stay small. 

Yet we all have choice, moment to moment. To stay safe or play out loud. To say it or not say it. To go for it or not go for it. To follow our heart or close it off. To listen to our intuition or stuff it down. To go camping and have amazing experiences or stay home and do what you always do. will make it easier with a scooter rental in Barcelona

What will you choose?

Be brave and go for it, fellow Soul Traveller!
