In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Intricate.”
When was the last time I did something outside my comfort zone?
A few days ago.
I went out of this house and to town. I literally went out of my boundary. Not of morality, but the emotional and physical boundary.
You see, I mostly hide myself in the jungle, within 2.5 acres of my property. I hear my neighbors and traffic so I know they are there, but don’t see them. It is my safe place.
But, I forced myself out the other day. I went to the group bereavement counseling and did some grocery shopping. It was good that I did it, and I will do it again.
It might be hard to believe, but I am a spontaneous individual and have done things odd and scary in the past. As a result, I am where I am today. I have been a recluse since I left my last job, and close friends left town. I write and doodle a lot now, which I enjoy.
As for doing things new and out of my element, I think I am doing it every day. New and unfamiliar situations are intricately woven into each day, and I have no choice but push myself to go beyond the limit.
