I have left my Comfort Zone

Stream of Consciousness Sunday!  Brought to you by Jana's Thinking Place

 

Today’s (totally optional) prompt:

What have you done recently or would like to do that’s outside your comfort zone?

 
 
 
 
 
I feel like I have been out of my comfort zone since June.  I am really tired of feeling this way.  I am tired of thinking about our move and I am really tired of not being settled.  This is out of my comfort zone. I like to think of myself as pretty easy going and laid back...
 
Maybe, I am not, maybe this is the real me?!  Now, I guess that would be even more out of my comfort zone lol!  I guess the real feeling right now is not knowing which way is up!
 
I have never been good at directions.  I even taught Geography for two years, guess that is why they let me teach History after that :-)  I am out of my comfort zone by not knowing simple things like which highway to get on to get back home when I am lost.  I know, I know, I have a GPS, but the constant "rerouting" message really gets on my nerves!  When we lived in Atlanta, all I had to do was drive around until I hit 75 or even 85.  Eventually, I would make it home!  LOL!
 
Ok, that is it, my time is up!  5 minutes did not go by fast enough for me this time!  LOL!
 
 
 
Make sure to visit Jana for the rules!  Join in on the fun!!

  1. Can really relate to the getting lost part. When I first moved to AZ, and got a job far-ish from home - getting lost was a regular occurrence. I am hideously, hopelessly directionally-challenged.

    I can stand in my apartment, pointing north - and be right about 10% of the time.

    Which is really stupid, when you consider that the desk sits on the north wall, the printer on the south (don't ask), the bedroom to the east, and the front door to the west.

    And I KNOW this - really, really know this - until I'm called upon to demonstrate said knowledge.

  2. being unsettled is completely uncomfortable... and it is a great lesson to being comfortable with being uncomfortable. I hope that makes sense.... (clear as mud, eh?) Grateful I found you via SOC Sunday this week!

  3. Oh man, I can so relate. We moved a lot when I was younger, and then I just moved in 2011 with my husband and sons from Texas to Poland. So stressful. Now we are gearing up to move back to Texas, and I can feel the tension swirling in my head.

    Call me, we'll get drinks and relax. ;-)

    1. Wow! What part of TX are you moving to? We are in the DFW area.

  4. Moving can be annoying mainly because you have to relearn how to get to the places that you like/want to get to.

    I wish you luck as you adjust and hope your GPS voice is at least tolerable when it tells you it is rerouting.
