Stepping Outside of your Comfort Zone

Happy Tuesday everyone. I want to start out by saying I am super excited to be sharing some changes I have decided to make to the "faith" portion of my website. I noticed after studying my blog analytics that y'all are WAY more prone to reading and following my personal devotions when I share something from the heart. As important as knowing the bible is, I found that my "Events of the Bible" series wasn't getting the attention it deserved both from myself and from my readers. I want my devotions to be something I am passionate about and something y'all want to read also. 

That being said, one of my favorite things ever is quotes. I could pin quotes ALL day long on Pinterest. So I thought I would start sharing a favorite quote of mine every week.

Side note: Huge shout out to my sister who obviously got the artistic gene. I couldn't have the patience to write this beautifully even if I tried.

"Are you really happy or just really comfortable?" 

Like most girls in high school I am all about my comfort zone. I like to have my routine of knowing where I am going to sit in class, who will be in the class with me, where I will meet my friend at the mall, who my "group" will be this year, what my sport or "thing" is that I will be known for, blah blah blah. Don't we all? My comfort zone walls are definitely put up around people. I have had some of the same best friends since I was in elementary school and because I genuinely enjoy the company or them and my entire family, I tend to not wander off and create new friendships. This isn't always a bad thing to like your friends or family, but I have realized in the last year that you can always have more.

Over the past year, I have branched out of my comfort zone a LOT. I am not gonna lie it didn't always work out. I applied and interviewed at several places when I was looking for a job (which was very nerve racking for me) and many of them didn't work out. I walked up and down the entire shopping mall talking to the manager of each place asking if they hire at 16. This was DEFINITELY out of my comfort zone. However, I now work at a place I enjoy for the time being and love my co-workers. I thought I would NEVER get hired at where I work now but because I took a leap of faith and prayed about it, it worked out. God has bigger plans then you think girls.... sometimes you just need a push. So I am going to be your PUSH! And in return, y'all need to push me!

What should you highlight in your bible?
Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.""
