Sometimes we just have to take time out of our busy lives and relax a little, socialise with good friends. I often find it difficult to go out, I think I'm a closet agoraphobic, but when I'm home and settled into doing something, I find it really hard to stop what I'm doing and go out. Maybe, it's something to do with my shoes. When I take my shoes off the minute I walk through my door, I'm loathe to put them back on again except when I have to leave for work in the morning. So, I blame my agoraphobia on my shoes.
I guess, it's all about leaving your comfort zone. Many of us are too scared to leave our comfort zone and try something different. Once we remove our shoes and settle down on the sofa, that is it for us. But once we make the effort, put on our shoes and leave that zone, we often have a pleasant surprise and are shocked with ourselves that we even contemplated not leaving the house.
So my message to all of you out there, is make a conscious effort to do something out of the ordinary this week. Take the plunge, leave your comfort zone. Do something different. Otherwise, you might regret missing out on a good evening with good wine, good food and good friends!
Have a great week!
