Have you ever desperately wanted something and found yourself willing to do and try almost anything to get it! You get that thing and then after a while the novelty wears off and you lose interest……. or become matter of fact about it.
I think most of us can probably hold our hand up to this experience, whether it be a new car, job, friend or relationship we eventually find ourselves in the reality of the comfort zone. One of life’s paradoxes is that we at one time or another want to be in the comfort zone and yet if we stay there for too long it can become humdrum and lifeless.
So does this mean we need to align ourselves with the throw away society of the 21st century and continue to accrue new things, people and experiences, only to disregard them when the glimmer dulls? I guess that is one option – one that feels a little empty and void of true and lasting happiness, to me, still it’s good to have options ;)
Or how about we learn the art of gratitude? How about we ‘get out of our comfort zone, while we remain in our comfort zone’? Almost sounds like a Dr Seuss quote “think left & think right, think low & think high. Oh, the things you can think up if only you try”
A blend of daily gratitude and daring attitude! This is the type of approach that may just keep us both happy with what we have yet at the same time stimulated to have more and do better – just with the thing we already have that’s all.
An example: The new car…..
GRATITUDE - Staying inside the comfort zone
DARING ATTITUDE – livng outside the comfort zone while staying inside of it
You will never really know until you give it a go!
