Breaking Out Of Your Comfort Zone Is The Key To Happiness

If you want to change your life and live happier and better, you need to step out of your comfort zone.

Breaking Out Of Your Comfort Zone Is The Key To Happiness

Today, we stay in our comfort zone because we are scared to step out. Most of us fear the unknown. We don’t like the idea of what could possibly happen and not knowing for sure. I know from personal experience that I love to plan out my day and know exactly what is going to happen that day.

News flash, that’s not how life works.

You never know what is going to happen. It is just something that is inevitable. You might end up switching your major, you might take that job offer, you might not be with your significant other for the rest of your life.

A lot of people try their best to change their life. They want a better life than the one they had growing up. We strive to be the best, which isn’t a bad thing, it’s a good thing. Most people just don’t know that it doesn’t happen overnight. It takes work and change. Which is where comfort comes in.

We are so used to how we live that changing is scary, or maybe we just don’t like the idea of changing ourselves or all our habits.

I am going to let you in on a little secret: if you want to change your life and live happier and better, you need to step out of your comfort zone. You need to take a chance on the unknown.

I wanted to change my life for the better. Become more successful, have more positive friends, and do something out of the ordinary. After months of trying, I finally got offered the best offer. It brought me responsibility, the most amazing friends, and it made me change my habits.

I couldn’t be happier with how I am living now, and it is all because I accepted the challenge of stepping out of my comfort zone.

If you can do that, there is nothing that you should ever fear nor is there nothing you can’t do. It just takes that one moment where you dare yourself to do something you aren’t necessarily comfortable with. If you can do that, then you will be successful in changing your whole life.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
