The Comfort Zone

6 Things That Take You Out Of Your Comfort Zone

1. Being exactly like God made you to be.

You were made with a purpose. You were made the way you are because God thought the world needed one of you. He thought the world needed your talents, your inspiration. You are unique, loved, special, adored, and forgiven. You have meaning. Your life has meaning.

2. Admitting when you're wrong.

This is a big one. It's hard to tell the truth when you've screwed up. It's hard to apologize when you know you have hurt someone. But admitting when you're wrong and apologizing, that is true strength. It shows your character. If you want to be a person of integrity and be respected by others, apologize when you screw up and come clean even when it's easier to stay dirty.

3. Asking for forgiveness.

Much like apologizing, asking for forgiveness is never easy. We ask for forgiveness because we want the record we have against a person to be cleared, no more wrong doings. By asking for forgiveness, humility replaces the pride that overrules our lives almost everyday.

4. Being accountable for someone else.

Calling someone out when they have done wrong or when they don't do the right thing is never fun. When you are accountable for someone, you correct them out of love even if they don't view it as love in that moment. You call them out to make them better, even if it shakes them and the way they see you. A person of integrity is often the most reliable accountability partner, find one (or be one) that loves and only wants the best for you.

5. Listening to your head.

Your thoughts will either kill your joy or build your self esteem. Self image? Self confidence? Our thoughts are weapons we use against ourselves. Our thoughts can be dangerous, so be careful with how much you talk yourself down and start picking yourself up. Many times our thoughts hold us back from the big things in life, so remember, it's okay to let go of your thoughts and just live.

6. Following your heart / Pursuing your dreams.

You are your greatest enemy. You know the thoughts in your head and you know the decisions your heart wants to make. The only person stopping you from pursuing your dreams and following your heart, is yourself. It's okay to listen to your head, but follow your heart sometime, it'll lead you to some amazing places.

Our comfort zones are all different, but we all have them. Step out every once in awhile, trust that the God of the universe will provide for you. Your comfort zone is waiting to be crushed with exploration of the things that lead you to adventures.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
