Linda Goodnight here. I’m not a beach bunny. I don’t like heat or sun or big bodies of water. Or sticky sand against my skin. But for the past two summers I’ve stepped out my comfort zone to vacation in the Florida sun with my adult children and loved every minute. Busy with their own lives throughout this year, this was our chance to reconnect, laugh and talk together, experience new things. I even learned to snorkel, a real accomplishment since I’m claustrophobic about having water over my head. From this I took a valuable life lesson. It’s not about the where or the what. It’s about the who. Being with those you care about makes any place enjoyable.
If you read my books, you know I write about family, and I love to push my characters out of their comfort zones. My current release, THE MEMORY HOUSE is also about families. Broken ones, damaged ones, old and new ones. And, of course, the lead characters are pushed out of their comfortable hiding places to places of decision.
What about you? When was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone? Was it a good or bad experience? What one thing would you LIKE to do that's outside your comfort zone?
