Stepping Out of Comfort Zone

by johnandterri

Daring to begin

I remember when we committed to walking the Camino, how daunting it seemed to us. Walking 500 miles just seemed crazy. It was something that was definitely took us out of our comfort zone. We talked about if for a long time and then it lead finally to being a commitment and we just went all in to make it happen. We jumped right in with both feet even though we were not sure if we could really walk 500 miles.

“All glory comes from daring to begin”

We dared to begin. We dared ourselves to try something completely out of our comfort zone. I believe that we need to do this in our lives to grow.

I recently have taken a step out of my comfort zone again. Some of you may know that I been singing in our Church choir for a number of years. Our choir director, Susan Olmos, took a courageous step out of her comfort zone by decided to resurrect a Rock Musical she wrote and produced over 30 years ago! It was a huge undertaking with all that she is doing already. She dared to begin!

Now the thing you need to know about my musical singing ability is that I am not a natural. I was never trained in music formally and have learned by doing mostly. I am ok as long as I have strong singers next to me. I thought about it for some time, I have never been in a musical. Can I really do this? Am I crazy to even try this?

Oh, well. I decided to begin. To join the musical. It is called “In His Hands” and will be on May 13,14 and 15 at Mountlake Terrace High School.

I encourage you all to consider taking a step on something you are not sure you really can do. I can attest it can be very rewarding!
