"If you want to expand your comfort zone, you must be willing to explore your discomfort zone."
I would rather regret doing something than regret not doing it and always wondering what I could have learned, where I could have gone and who I could have met. Everyone who I have talked to about that has agreed with me, but it is so easy to let fear stop us from getting uncomfortable. That fear prevents us from living our best life full of growth, purpose, adventure, passion and happiness. Without discomfort we cannot grow into who we are meant to be, doing what we are meant to do and where we're meant to do it.
Your discomfort zone may look different than someone else’s. Something you’re comfortable with may be frightening for someone else who hasn’t tried it yet and vice versa. I think that's incredible because it gives us the opportunity to help each other and give advice on what we grow through.
I created Your Discomfort Zone to build a community with like-minded people, spread God's word and share my adventures of moving every year and what I learn along the way. I hope to inspire you to live fearlessly and walk by faith, not by sightin whatever way it may look like for you whether it's trying something new or going somewhere new.
If this is a community that you would like to be a part of and get updates on, I invite you to subscribe and follow on social media @myrandaharper.
MY YEARLY MISSION
Explore. Expand. Encourage.
Explore new places.
Moving somewhere for a year gives me a the best opportunity to really get to know a place and find the local hole-in-the-walls. Having the time to explore the city and surrounding areas takes off the pressure of feeling rushed like I usually do when I’m visiting somewhere for about a week on vacation. One of my favorite ways to show my gratitude and feel God’s presence is by exploring His creations.
Expand my comfort zone.
My goal is to never stop learning by traveling, talking to people, and trying new hobbies, food, and skills. The worst that can happen when trying something new is that I don't enjoy it and I don't have to do it again. Best case scenario is that I'm interested enough to learn more which can create many new and exciting opportunities, knowledge, and hobbies.
God tells us to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19). We don’t have to strive for big crowds or microphones to reach a bunch of people. We can do it through our relationships by our encouraging conversations and showing what a life with Christ is like. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).
God doesn’t call us to be comfortable. He calls us to trust and have faith in Him through the discomfort. 2nd Corinthians 5:7 says “for we walk by faith, not by sight.” This is what the 5:7 and the crosswalk icon represents.
Crosswalks are a designated safe space to help us walk to the other side. Some don’t even require using our sight because they will audibly announce when it’s time to go.
Our “crosswalk” of faith provides a safe space to grow through life’s uncomfortable moments with God.
We have endless opportunities to meet new people, explore new places and try new things. The circular shape represents how your discomfort zone is endlessly all around you.
