The comfort zone is where the boring people hang out. I really believe that to grow as a human being you need to experience and learn as many things as possible so that your mind doesn't curdle and make you smell like sour milk.
Growth comes from exploring and discovering new thoughts, ideas, people, places and ways of doing things. It comes from exposing and sharing yourself; plus asking questions and trying to understand the peeps you share this planet with.
Engaging in unusual activities and pushing the boundaries makes me feel like a badass and helps me stick it to my social insecurities. I write about it to inspire others to stop being big wimps and unleash the braver versions of themselves too.
Plus doing all this gives me better stories to tell at parties.
