Ellen Belle // Above the Inversion

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

This beauty contacted me through instagram a while back, and after months of planning I finally sucked up the awkward " I know you on social media, but not in real life." situation. We met for coffee, followed by a photo adventure. 1 hour after being with Ellen, I was sad that so many months went by of me not knowing her. We were kindred spirits. I've realized in the past few months in my life how many times I've missed out on opportunities because of the fear of being uncomfortable. I had a friend say to me, if you are living in the comfortable you will never move forward. You will continue to live in a stagnant, mediocre life. If you want that, there's nothing wrong with that. But I sure don't. My friend continued to say, if you aren't doing something uncomfortable or something that makes you nervous everyday, then what are you doing? What do we really have to lose? Is it because of what others think? Are you afraid of failure? Why do you think Jesus gave us a Comforter? He knew His ways would make us uncomfortable first.

It made me think. It challenged me. So from now on, I will live in the uncomfortable. Not being content with the possible, but living for the impossible. 

Great things never came from comfort zones.
