Day Three: Update on Getting Uncomfortable in 2014
The cool thing about comfort zones is that they are unique to each person. One thing could be completely, totally out of a person’s comfort zone and it could be something that another person does on a daily basis…and vice versa. I had some things that I didn’t do in 2013 that I wanted to do this year. I’m happy to say that I have done some of those things.
Exploring a new city
I live in New Zealand and it is a great place to live. I might be a little biased but hey, that’s all because of country pride…right? Despite my saying that I live in a great place I don’t travel around a whole lot. Part of that is because I didn’t have a reason to travel and the second was because I have absolutely no internal compass. I can get lost at the drop of a hat. This year I wanted to travel the country more…alone and I have. I’ve made several trips into Auckland, to Rotorua and I’ve taken to parking my car and just walking around random parts of Hamilton. There is nothing like exploring a city with no plans.
I joined the gym last year in an attempt to ‘get in shape’. Ha. What a joke that was. It looks like this year is going in the same manner too. No bueno. I had made it a goal of mine to go to gym classes alone so I could focus and give it a proper go. Well, I did and I liked them. It really was a good workout for an hour. I enjoyed myself. It turns out that exercising in a group really is an effective way to get fit.
I’m not a stranger to the online dating scene. I dated someone I met online. It didn’t last very long because he got a littttttle clingy but it was a good experience. After the app Tinder came out, I decided to give this ‘online’ thing another shot. I’ve “met” four lads and I can say that three of the four were really solid, lovely people. For a long time I was in a place that I wasn’t certain about what I wanted in a relationship or if I was even ready to be a part of one.
