    What are you going to do that is out of your comfort zone?

    This is a significant year for me. The age will end with a zero. I have lost some of my courage.  Saturday I am going on a zip line.

    Federal and State tax returns are not normally included in my "comfort zone", in large part because I am not an EZ filer.  Let's hope you enjoy being an easy flier!

      Dreadfully sorry.  Have you looked at the EZ return these days?  There are all dreadful.  Be brave you can do it.

    I'm going to start recording videos for YouTube -- SOOO out of my comfort zone, but I have the equipment and a valuable use for the videos. Time to take the leap. And yes, I've been telling myself this for about two months. But I will, very soon, once I'm done being a chicken tongue

      I've been thinking about doing that as well...I am so uncomfortable being recorded!

      Can't stand the sound of my own voice.  That said,  videos are really fun to make.

    Same as wychic for me. I hate being recorded but I want to get over this so I can record videos for blogs and stuff. Btw, good for you! I tried zip lining last year (& I'm afraid of heights) so much fun! Would definitely do it again!  Happy birthday!

    A zip line, good for you! I'm going to join a writing group, in addition to continuing to submit fiction/poetry to various publications.

      I am still alive!  It wasn't just a zip line. It was two sky bridges, and 6 zip lines. thought I was going to die of fright between the second and 3rd line, but the rest was fun:0

    This year could be a turning point for me too. Stick with it, dunk your fears and step out of your comfort zone (take a brolly if you're worried about fallout)!
    Yesterday is gone, today is another day, tomorrow might never come. Gird your sword and don't be afraid to stand out..

      I stand out accidently all the time.  Dear friend, what is a brolly?

      A 'brolly' is an umbrella.
