Comfort Zones

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged, I know. I’ve got a little bit of writer’s block. So, we’ll just Google “inspirational quotes” and go from there. We’ll see where this takes us….

A few posts ago, I talked about the reaction I got from my hairdresser. I was hurt. I felt terrible about myself. Out of control. But since then, I’ve had maybe ten people tell me how great it is that I am reclaiming my life and doing this. Those are the people I am going to listen to.

The above quote caught my eye because our comfort zone is our safety net. Anywhere outside of this circle is met with turmoil and anxiety. But if we stay within our comfort zones, then are we really living? Aren’t we meant to enjoy life? Aren’t we meant to be happy?

Our comfort zone can be applied to any aspect of our lives. But, let’s think of it in terms of eating habits. If I choose to stay within my comfort zone of choosing bad things to put into my body, then I don’t have to worry about everything that comes with weight loss. But if I get healthy, then what? People will start noticing. The thought that someone, anyone, could be scrutinizing my body is terrifying. Being fat for so long has taught me how to be overlooked instead of looked at. If I will start getting that attention, how will I really feel? Flattered? Maybe. Uncomfortable? Absolutely!

But, guess what? Their opinions DO NOT MATTER!! Hear that? They can comment all they like, but at the end of the day, what matters most is being able to look at myself in the mirror and be proud of my body. Be proud of every single flaw and scar that I have acquired in my life.

Update:
I had my scope so the doctors could see the esophageal web up close and to take biopsies. Everything came back normal!!

My name is Jessica Wolfe. I am the wife of an incredible man and father. He and I have been together longer than we have been apart. We have two sons, one is 18 and a freshman at Indiana State University majoring in Music Education. Our 13 year old son is in the 7th grade and is being home schooled. My vertical sleeve gastrectomy surgery was on June 16, 2016. My total gastrectomy was March 3, 2017. I’ve recently found out I have a fairly large benign tumor in my brain. I also have something going on in my lower spine between my L5 and S1. It seems as though surgery is imminent. Through this blog, I share my life with you and am brutally honest with myself so that when I do look back, I can see what it was that made me make the decisions I did. I also welcome opinions and questions as it challenges my thoughts and helps me grow from where I am. If you want to check me out anywhere else, please do!

  1. I really like the quote you found. It really makes one thing about how they want to live life and how much are we willing to step out the comfort zone in order to really start living. I will remember this quote for awhile so thank you 🙂 Also congrats on the normal scope result!
