A new beginning means nothing if you’re still in love with your comfort zone.
Don’t live the same day 30,000 times and call it a life.
Growth begins now, at the end of your comfort zone.
Dream. Attempt. Explore.
This moment can take you in any direction you want to go. –@marcandangel from instagram
This quote is the inspiration for today’s Sunday inspiration.
It seems a bit simplistic after the year that we’ve had. And let me tell you right now I want just a little bit of a comfort zone…..
But I share more in the video about how I focused on the…. Dream. Attempt. Explore. in this moment.
In this moment means today…. and really that’s all I can focus on because If I’ve learned anything from last year all I can think about is today.
I get super passionate about this quote in the video and it shows in this floral.
I also went to my comfort zone with stenciling on gel prints, vintage wallpaper, using some chalk paste, and putting it all together with my favorite colors.
Sometimes we need a tiny bit of our comfort zone to rest and reenergize. It’s really ok…. let’s just not stay there.
