Finding Comfort In Being Uncomfortable

Finding Comfort In Being Uncomfortable

“You don’t fear change. You fear the unknown. If you knew the future would be great, you’d welcome change to get there. Well, the future IS great. Proceed.”  -Joe Vitale

New This Year:

  • City
  • State
  • House
  • Roommates
  • Monthly Budget
  • No vehicle
  • Job
  • Living in Community
  • Feelings & Emotions

I could go on and on but the point is that any one of these things is enough to make you feel uncomfortable at first, let alone all of them. I have been in Sacramento for about four months now and it has gotten easier but it took time and a lot of work. Whenever I start a new job, I put my heart and soul into learning everyone and everything there is to know in order to be the best worker I can be. The difference this year is that I didn’t have my comforts of home to fall back on when everything was so new. I didn’t have my favorite coffee shop, my friend to get ice cream and drive around with, my mom’s comfort food, or even my own bed. I never realized how much I relied on such simple comforts of home. To make a long story short, these last few months have been challenging but equally as rewarding. It is true what they say, you grow when you step out of your comfort zone. I can’t imagine this experience without the support from MVC and especially my extraordinary community members. I have the utmost gratitude for those near and far whose support is felt day after day.
