Comfort Zones

“To do anything truly worth doing, I must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in with gust and scramble through as well as I can.” I got this quote [and the idea of this topic]from the blog of my Tita. 

This is really true. We cannot really know what will happen in life if we will not try and take risks. We cannot avoid risks and we must face them or else [in my opinion] we cannot live life to the fullest. As my teacher in Philosophy told us "You must go out of your comfort zones" . We must go out of our comfort zones in order to know and live life well. I think that being passive and not taking risks is a very cowardly act. Staying inside our comfort zones only shows that we are afraid of life and that we are afraid of making mistakes. But making mistakes will just make us a better person and we cannot really avoid it[I think]. I am not saying though that we must 'always' make mistakes. What I am saying is that we must not be afraid of them. 

We must go out and face life head on.
