Your Comfort Zone

I found this fantastic diagram and below quote from the site: Babes in the Backcountry.

From the day a person is conceived they begin to grow.
This growth is supposed to be a natural process throughout our lives, yet, many people reach a plateau as adults where they choose to stop growing. This is a stagnation of our character and learning of essential life skills. But we choose it because it is “comfortable”.

Now think about some of the greatest and most joyous moments in your life. Were they while you were idling in your comfort zone?

There is no magic and no life growth happening if you are only living in your “comfort zone”!


The heavens themselves run continually round, the sun riseth and sets, the moon increaseth, stars and planets keep their constant motions, the air is still tossed by the winds, the waters ebb and flow, to their conservation no doubt, to teach us that we should ever be in motion

Robert Burton (out of Bruce Chatwin’s The Songlines)




[famuh-lee, fam-leenoun, plural-lies, adjective

1. a basic social unit consisting of parents and their children, considered as a group, whether dwelling together or not: the traditional family.

Here is our ‘traditional family’!  Even though Nick and I have been together and married for several years, since having Poppy it feels like we are a real family now, a ‘social unit’.

We are parents – a MUM and a DAD!  With this brings great happiness and a sense of security, but also, a huge responsibility.  We are bringing up a new generation – where Poppy will learn so much from us (both our good and bad traits). It will be so interesting to see her develop and grow into her own person, as the years roll by.  Nick and I can’t wait to give her as many varied experiences and adventures as we can.


The best thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother
