Tomorrow evening, I'm stepping outside of my comfort zone. Or maybe I'm embracing my NEW comfort zone. I think that it is a little bit of both.
My comfort zone is to be in areas where I am familiar with the setting, or at least with people that I know. Recent experiences have shown me that if I am nervous, my MS symptoms are more likely to appear. It must have something to do with physiology. For example, if I am in a room of strangers, or with people whom I don't usually interact with, I am more likely to be nervous.
Yeah, yeah...I can hear you..."I get like that".
When I get nervous, I get the wobbles. I stop turning my head, and become rigid, quiet. I retreat for self-preservation. Nervousness and uncertainty are not my friend.
So what is my new comfort zone? When I read what I just typed, I feel as if my new comfort zone is more of an anomaly. I am doing something that I wouldn't usually do, MS, or not.
I'm participating in a 3 hour knitting class.
I'm going to learn how to cast on, cast off...and something else that I can't remember at this time.
I consider this to be one of the pluses of having frayed wires, and my life experience of the past 3 years...a greater ability to see life for what it is, and not be over analytical, skeptical, or reserved...just do it.
