A Warrior's Fight // "Out of My Comfort Zone"

What does it even mean to fight for something? When I think about “fighting” for something, I think about it in the context of putting in consistent effort day in and day out, whether it’s physical or emotional effort. I haven’t always been a fighter, it took a lot of time and practice for me to learn what my priorities were and how to put them first. At one of the lowest points in my life, struggling with my mental health after a rough breakup, I knew I was either going to sink or swim. I’ll admit, I was on the fast track to sinking but I knew I was better than that and that I was made for more. I knew I had to reprogram my brain into a completely different way of thinking if I wanted to pull myself out of the hole I was in. I was told that I had to learn to love myself before I could love anyone else, which was something I was completely unfamiliar with. But it made a lot of sense, so I started to learn. I had to pick up books, which is something I hadn’t done since high school. I was completely out of my comfort zone, which I’ve learned is the only way to grow. It’s been a long road, and one that is far from over. I still have a lot of room to grow but, through adversity, I’ve learned to face that challenge head on instead of letting it run me into the ground.

So personally, when I think of what I fight for these days, a couple key areas of my life come to mind. I fight for my profession, my marriage, my relationships with other people, and myself everyday. Trust me, it can be DRAINING, but it wouldn’t be called a fight if it wasn’t challenging, would it? But I can promise one thing, it all is completely worth it.

P.S. Read the book “Daring Greatly” by Brene Brown or watch some of her Ted Talks, it’ll change your life.
