Pushing the boundaries of comfort zones

The beauty of long layovers and being stuck in an airport you get the time to think and ponder on life, where you have been and how far you’ve come.  Watching my fellow travelers pass me by I got to thinking about Comfort Zones… So often we live as we are taught, we follow what we are told about how we look, how to dress, … Continue reading Pushing the boundaries of comfort zones
