A quick thought about comfort zones

by brittanychavez

Well, don’t people spend so much time getting out of comfort zones. Pushing themselves, forcing themselves to try new things. Stepping outside your comfort zone isn’t exactly a new idea, is it? Running away from your comfort zone, from that fear of a rut, and into the arms of something completely new and uncharted.

But what, exactly, is so horribly terrible about comfort zones? I know that they can cause a rut, and a routine, and no new material, the list goes on and on. But what about an artist who pushes their limits and stays in their comfort zone? Is such a thing possible? Or the hardships of a comfort zone… the documentation of such rut and frustration.

That’s an idea that interests me.
