Stepping out of your comfort zone

October 31st – Hallowe'en.  As I walked around today I noticed many people wearing unusual attire.  Some in full costume and others wearing small items, a simple nod to the day.  Like they are saying " I know it's October 31st, and I want to celebrate, and at the same time, I don't want to stand out too much."   

I'm wondering what is motivating those who are fully decked out.  Are they using this opportunity to really showcase who they feel they are? Are they using it to step out of their comfort zone? To push their own boundaries in a safe and acceptable environment? 

What makes up your own comfort zone? 

What would it feel like to challenge these boundaries?  What's on the other side?
