Anyone who knows me, knows I’m in love with being comfortable — almost to a fault. Yoga pants, any kind of carb, a year-round space heater, a big comfy couch and did I mention yoga pants? I guess I could be compared to a Hobbit in the Shire. Why leave my comfort zone when it’s just so….comfy? (And the alternative is just so…not).
Well, (despite all my best efforts ) I’ve been uncomfortable a lot lately; training for the California 10/20 Run and learning the ins-and-outs of cancer care, while trying still to navigate my own life’s plan. But while spending all this time away from my comfort zone, I’m starting to understand what discomfort really means.
I’ve learned that discomfort is both voluntary and involuntary. It’s mental, emotional and physical. Discomfort is sickness and health. Discomfort is fear, sadness and uncertainty. It’s shock, surprise and anticipation. Discomfort is failure and success.

One strong family full of Love. God loves you all so much. A lot to endure but you have lots of prayers and the whole community cares for you. My prayers are with you Loren. Stay strong.Miracles happen.
Love the comfy of yoga pants. I know the lessons learned when those “yoga pants” are not enough to shut out the discomforts that arrive like a loud hail storm. However, the storm clears, you can come out of cover, put those pants on and make note to self of lessons learned. You are a loving daughter and you are Lorens “yoga pants”. His comfort, his joy.
We never met but due to your gift of writing it’s like we have. Super impressed with that, and your courage as you go through these trying times with Pops. Nice to get a smile on my face every time i read your posts.
Hi kk- I’ve been following tbis blog written by the daughter of a San Diego Newscaster who is now battling brain cancer. (Her dad is) I thought this one was really good about discomfort and thought you might appreciate it. Love, Mom
So beautifully expressed, Hannah. You opened my eyes to new reactions in my own life.
She is a gifted writer, an old soul and a chip off the ole block. She reminds me of why I love the Nancarrows (and I need no reminding) so the love just GROWS…<3
