My Comfort Zone

Each day is precious! A special gift filled with endless possibilities and hope. Yet, for some who never maximize or attain unto the day’s full potential for various ‘valid’ excuses especially one bordering on the ‘comfort zone’, this is for you.

At the onset of a new week, I pray you become bolder and more confident as you move beyond your "beautiful, neatly arranged, conducive and comfortable" comfort zones into the bigger and better things God has ordained for you.

Best wishes,

My Comfort Zone

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn’t fail.
The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail.

I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before,

But stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.

I said it didn’t matter that I wasn’t doing much.
I said I didn’t care for things like commission checks and such.

I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,
But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.

I couldn’t let my life go by just watching others win.

I held my breath; I stepped outside and let the change begin.

I took a step and with new strength I’d never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.

If you’re in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.

A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.

Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!
