Hi Friends and Followers,
I came across this poem and thought I’d share it with you all, because as purpose-driven believers and dream achievers, we often need a boost or a boot up the backside, depending upon where we are on our journey in life.
I became aware of this poem through the UCB devotional Word For Today* (January 2017), written by Bob and Debbie Gass.
The author of this work is apparently unknown.
I hope it challenges and motivates you.

I used to have a comfort zone
Where I knew I couldn’t fail;
The same four walls of busy work
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 dreams and goals and such.
I claimed to be so busy
With the things inside my 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 and 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,
Then closed and locked the door.
If you are in a comfort zone,
Afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were
At one time filled with doubt.
Dear friends, are you trapped within your comfort zone? Why not make a decision and take steps this week, this day, even this hour, to break free?
Have a blessed weekend!
Carol (aka Lady Cee)
