Leave Your Comfort Zone!

 

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.

 

—–oooooo000oooooo—–

 

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!

 

Best wishes,

Carol (aka Lady Cee)

    Comfort zones seem safe, just like a jail; but is no freedom whatsoever. Let all achievers breakthrough as the author has advised.
