How snug are you wrapped up in your comfort zone, your safe space?
I know that deep down all you really want to do is fly … soar beyond the clouds … touch the blue skies …. and feel the warm glow of the sun all around you. That’s your intention. You want be step up and be amazing. You know you are …
So you surround yourself with wings.
- Embrace them.
- Cuddle in them.
- Settle in them.
Find a cozy spot that seems to fit just right…. it’s better then being out there in the cold. Isn’t it?
… And so you decide the sky will happen another time. Tomorrow. Becuase you’re not in the mood to get yourself in a flutter. It’s just not worth it. Besides you’re comfortable.
The rest of the world can wait … for a better day ….
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, sounds familiar ???
How’s that serving you …. and I mean the ultimate you ?
I find it fascinating that people freak out about doing something – not just because of the the sweat – but because of the unknown factor of what might happen.
Either way you have no idea what’s going to happen. But the chances of success increase when you actually do the right thing.
We tuck ourselves up in the the comfort of blankets and bury ourselves in a bubble of fear – because the big, dark, illusive unknown is just to much to deal with.
Has the irony of that sunk in yet? Seriously, what makes living in a bubble any safer?
Now, before the chorus breaks out … I want you to take a deep breathe and actually here the words coming out of your mouth.
Are you settling for safety or just the idea of what’s safe?
See, the truth is we don’t really know where any path will lead us. We might not even be around next week to figure it out. The only assumption we can make is that : if we hang around in the same void (no matter how snazy the decor), chances are – we’ll pretty much stay here. So 20 years down the line we’ll be dealing with the same stuff we did today. The only difference is we’ll have more wrinkles and we’ll be living a non-purposeful-life. Life as we know it will be a void. Kinda like a Black Hole.
There’s only one place where you can truly feel safe – and that’s where you have everything you want. Trust me, there’s nothing plush about it!
I recall working at this company, being to scared to leave and own my power, because I told myself that felt safe. But the truth is, how safe was hitting zero on your bank account before month end, working overtime, and not receiving my worth? I was freaking out. Eating myself up from the inside out. I was living in a black hole and I didn’t even know it.
What does it really mean to be safe?
Can you take your head out of the sand and say for sure that you feel safe where you are right now?
There’s greatness inside of you (of all of us) banging to come out. It doesn’t want to shut up for another year. It’s getting tired of playing it safe or waiting on some sort of golden ticket. Can you really keep denying yourself any longer?
