The Comfort Zone
I used to have a comfort zone
where I knew I couldn’t fail.
The same four walls and 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 diamonds, furs and such.
I claimed to be so busy
with 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
to let the change begin!
I took a step and with new strength
I’d never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone ‘Good-Bye’,
I 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.
A step or two and words of praise
can make your dreams come true.
Greet your future with a smile,
success is there for YOU!
