Finding LIFE Outside of The Comfort Zone!

Each of us have something comfortable we love to be in--a favorite shirt, a soft and cozy housecoat, or a comfy chair--and enjoy the feeling of being comfortable. Ahhhhhhhh... The thought of my favorite comfy housecoat and chair relaxes me and takes me away from life. However, being comfortable should not be a suitable situation for us in life. Comfortable sounds are good for relaxing and finding relief; but being comfortable in life can be detrimental to our growth.“The greatest enemy to your potential is your comfort zone." ―Author Unknown...more

I dream a dream: making your dreams a reality.

Dear Dreamer,Why are you still dreaming the same dream? Is it something you desire? Is it because there is a purpose burning within you that has not been fulfilled?Why are you still talking about that same dream over and over again? Is the dream part of your soul? Do you believe this dream is about your purpose in life?Why are you telling everyone about this dream and you have not taken a step to fulfill it? Are you more about talking about the dream instead of doing something about it? Is it easier to talk about your dream than working to fulfill it?...more
