:: Finding your comfort zone...and staying in it? ::
Would you keep a worn out old couch, weathered by time but so comfortable and familiar or have a sleek new designer sofa that you know will get stolen if your house was broken in?
Another thing that comes to mind is man's need for change. Nature is designed in such a way that change is necessary but not necessarily easily adaptable. How many of us have found ourselves stuck in the same routine and situation time and time again that it fails to have any meaning to us anymore? That the people who have been beside us for years have begun to pale in comparison to those we have just met? How can it be that we can abandon those who have stuck with us through thick and thin for someone so temporary yet seem so exciting in the short time that we have known them? And despite that, we find it so hard to accept the change that at any slight hint of trouble or rejection, we leave...only to return to our trusty couch. Will we settle for second best with all the inadequacies that have failed to satisfy us over the years or take a chance to find one that can fulfill said inadequacies? Personally, it is a hard decision to make to leave a situation so familiar, predictable, safe and secure only to jump into something so uncertain and something that leaves us so open and vulnerable. How many of us are content to be cosily nestled in our comfort zone and how many of us are ready to take up a challenge?
