Comfort Zone

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”- Neale Donald Walsch

It’s quite easy, is it not
To go with the flow, without a thought
Live your life in a fashion predictable
Following a routine is practical
Saves time in a world fast-paced
Helps you stay ahead in the race
You are most productive in your comfort zone
Where you can handle your life alone

Being too comfortable is a thing dangerous
Life tends to throw curve balls at all of us
There will be times when you are taken by utter surprise
Forced to do things on a limb, and improvise
We are all resourceful, there’s usually a way
To get through the unexpected, any place, any day

I must confess I like my days to proceed
In a smooth fashion, it gives me the control that I need
To keep multitasking, maximizing efficiency
Keeps me confident, maintains my self-sufficiency
But every now and then, when I get too comfortable
I crave for some action, a little something to enable
My fight or flight skills to rise from dormancy
And challenge my sense of passive complacency
Then I try to reach outside my zone of comfort
My adaptability to something new I try to assert
(No, I do not bungee-jump or sky dive,
I do not need such thrills to make me feel alive)
I break my routine and try to explore
A new form of creative expression, not tried before..
I don’t push my boundaries but do step out
Of my comfort zone into the realm of self-doubt
And when I do that, my zone of comfort expands
I acquire an extra skill for my hands

If you think life is smooth, but a bit too smooth
A new target might be worthwhile to shoot
Getting out of your comfort zone should help you, I say
Get something more out of an ordinary day…
