Write down the first words that comes to mind when we say . . . home. . . soil. . . rain. Use those words in the title of your post.
“There is Comfort in Growth”
We normally feel safe and comfortable in our home. It’s the place we can come to whenever we are troubled. There’s no place like home, they said. The feeling of being able to lay on your own bed does not compare to the heartiest breakfast from your favorite Bed and Breakfast. Not only because your sheets look familiar, but because they’re also familiar to your skin. Apparently, they made a very good connection. But, home doesn’t always mean a house with your family in it. Or your apartment with your roommate. Home is where you’re comfortable and safe and loved. It could be someone’s embrace, or your career. Or maybe simply wherever your heart is.
It is very satisfying to get that cozy feeling of being at home, which is why it’s never wrong to try something different besides your usual comfortable routine. Especially when it’s for your own growth. We are not given a lifetime to settle for what’s only safe. It should also be a place that is comforting at the same time. It should be able to make you feel good about yourself. Change is always coming, we are forced to cope. There is a beginning and ending to all things new; but that doesn’t mean we have to treat change as if it’s some kind of a disease that we would eventually get rid of with the right amount of medicine called resistance.
Rain comes in our lives. Storms even. We are poured with too many feelings and trials we’re often not ready to face. But they say, you can stay home, enjoy your coffee and stare out the window all day long. Or you can also step outside, and feel the water fall down your skin. Eventually, you’ll learn to enjoy the cold. When it gets colder that it gets beyond your liking anymore, you can go back home. Maybe have some coffee, too. I think you’ll savor the smell of it and like the hot mug against your hands better after you’ve enjoyed the cold. What I’m trying to say is that, a little change may not be harmful. In fact, sometimes change can bring comfort to our lives.
Choose to see the greatness in everything. Believe in the good change can bring.
