The quote above by Susan Falls-Hilles reminds me of how most of us are grappled by fear of the uncertain and sometimes, really prefer being in the phase of “status quo” that becomes our comfort zone.
At the end of the day, we have only one life to live; and you risk going through it missing your purpose and not realizing your dreams.
While the uncertainty may seem frightening, you will never know what’s on the other side of the door, unless you muster up the courage to open it.
Some people may find this analogy to be flawed because they strongly believe in the statement: “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it”. For others, however, it’s rather the continued setbacks and failures in their everyday life that have created a sentiment of fear or desperation disguised in the feeling of comfortability.
Reality is, at one point in our life, we all have experiment setbacks and failures. Eventually we get tired, drained, unmotivated or uninspired to keep trying or keep going. – Life has happened so much that we believe that because we haven’t been successful in the past, our chances of being successful at a new venture is nearly impossible.
We believe that there’s no reason to do more, to become more or be better. We continually see a barrier that separates us from our dreams, and we get so familiar with it that it becomes our reality.
Unfortunately, as a result, we become our own barrier… our worse enemy. We are too afraid of the uncertainty and we become too comfortable in our mediocrity.
So, If you’re reading this today, I hope you already know that there’s no real barrier that separates us from our dreams and that it’s okay to dream big and expect more. We are created in the image of greatness; and it is in our right to want to be great. There’s nothing wrong with that.
Thank you for reading and cheers to fabulous week!

Dream BIG!!! I Love this yellow top on you.
Thank you sister Neti! Yes, to dreaming BIG 🙂
I knew this post is for me when I saw the title. Just today I ended a 11 years relationship that was drowning me but never had the courage to walk away. I love the post and the bright yellow outfit that compliments it very well. The future is only bright..
Yes darling the future is only bright! I’m happy for you and so proud of you! I know that might not be easy, but I’m proud of you for releasing what you couldn’t hold anymore.
Whenever I start feeling comfortable, something would come up. I believe it’s God’s way of teaching me to never stop learning, never stop dreaming. 🙂
