Taking A Dip Into The Unknown

Updated on February 15, 2013

Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Here goes another day of adventure

When my mind doesn't sleep

I want to press on and learn more

Keeping my head above the water

On occasion my head goes under and I am quickly reminded not to do that again

I see my goals in a distance

They shine like a search light

Lighting up everything everywhere

I see how others have made different choices that have failed

I do not want to become comfortable with settling for less

I open my mind up to new possibilities

My outside world is only a safety net that I must remove

So that I can experience life so new

Without boundaries and shame

I hear the sound of the oceans roar

That becons only those who seek

I lift up my hands to the heavens

As vast as any possibility

This is my time

This is my opportunity to make my life different than most

One that holds onto an imaginary light

That carries me through the tough times

Into a clearing where nature has welcomed me

Once again rejuvinated and filled with never ending spirit

Back to the simple life where we have all started

As babies years ago

Now I have learned time is not controlled by any laws

It can be useful and unforgiving

Unless we respect its transparent forms

In a world that we all squirm like worms

      Wonderful thoughts. Never settle for less when you can have so much more. Be all that you can be.

      Very good. Thank you. Dreams... They were my business. And I had the money of an oil company to make them happen. But before the money was the idea.

      DREAM ON..very well written and I am glad that you have come to the point in your life where prioritizing is important.This is what life is about..tossing out the garbage that we have accumulated through the years, as that's how we have been programed by society..By simplifying our lives, we can now move forward so much easier..Congrat's..

      now have a great week-end my friend...

      Katheryn Stratford To go beyond what things I have been taught.To leave my family and friends comforting thoughts.To take risk and up my game a notch.To be brave and to push ahead in a world filled with uncertainty.I have to think carefully.I plan for the future and know with all plans failures are hidden.Thanx for sharing encouraging words and I looking forward to my new expanded world.Have a beautiful day.

      I like the line "I do not want to become comfortable with settling for less".

      In order to get anywhere, it is necessary to get out of our comfort zone. In time, what was once uncomfortable will be inviting, and our world will be expanded. We will be closer to our goal.

      Thanks for sharing another wonderful poem.
