Shhhh….you hear that?
That’s right. It’s the sound of comfortability.
The sound that most of us fight for.
The sound that most of us spend countless amounts of dollars to get an education on so that it will land us a job so we can be (somewhat) comfortable.
We live in a society where video games have replaced physical activities. Family meals have been replaced by fast food drive-thrus because it’s comfortable to stay in the car to get something that someone else cooked for you. Is comfortability a bad thing? No…not really. Neither is Disney World.
See…Disney World is wonderful, because you plan, save money, find easier ways to get there, plan some more, then feel excited when you get there. Then…you leave, anticipating a return. You learn from this experience and you’re like “next time we come back, we’re gonna have more fun!”
I see comfortability in the same way I see Disney World. You plan to be comfortable. You work extra hours, or look for higher paying jobs to feel comfortable. You try to find shortcuts, (i.e. pyramid schemes, lottery tickets, etc.) for comfortability. Then one day…boom. “Mama, I made it! Praise the Lord! I’m in a good season! I got that new job! I got that new house! I’m finally…comfortable.”
Now, you’re at the “place” of comfortability. You love the “place” of comfortability so much that you want to live there, just like Disney World. Guess what? Living in a place where you’re only suppose to be a visitor can cost you a lot. If success is a highway, then comfortability is just a rest area. Have your moments of comfort, but keep it moving. Keep searching for “better.”
Better is your home.
Comfortability is your Disney World.
Just my thoughts…
