LIFE’S FILLED WITH POSSIBILITIES
Life’s filled with possibilities
that challenge us each day
To take a chance,
try something new,
see things a different way.
And it’s through
these special moments
that we learn
to change and grow,
the precious gift
of who we are
and what we know.
For it’s not until we try
that we find out
what we can do,
So don’t wait
to discover something new!
(good book: Move Ahead with Possibility Thinking, by Robert H. Schuller)
To laugh is to risk appearing the fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out for another is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas, your dreams, before a crowd is
to risk their loss.
To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk despair.
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard
in life is to risk nothing.
They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they
cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love, live.
Chained by their attitudes, they are a slave, they
have forfeited their freedom.
Only a person who risks is free.

MY COMFORT ZONE
I used to have a Comfort Zone
Where I knew I couldn’t fail.
The same four walls of busy work
Were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things
I’d never done before,
But I stayed inside my Comfort Zone
And paced the same old floor.
I claimed to be so busy
With the things inside my zone,
But deep inside I longed for
Something special of my own.
I couldn’t let my life go by,
Just watching others win.
I held my breath and stepped outside
And let the change begin.
I took a step and with new strength
I’d never felt before,
I kissed my Comfort Zone ‘goodbye’
And closed and locked the door.
If you are in a Comfort Zone,
Afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were
At one time filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise,
Can make your dreams come true.
Greet your future with a smile,
Success is there for you!
