Confession: I’m afraid of becoming comfortable.

My life is good at this point. I’m happy and I’m healthy. For many, this is enough. Yes, I’m grateful for what I am blessed with but I’m always looking to make things better. Moments of struggle have taught me to always have a backup just in case. I don’t like to get comfortable. I prefer to keep at least three toes outside of the comfort zone.

Fast forward to this morning.

I ran across the below video on Twitter. In the video, Ice -T talks about going beyond your comfort  zone by saying “fuck it”. With all things, taking risks can be both good and bad. The outcome is not known until you say “fuck it” and try. I have the utmost respect for Ice-T because he has lived what he speaks about.

I can’t afford to play this life I’ve been given safe. Can you?
