One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time. – Andre Gide
It’s that comfort zone again, that keeps drawing us down and forces us to cruise along blissfully neglecting our own growth. Growth is very important. Why? Because without the sense of achievement that comes from meaningful growth we feel empty, unfulfilled and depressed about life.
We must have meaningful goals to achieve, and constantly so. That doesn’t mean we have to be driven like rats. We can stay mindful, calm and know that we pursue worthwhile goals without neglecting what’s important in the Now. And growth ought to be balanced across the physical, mental (emotional) and spiritual dimensions.
I AM a free child of God. I AM fearless. I can take on new goals and projects without apprehension. I understand that at one level all life is play and that I AM a child in a playground. I explore and I conquer. And I do it with all kinds of invisible help from the Universe. I AM blessed, just like everyone else!
