Getting to a place of comfort can be uncomfortable.
July 17th - finding comfort in uncomfortable times
Everybody has a Comfort Zone. There is a certain temperature at which we feel the most comfortable. There is a way of life in which we feel at ease. There is a crowd of people with whom we feel most comfortable. When we are around the wrong crowd; in the wrong situation; in the wrong place; and doing the wrong things, we can feel very uncomfortable and out of place
When I’m uncomfortable I’ve found that by slipping into a favorite garment, sipping a perfectly chilled beverage on a hot day, or visiting with a love one is often where I find comfort. There is a lot of comfort to be found in the ordinary things in life.
There are also a lot of uncertainties in our life and finding comfort in these uncertain times isn’t quite so easy. There are things happening all around us that are just too close for comfort. It'’s then that there is no comfort in being comfortable. Comfort comes from the strength earned from growing through discomfort. Comfort comes by gaining strength from adversity. Comfort is self confidence. Comfort comes from knowing that you have the WILL to do whatever it takes.
Tough times never last, but tough people do.
