“Be like the bird that, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing that she hath wings.” ~ Victor Hugo
This got me thinking about how the life of a bird is like our life.
The nest is our safety zone. A place of comfort. This could be our home, a familiar face, a routine we follow, or whatever else it is that makes us feel safe. Our comfort zone. But sometimes we have to leave the nest. Sometimes we have to head out into areas we are not familiar with, doing things we haven’t done before. Sometimes we have to get out of our comfort zone. Especially if we want to grow and really live our life.
And that’s when we need to spread our wings, like a majestic bird high in the sky, spread our wings and soar! Maybe we’ll crash the first few times, but the more we keep at it, the sooner we WILL be soaring. Soaring to new heights in our life.
What nest are you in right now? What’s your comfort zone? Is it time to step out of it, and fly to new heights?
Think about it. Maybe your good where you’re at right now. That’s ok. Sometimes your comfort zone is the right place to be. But maybe, your comfort zone has become a little too comfortable.
Spread your wings and fly!
