Like a boat

When we are in our comfort zone we feel safe, protected, but were we created for this? Just to live a “safe” life? Think about it.

We are like a boat, in the harbor is safe but that is not why the boats were built, am I right? They were created to sail the seas, they have a journey.

I believe we were created for much more than just living a “safe and protected” life. We were created to explore this world, to make good, to be kind, to take our risks and responsibilities, to enjoy this journey called life and follow our dreams, even if this means to step out of our comfort zone. Don’t be afraid!

Always remember to be grateful and enjoy your journey with ups and downs.

Have a great week!

  1. How easy it is to forget exactly about this – life is a journey, an adventure and quite often a challenge. But without would this really be “life”. Thanks for that.

    1. Very easy indeed! We are too busy to realise that our daily routine is our journey, our life…Thank you for stopping by and for your kind words! 🌸😊

  2. This is a great comparison you did with the boat and it’s so true! We are meant to sail and discover the world not just stay in our comfort zone where we live and die safe but probably unhappy :/ we need to enjoy life with its ups and downs indeed and grow through our difficulties!

    Great reminder dear Riby and beautiful picture as well 😊
