Beyond the good life

Sometimes fear doesn’t really feel like fear. Sometimes it feels very comfortable.

Sometimes the desire to remain comfortably where you are can prevent you from being the best you can be. Sometimes you might live with unacceptable pain just so you don’t have to make any changes.

Sometimes it is useful to remind yourself that there is more to life than just being comfortable. Sometimes a change, though it may be intimidating, can do you a whole lot of good.

It’s great to appreciate and value where you are. Yet life will surely and eventually insist that you continue to move forward.

So make the choice to get a little bit beyond what you’re comfortable with. Feel true gratitude and appreciation for life’s richness, and know that there is even more beyond the horizon.

Don’t let your comfort shield you from your best possibilities. Go beyond the good life, and make it even better.

— Ralph Marston
