Thursday, August 24, 2017 Comfort Food  No comments

The comfort zone is where you’re feeling safe. No waves. No coarse seas. See no evil, hear no malicious, and speak no noxious. I’m not going to bother you and I do not want you to trouble me. That’s the comfort zone. Or as some call it living in the box. Where do you live? Do you live in the box I mean do you live your life in the comfort zone?
I do not mean comfort like you are financially cushty. This is where we all need to be. I mean comfort in the proven fact that you will never stray to far out of the comfort of your box. Like a puppy or a new born chick. They may never stray to far away from their mother. Why would they? They have warmth, food, and comfort. Kinda like why so many children today, who don’t move away from home and make a life for themselves. They’re comfortable there...
