Courage vs Comfort #writebravely

Comfort vs Courage

Comfort is not as it seems,
You live in your dreams,
Sitting and making schemes,
Smiling at the consequences of extremes.

It is easier to sway,
When the world is before you in a tray,
Not an inch you will move away,
And in the end you will not be gay.

Courage is a tough process,
But it will take away your distress,
Lets you develop great finesse,
Right after you are ready to confess.

It is a quality difficult to manifest,
It let's you do your best,
You will definitely feel blessed,
For moving out of your nest.

We have all been there. Comfort was our first choice for everything. I have been there. I even stick to comfort foods. Our choices when we stick to comfort can be very limited and even deadly sometimes. The decisions taken in comfort might be hasty. One needs courage to face their own decisions. That's when we move from comfort to courage. We also understand we can't have both which is good when it comes to this.

  1. I agree with you, Jayanthy.
    Nothing good every comes from comfort zones. Courage is what takes us ahead!

  2. Courage leads to adventures and comfort leads to calories! So courage it is for me. :)

  3. Couldn't agree anymore Jayanthy! Your few beautiful lines are so true. Nothing is as dreamy & perfect as we picture from comfort. But courage is the metal that makes us grow.

  4. I've found that the times I've been most comfortable, I've hardly learnt anything. So pushing ourselves beyond our comfort zones are so important if we want to grow.

  5. A decade ago, I would have anyday chosen comfort. Today, there is a growing tendency to question whatever I feel is wrong... so courage it is, even if it is the minority voice.

  6. Pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone is not easy but it does us a world of good. So yes, we must have the courage to get comfortable with being uncomfortable, for that will truly help us to learn and grow.

  7. We have to push ourselves in this competitive world and to raise the bar each time we perform something in our lives.

  8. Comfort zones are dangerous zones. Loved your rhyming.

  9. "You will definitely feel blessed,
    For moving out of your nest." tough thing to do but this words are comforting :)
    Well jotted. Applause!

  10. Comfort is good, but it is courage that can make us achieve what we dream of. Stepping out of comfort zones is tough but that's the only way ahead.

  11. Comfort is like letting the money lie idle in the bank account and courage is like investing in shares ! No great results are ever obtained in safe heavens.
    Good read!

  12. True! Courage is conquering fear, it need not be heroic for all.

  13. Growth lies beyond the comfort zone. Lovely poem.

  14. Courage is a quality difficult to manifest. These are such strong lines that only few of us understand and apply in our life.

  15. Ahh! Your poetry says it all about comfort and courage pros and cons, well rhymed too.

Letter to My Blog #MyFriendAlexa

Hello My Dear Blog,

I will start with a Thank You! I owe you one and I haven't said that in years to you! I am sorry about that! Thanks to #Blogchatter for reminding me to do so. You are such a wonderful listener and you have borne me for almost a decade now. I started out writing only as a means to earn some money, but you have helped me emerge as a blogger, writer and a better reader. You have reflected my mind in every single occasion. Right from expressing my confusions as a person to an evolving parent, you have helped me express myself much better than I do in in conversations.

I have opened up very little with people in person except for few close friends. It's you who are helping me break my barriers one at a time and you are also helping me become a better person. I used to just rant around when I started you, but you are making me focus on my writing, on myself and everything around me. You have been an amazing platform to present my writing to the entire world, som…

You are You and I am Me! #MyFriendAlexa

Recent incidents helped me reflect a lot about myself and my life in general. Life has a way of bringing excitements and adventures followed by disappointments and regrets. Some adventures make us restless whereas some disappointments show us an open door. At times, I don't know which is a blessing - an adventure or a disappointment. I am still not the matured one to see the light at the end of the tunnel in everything that happens. Though I believe that everything happens for a reason, sometimes I need to sit down and reflect to find the reason.
Reflections happen everywhere. Not just when I sit still and meditate, though I do it very less. Not even the times when I sit down and decide to do nothing. It mostly happens when I sit to take a breath, but someone needs my help right away that moment. It is mostly when I call it a day, but someone calls me just to see if I slept so that they could have a "short" conversation. These are the times I wonder if I have a boundary…

Stereotyped! #MyfriendAlexa

I never really knew, We had to cut through, To know where we stand, When it doesn't even look very grand, As a girl child, I am always expected to reconcile.
Maybe I lived in a dream, Without knowing everything was a scheme, When I became a graduate, I never knew I was a marriage bait, When I started working, I never knew it was just to save for my wedding!
I had dreams aplenty, Until my twenties, I rebelled for a long time, I was treated like I committed a crime, All that I need, Is to dream again and sow the seeds.
I must admit, That I was never unfit, But made to feel that way, So I will never have a say, I am here to have a go at it, And preach to others not to fall into that pit.
We the women, Are here to stay, Let our barriers break away, It is our time anyway, Let us teach our little girls to dream, And believe they are always supreme.
Come what may, We must stay With our heads held high And not one bit shy, For who we are, And take pride in coming so far.
We have every right, To question with deep sight, A sh…
