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.

 What do you think about comfort and courage? Write to me in my comments 😊

  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!
    -Anagha from Team MocktailMommies

  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.

Nostalgic #writebravely

Last October, I skipped a period. However, I thought I must wait for a couple more weeks before deciding or letting everyone know. By Diwali, it was evident and I was asked by my family to stay super cautious for the first three months of my pregnancy.
This year, my once delicate darling is not delicate anymore. She is growing up quickly. She is into her 5th month already. I just took this time to look back to the day when I started from the hospital on Day 3.
Day 3:

I was all set to move from the hospital to my mother's home that evening with my delicate darling wrapped in pink. Though I had read so much about parenting and babies, everything in front of me was very new. I just let go of it all, completely adhering only to my little one's schedules that she set for herself.
Though I had a normal delivery, I was so tired and couldn't move around much. I felt as if my pelvic girdle was hanging on both ends. I even thought if Cesarean would have been a better option.
Day 9:

This Monster in Me #WriteBravely

This monster in me
This monster in me, Does not let me be, She always disagrees, So I never let her free.
I struggle to tame her, That's what stirs her, Her horns grow stronger, As if they were always there.
I let my anger grow, My thoughts go with the flow, I yell, I pout, I get it all out.
The cry makes me fret, Then I am upset, I try to forget, There is so much regret.
This monster in me, Wouldn't let me be, I want to change, Yet, Change sounds very strange.

#WednesdayVerses: My Blessing In Disguise

Though times have changed, The memories we created remain unchanged, We have learnt to be together, Even during the bad weather. 
As we sipped our cup of tea, Our memories started floating free, Laughter slowly filled the hall, As we started sharing it all.
We learned to be with each other, We always have one another, To share our little secrets, As well as our life's regrets.
Just upon your arrival, I thought you were my rival, You changed me with your love, For which I am thankful to the lord above.
We fought so much We never thought we'd even stay in touch, The day I was transferred to another state, I learnt you are my soul mate.
My First Little Girl, My Inspiration, My First Daughter, My Sweet Pride, My Second mother at times, My Best Friend Forever.
Our lives are so different, Yet we have so much to talk, A day isn't enough, To get all our stuff out.
We are best friends now, We laugh at our days before, In each other we will always confide, For we have nothing at al…
