As I try to catch up on work professionally….and organize a plan personally…this message is like a gentle reminder for me. “Safe” isn’t a bad word, but some have made it synonymous with “failure”, “complacency”, and “laziness”. That’s not always true. Safe is familiarity, comfort, and security. Safe is a guarantee. I relied on “safe” heavy.
Then “safe” started to not be enough for me. I wanted something greater than “safe”. I wanted “risks” and “uncertainty”. I wanted (and am constantly on a journey of) what’s on the other side of “safe”. I played it safe my whole life and still lost it all. So why not go on and stray away from my safety zone? Let’s see what “great” has to offer.
