Life is a struggle. In general. We are in state of constant fight, never ending battle. From cellular to global level.
In human body, every second millions cell being destructed and die to give room to a newborn ones. Our liver, kidneys, guts and all the other organs are working very hard to maintain homeostasis, balanced, stable state. It’s a great strive, we are constantly under attack of harmful chemicals, viruses, bacterial, change of the pressure, temperature.
It’s not getting easier on the human level. We must fight for the food, for the roof over our head. Other people wants to use us, make us work harder, longer for less. They ask for favourites and attention, demanding more, and more.
We have been programmed, same as on cellular level, to get comfortable, stable. We want secure, easy jobs with great pensions, long, all inclusive holidays, live covers, safe car, beautiful houses. No risk, no tension. Easy life, with remote control in one hand and dish of comfort food in front, watching series about beautiful, young people living in never ending paradise, in the huge house with massive, secured doors blocking us from anything unknown and different.
No, I don’t want it!
Life’s too short for being comfortable. I want to discover, play, conquer and learn every day. I want to use my time on the Earth the best I can, helping others, building things, becoming better in all aspects of my life.
I can only achieve it outside the comfort zone, outside the bubble. This is where is all happening. Being on the edge, uneasy, uncomfortable. Doing things I don’t like, opening my horizons.
It’s not pretty.
Yes, dropping your guard and opening to the world makes you vulnerable and easy target. You will get hurt, many times, but it will only make you stronger and wanting more. Like a small kid, who keeps falling but every single time is jumping back and trying double harder.
