The lust for comfort murders the passions of the soul.” 

~ Khalil Gibran

 

Wow, does it ever!  We get so settled…so content with the mundane that we forget to reach outside of ourselves!  A life filled with passion is paramount; it’s okay to be comfortable, but we should always be reaching to be our best (and trust me, there’s room for improvement each and every day)!

Good Day, My Friends!

I am so sorry that so much time has passed between my last post and this one. I’ve been swamped at the J-O-B, and it’s been difficult to find time to do the things that bring me the most joy (like writing). Never fear, I’m back. I’m still stressed, but I’m going to share a quote with you today that is WAY too thought-provoking for me to not share. Have a great day!

With joy,
Kimmie

I know that the familiar is comfortable and safe, but it also can hold you back from living the life that you deserve! Don’t be afraid to explore new things and challenge yourself (and maybe even your way of thinking)…

i dared to dream a dream
a dream where i was more than my fears
more than my insecurities
more than myself

i dreamed that I could touch the heavens
that i was comfortable in my own skin
that i was so much more than i ever thought I could be

i dreamed of soul-stirring words and beautiful melodies
of lyrics that connected people and moved them to action

i dreamed that my words touched hearts and made them feel

today, i have touched my dream

You are the page, the ink, the poem.
You are the beautiful creation you choose to be.”
