We work our entire lives to live more comfortably.

→ We want a lifestyle free of stress and anxiety.

→ We want to be pampered and protected.

→ We want it better than our parents had it.

  • Climate-controlled housing
  • Massages and manicures
  • Alarm systems
  • Heated seats

It all feels good. 

Ironically, it doesn’t nourish us.

For that, we need discomfort and uncertainty. Sometimes that comes with pain. We need to visit a place we rarely go to get to a place of growth we’ve never been to.

In the deep work, we build a level of connection and confidence within ourselves and the world around us.

It’s in these moments of discomfort that we are our true selves.

We seek comfort but we yearn for growth.

These fall at opposite ends of the spectrum but are vital to balance our lives.
