you can do anything.
I found this fortune cookie paper today after it fluttered out of something. A sign? maybe. It is true, when you are comfortable at something, you’re fine. It is also true when you are comfortable, you can do anything.
As an interesting side note, recently I was skimming something about Maslow and his hierarchy of needs. Anyone who has taken Intro to Psychology or Sociology or any class in a similar vein or has self-taught on the subject knows the class usually opens with this. One thing I didn’t know was that their are a few parts of the hierarchy that are left out in most high school and college texts.
I thought of Maslow when I read this. Once basic needs are met, other parts of life can come and hopefully do come together. This leads to a bigger question, what is comfortable? We tend to think in the English mind frame with the word “comfortable.” Comfortable chairs, comfortable clothes, living comfortably, everyone has a different definition and different way of seeing this. One person’s comfort may be another person’s poverty.
It also begs the question, am I comfortable? I can answer, overall, yes, I am. Am I the Great Gatsby? No, but do I want to be? No.
Overall I understand what this is saying. If I’m not comfortable where I am, it is time to improve or move on. If I am comfortable, I can do anything I need to. It is time to get down to business.
