“Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship.” I’m not sure when I first heard Denzel Washington deliver this gem, but I do remember the hundred pound truth bomb exploding over my head. His message is simple: comfort gets us nowhere. Adversity inspires meaningful change.

I realized a while ago that I was comfortable with loneliness, but I wasn't happy. There's a huge difference. The brain will do anything it can to maintain the status quo and convince you that you don't need to change, even if you're suffering, because change is dangerous.
What a great blog.
I agree 1000% that comfort isn't going you anywhere,

Couldn’t agree more Jean.
