New is both exciting and scary. I guess that’s why we tend to fight for the status quo. We would gladly trade the excitement that new brings to avoid the fear that could come with it. We are the reason our lives seldom move forward like they should. We accept the mediocrity of life because it promises us a quiet and predictable existence that allows us to focus on our preferences. The problem is that a life lived without the risk of new ends up feeling like you watched everything on Netflix and every day you scroll through looking for something interesting but settle for something mediocre or a repeat of something good that you’ve already experienced. Life is more than our comfort and safety. There is a time and place for that but there is also a time to step out into the unknown to see what else you can do.
