Archer Aiming

In the world of archery, comfortable bows never launch arrows.

Until the bow is stretched to near-breaking, the arrow never fulfills its purpose or reaches its target.

I fear that our craving for comfort may be slowly killing us all because we’ve redefined the term.

“Comfortable” means “able to be comforted” or “able to comfort.”

It doesn’t mean easy, undemanding, smooth or soft.

Where do you need to be bent?

How will the arrows in your quiver find their target?

And how willing are you to risk stepping outside that pillowy comfort zone to make it happen?

It’s Stretch Time.
