Come fly with me

Daily Prompt: Comfort Zone

What are you more comfortable with — routine and planning, or laissez-faire spontaneity?

Simple answer? I don’t know. Possibly that means that I am equally comfortable with both.

I do know that spontaneity is more fun. I find routine to be productive but it can reduce me to tears at times. Then again, I do feel secure when plans are in place for every eventuality. I just like to be able to break free of those plans on a whim, and simply fly off to explore some new pasture or other.

Wherever my Comfort Zone is, I actually prefer being out of it. It makes me feel alive.

A clear case of wanting my cake, and eating it too.

    Thank you so much for the pingback! When a piece doesn’t speak to me, I pretty much play with the concept–like I did in this post–and write what I wanted to write in the first place.

I enjoy reading your comments, please pass the time of day
