Comfort in the wrong places

Safe harbor is a comforting place to be. We can steel away from the cares and concerns of the world, and let the storms pass. Or, we can be like the navy, and ride out of the harbor and into the storm. An aircraft carrier has a better chance of survival on the move instead of moored in the harbor. That's a difficult concept to grasp. Movement is better than stasis. In anything. The movements don't have to be huge, but they have to be constant. Little things, repeated every moment, every day, so that they become natural, automatic. Second nature. This is what I'm aiming for. Little movements, little battles. Constant movement forward. If I can get the little things down and down, the larger things should be easier to handle. Should be.
