Examples of brightness in a Sentence

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    A Comfort Zone represents status quo, in my honest view, like the stagnant dark water in a pond that often seems so difficult to come out of. Yet you have to step outside your comfort zone, and cross the boundaries to better yourself, and be the best. Only by stepping outside the realm of your comfort zone, you will be able to explore new oceans, and offer your best, something far more superior and beatiful than ever before, to illuminate the world.....like the amazing brilliance and beautiful brightness of a supernova, or a shooting star or even a meteor as they leave their comfort zone and enter into new territories. Strive to re-invent and renew yourself at every stage in life, just like Madonna has done for years, and you will discover your new strengths, awesome powers and asounding beauty that were never there before. Dare to step outside your comfort zone, because that's exactly where the real life begins. Get a Life, my friend.
