Growth Through Discomfort

beautiful struggle

A theme that has been repeating itself to me (and I have been trying to avoid quite honestly) is growth through discomfort. I generally believe that things come to you when you approach life with ease/no resistance so the idea that discomfort is required for me to grow was conflicting.  I now am able to see the broader picture where I can understand that some growth (not all growth) can only be attained through stepping outside of your comfort zone. Where the two ideas have now come together is in seeing that like all things discomfort and struggle can be seen as beautiful too. Everything in life is a matter of perspective and when you choose to search for the beauty and lesson in what it is you go through not only does the struggle/discomfort dissolve itself but you are in a place that you could only have been brought through that discomfort.

Have wonderful, growth filled day all ❤

Perspective

I think this is a beautiful quote which came to me at the exact time I needed it (as things always do.) I realized that all the confusion and doubt I was previously feeling and dubbed “growing pains” could also be looked at from the perspective where I was able to better accept the change and process as a gift.  I am going through a change.  I am not who I once was and as part of that I have to be able to release what no longer serves.  All that I viewed as confusion or a struggle was simply love bringing everything up that no longer belonged to me.  I feel light again. 🙂
