It goes without saying that we tend to stay in our comfort zone throughout life. However, when we find ourselves restless in an area of our life, and we know we need to make a change, the thought of moving past the comforts of what we know can outweigh the possibilities of what can be.
Comfort is a nurturing feeling. It keeps us safe and warm. Hence, there is security in knowing everything is just as it should be.
But here is what I have realized in my own work and in the work I do with my clients… comfort can be disguised as fear. Fear of daring to be curious. Fear of the unknown. As well as, fear that if we move from this comfort, we may end up falling flat.
The truth is, we end up missing out on the deep calling we all have within. Whereas, if we are quiet enough to stop and listen, to trust that our inner guide is looking out for us and wants to make our lives even more enriched, we can hear the stillness in knowing that discomfort can move us to places we never imagined would come true for us.
The dreams are there… and they are realized.
Have you ever thought about a change in career or starting a business, but the list of all the reasons why you can’t, won’t, shouldn’t feel like they outweigh the joy and happiness that could come if you shifted your perspective?
Do you imagine yourself, in your own definition, being adventurous to try new things, and surrounding yourself with people who can lift you up to the person you always wanted to be?
Most importantly, is it possible to allow the discomfort of change in order to give yourself the courage to just try? To start? To investigate what your intuition has been gently telling you all along?
