If transformations were easy, everyone would be kind, forgiving, gracious and full of love. We would all be healthy and happy. The world would be a perfect, peaceful place.
But they are not.
Transformation is hard! This quote spoke to me personally bc I can absolutely relate! I’m sure anyone reading this who has done any serious soul searching or intentional growing would say that this is true! 🌟
It takes a lot of bravery to transform our thoughts- bc obviously one must first open their mind enough to admit they need a mental shift in the first place! (Wait? What? 😜). That’s the first obstacle- and some of us never get there. The second obstacle then becomes actually DOING THE WORK. The world isn’t going to shift around us and NOBODY else can do that work for us. There’s nothing more frustrating than being able to see where we need positive change, but not being able to overcome our fear and insecurities to change it. The intentional work we MUST do is a whole other level of scary, y’all! It requires facing fears and peeling back layers of negative behaviors that we’ve grown used to relying on. Those egocentric layers make up a comfort zone SO COZY it almost seems crazy to think of removing them. And because it’s hard, really freaking scary work...a lot of us just throw our hands up and surrender to our ego. But that fear is a LIAR!
Ahhh, if there’s one thing I would scream at the top of my lungs for all those who need to hear it, it would be that. Your fear is LYING to you! Life on the other side of your fears is SO crazy good! Like wayyyy better than that bubble wrapped comfort zone we created for ourselves. There’s SO much power in facing our fears that when we do it once, we want to do it again. And again...🙌🏻 #unstoppable
So for those of you stumbling down this crazy, awesome journey too- you’re brave as hell! I stumble every single day. Keep pressing on, babe. There’s something good coming ❤️. #always
