Growth Takes Time
“Whatever makes you uncomfortable is your biggest opportunity for growth”
Growth takes time & it can sometimes be uncomfortable. When you are outside of your comfort zone, amazing things can happen. This is where the greatest opportunity to learn, grow & evolve lies.
However, learning to trust & to let go can be trickier that simply saying the words or thinking about it. Implementing new routines or seeking the road less travelled can sometimes present a challenge to the part of you that doesn’t like change. I know that I am totally guilty of this - I’ve had to practice stepping outside of my comfort zone (with little pep-talks, positive affirmations & consistency of action).
What works for one person may not work for another & your personal journey is unique & beautiful, just like you. Growth in whichever area of your life you are focusing on may take time & it may present you with challenges, (that could deter you from continuing), but please remember that it’s at precisely this moment that you must keep forging onwards. It’s always darkest before the dawn (favourite Florence & the Machine song), & mustering that extra ounce of courage & believing in yourself even more can unlock the most amazing results!
I’ve learnt that I can’t click my fingers and have immediate results which is sometimes really annoying but in the grande scheme of this beautiful tapestry of life, it’s the winding road with bumps & challenges that teach ultimately teach me the most. When I try to fast-track or take the simpler route, I miss-out on the precious lessons & the opportunities for personal growth.
If you can relate to this & you are currently working towards something, please keep going & believe in your capabilities, trust your gut & don’t listen to that voice that might try to stop you from achieving your life goals.
All my love & encouragement,
