I feel deeply… And… I’m okay with that…now.
One of my favorite quotes from The Alchemist by Paul Coelho. He has mastered the art of disguising life lessons with interesting stories full of adventure. Great book. Great writer. Better messages.
Growth, for me is a necessity. I would say it’s everything I strive for. Everyday is a chance to learn more and more about yourself. What are you passionate about? What do you enjoy doing? What is so intriguing to me about this subject is that even though some things will stay consistent through out your life, there are aspects that are forever changing. The person you were last year, last month, and even yesterday aren’t the same people. Enjoy the ride. Pay attention. And most importantly… Embrace the change.
They hold us back. Forgive.
Wow. This really touched me. Sparked something inside. I’ve heard many comfort zone related quotes-as many of us have, but for some reason this spoke to me. The comfort zone is a beautiful place. It’s what us as humans yearn for….safety, familiarity, stability, and any other adjective you may personally associate to SECURITY. Aren’t we taught to seek shelter for safety?! BUT. Nothing ever grows there. It’s almost a beautiful contradiction. It’s a personal struggle of mine. Which is another reason why I am so attracted to this subject at the moment. Taking risks and exploring opportunities only leads to the very thing that I constantly strive for…growth. It’s a lot easier said than done-especially for me. But don’t we all start somewhere?! Take a step.
