Growth processes can be daunting and are certainly uncomfortable. However, growth is a verb that we can all successfully conjugate. We often times want to avoid all the discomfort caused by the growing pains, forgetting that it is exactly this process that makes our most precious goals available to us. I’ve been through this process myself and because it’s a repetitive cyclical process, I’ve come to realize that we can only soar to great heights, if we know how to explore great depths.
And yes, fear of the unseen, grief of our older self, the discomfort of building new habits are all growing pains and thus part of the process. This is the exact reason why I’m no longer bothered by their presence; I rather choose to find out what they’re trying to reveal to me.
Are you ready to start the intentional process of growth but still wondering how to?
