Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today you’re being reminded of the importance of getting comfortable with discomfort.
Many people get stuck at The Call stage of the SHEro’s Journey.
The energy of The Call is light, fun and full of limitless possibilities.
Yet, as soon as you decided to take action, it can stop being so joyful as the reality of making choices become apparent. Maybe you have to let people down, perhaps you change even though those around you want you to stay the same.
The reality of committing to your dreams and doing things differently sets in.
All change brings growth and growth can be uncomfortable, even painful.
This discomfort means that you are growing, you’re moving forward.
What if you could see this discomfort as something that is just part of the process and not something to be resisted or avoided.
Much like having a great workout at the gym, attending a yoga class, or going for a strenuous hike, you may feel a bit stiff the next day, but you know that this discomfort is worth it in the long run as you’ll feel much fitter and stronger for it.
And just like pushing your physical body, the more you push your own growth, the easier it becomes. The more resilient you become and the bolder you become.
Your confidence soars as you trust in your own ability to navigate and overcome any obstacles you face.
Lean into the discomfort, get the support you need, and get comfortable with your own growth.
In this very moment, just pause and take a breath, as feel into the possibility of discomfort.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to think about an action that you’ve been putting off because it feels too uncomfortable.
Now think about how much of your time and energy it will free up to get it done. Just not thinking about it anymore will make you feel so much better.
Do you need some additional help, resources, or knowledge to be able to do this? If so, make a plan; reach out to those who can help, and take action.
Pause, and take a breath. As you choose to move forward and grow.
“I choose growth over comfort”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy the growth that comes from discomfort!
One of the ways that really helps me lean into the discomfort and do the things that I’d rather put off again, or that I have put off again and again and again, it helps me to think in terms of years, not days.
I like to think about the long-term affect of what I’m doing, and the why behind doing it.
It’s easy to avoid the discomfort if we focus on putting off what we need to do because of the immediate feelings we think we’ll experience or the resistance to the action that we feel in this moment.
But if we think about the long-term, we not only know that this discomfort will no longer be there, we know that this discomfort has actually helped towards us attaining our desires and is often necessary to help us get there.
So, when you need to have that conversation, or take that action, focus on the future that it’s helping you to create, rather than the intensity, and possible discomfort, of the next few minutes or hours.
