Embrace The Uncomfortable

Change is hard.  Some days it starts first thing in the morning as you try to get out of bed on a cold winter morning. 

It is so comfortable under the warmth of the blankets.  You know that the moment you get out from under them it is going to be a shock to the system and it is going to be uncomfortable for awhile.

But what eventually happens?  You get used to being up, your body forgets about being tucked under the comfort of the blankets (hopefully), and you move on with your day.

The moment you accept the fact that change needs to happen, is going to happen, and that being uncomfortable for awhile is part of the process, the sooner you can move on with whatever changes may need to happen.

To grow, to be better today than you were yesterday, you need to accept the comfort in being uncomfortable.  If you are uncomfortable you have an opportunity to be better. 

Embrace being uncomfortable.  It’s the only way to truly experience the changes that you need and desire.

I’m cheering for you.
