Get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
I have shrunk myself down to what felt like nothing in my past, everything made me anxious, and I missed out on so much life because of this intense fear of being uncomfortable and not having control of any given situation. After way too long of this, I finally made a decision that would completely change my life – literally every bit of it. My inner voice was practically screaming at me to take this step, as opposed to the sweet whisper that it usually guides me with – and I did it… I did it scared.
This was years ago, and I thank myself often for taking this total leap of faith into the unknown. However, lately, I’ve found myself slowly shrinking back into what is comfortable again, I can see it through the little things, and the big. I’ve gotten in the way of doing things that I know would bring me joy, forming deep relationships, and I’ve gotten in the way of this beautiful brand growing into it’s full potential.
But I’m so done with this.
I don’t want to keep shrinking, I want to do big things – big things that require a lot of big steps really damn far out of my comfort zone.
I want to feel free and confident knowing that I can do anything that I want, fearful or not.I want to experience all of life – and that requires stepping out of my comfort zone and into the unknown – and I invite you to do it with me.
THE BIG THINGS, THE LITTLE THINGS, JUST KEEP STEPPING OUTTA THAT ZONE
“Whenever you feel uncomfortable, instead of retreating back into your old comfort zone, pat yourself on the back and say, “I must be growing,” and continue moving forward.” – T. Harv Eker
The more you step out of your current comfort zone, the bigger your comfort zone is; the more you find yourself doing, being, creating and experiencing. The more you step outside of your comfort zone the more comfortable you become with discomfort and fear – you can become friends with it, knowing that you are in the midst of some serious levelling up. The more you step outside of your comfort zone the more you start to trust in yourself and have confidence in yourself – which you deserve x 100000.
Each day in any opportunity that you notice yourself bowing out of something that would either, make life easier (like that perfectly available parking spot that requires parallel parking), or that you would enjoy – remember this moment, and take that step. Sit with the discomfort and know you are blooming every second of it.
Keep doing this, and that thing – you know that thing that sparks a deep passion inside of you that you want to create or do that is so far out of your comfort – will start to feel more realistic with each uncomfortable step.
EXPANDING UNIVERSE: EXPANDING YOU
“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.” ― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth
Did you know the Universe is constantly expanding? Or, that, you are the Universe in your own, unique, concentrated expression?
Just like the Universe – We are not supposed to shrink – we are supposed to expand. The Universe wants to expand, and it wants to expand through us, to grow, express, feel all of life’s joys, love, and create through us. It is the natural way of our existence, and without this natural expansion comes the heavy emotions and states of being – depression, anxiety, deep sadness, constant anger.
Once you see yourself for what you are; a beautiful expression and vessel for this Universes magic and wonder, you will know that expansion is your natural state and it is actually a shit tonne safer – because the more you are uncomfortable the more you grow, the more aligned you are with your true self, the more resilient you become, the stronger you become, the more open to love you become and the more magic in this world can reach you. The more fulfilment our life brings.
This is the kinda life I’m all for – and it means you need to continuously step up and into the unknown, leap into fear and embrace discomfort.
I hope this has sparked some sort of self awareness and/or inspiration. I love you and am so so grateful for you! Jordane x.
