Embracing Discomfort for Lifelong Learning

Embracing Discomfort

Yea, I don’t really like discomfort.

My knee jerk reaction to any discomfort, pain, or uncertainty is to run the opposite direction.   

Or to go immerse myself in fun fiction.

Or to eat a whole container of ice cream.

Or to start cleaning closets and moving furniture.

Or to research and read about the topic that I am avoiding.


I honestly think the first time I really had to deal something really painful and hard with out running away was childbirth!

But avoidance is not helping me get stronger.

Or learn.

Or grow.

So, I wrapped my arms around a huge discomfort I have and made a short video chatting about my thoughts on this topic.  

What about you?

Is embracing discomfort a challenge for you?

How do you help yourself get out of your comfort zone?

Get through the growing pains?

I’m going to challenge myself this week to practice embracing discomfort and I’ve made a chart to keep track of what I try and do this week.

How will you embrace discomfort this week?

Here’s to a week of learning all the time, enthusiastically!

With a big hug for you and discomfort,
