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 have an A+++ in Avoidance.
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.
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,
