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 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.

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,
