I recall times in my life when I could no longer ignore my need to change. As a youth, moving to another country, leaving a sordid past, to become a leader in my school; as a wife and mother, thinking my marriage was over, to saving it and helping people stay together; as a successful career woman, but feeling miserable, as I wasn’t serving a purpose God planted in my heart to be a Life Coach.
Each time, I escaped who I thought I was, to become someone better.
Believe me, I didn’t think I needed to change in any of those situations. I was a hateful teen that fought moving across the world. I wanted nothing more than to leave my husband and start a new life. I was ready to retire with that career, no matter how stressful or uncomfortable I felt. Each time I was cocooned in a painful circumstance that led to changing my own heart.
I would love to say I embrace struggles as I know they prepare me for something better. But, really, my human nature to complain and be miserable kicks in every time. My willingness to stay in that place is shorter, so maturity and wisdom are a wonderful thing!
Escape from your tightly knit, uncomfortable place of being stuck, and blossom into the beauty you are meant to be.
