Growing Pains

Ever try squeezing into something? Whether it’s a packed elevator or those beautiful, half size too small shoes, it’s no fun, it’s uncomfortable and you can’t wait to get out of it.

This can happen in your life as well when you try holding onto things that no longer serve or fit you. From the greatest life event to the seemingly insignificant, when you stop growing, you start shrinking.

For quite some time now I’ve been trying to force myself to enjoy my online space. But somehow, it always seemed to dull my excitement for the work I was doing. I told myself it didn’t matter and the work would shine through, however; when you’re bored or indifferent about a space, your work will never be as vibrant and meaningful as it could be.

I’m glad to say that I’ve created a better space and I’m looking forward to fully moving in and expanding here. The growing pains are necessary. If you pay attention, they help guide, push and enhance you.

Feeling uncomfortable isn’t meant to send you running in another direction; it’s meant to push you closer towards your objective. It means you’re growing, developing and transitioning to a new place. So instead of trying to squeeze into old clothes, old space or old thinking, find your new dimension – the place where you’re longing to be.

Remember, you don’t have to remain anywhere. Move forward, keep growing and thrive. Believe you can and then go for it. Let the growing pains enrich your life.
