Change is never easy. Some people will spend their lives attempting to alter their exterior experience so that they never have to grow or feel uncomfortable internally. That takes an enormous amount of energy. Right now, there are countless people suffering through life exhausted and stressed all the time, unsure why and believing it to be normal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After losing my dream job a few weeks ago, I started to shut down. My heart was broken and I didn’t want to feel it. But I fought my instincts to protect myself. I wasn’t in danger, just uncomfortable. I breathed into it and I opened up. I had two options, turn into the pain to experience and move through it or store it and allow it to subconsciously affect me going forward. So I felt it. I felt it fully and I cried and I screamed and I got angry and now it’s time to move on.
My first love, the dream I chased for a lifetime, didn’t work out... it sucks. It sucks hard. But life moves forward and I have to also. There are other things I love. I love food, eating and cooking, and I love meditation, breathwork and sharing healing space with others. So that’s what I’m going to do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In death, there is rebirth. In pain, an opportunity to heal. One chapter of my life has ended and now another begins. And who knows, maybe it will be even better. I have a tremendous amount of faith in life and its ability to evolve into something greater, so I will lean on that. Change is never easy, but sometimes it’s necessary. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
