Why do you stay in prison when the door is wide open?

A powerful question to ask yourself.

At times my answers have surprised me.” I have stayed in prison out of fear, doubt, and a sense of obligation.

To stay with those I love, the guilt of growing beyond some friends and family, the unknown that creates uncertainty.

Because of what the next level required of me, because I was too blinded by belief to see, the door really was open to me.

Because it was my rightful place, because it was all I knew, because I didn’t feel worthy, because I didn’t believe I was meant to leave, I had grown comfortably uncomfortable in this prison I was born into.

But yes the door was always open!

Have a good day Wishing you health, peace and empowerment.

Fear! Our greatest instinctual fears.

Fear of the unknown is one of our greatest instinctual fears. For many the first and almost automatic response to feeling fear is to to pull back into the comfortably uncomfortable zone.

That place where we know what to expect, creating a sense of comfort and yet, we are not fulfilled or where we want to be, leaving us with a different type of discomfort. A discomfort that is easier in the moment but has little to no chance of ever improving.

Each success comes with change. Each dream come true brings change. Becoming a parent brings great change. Each magical place you travel is possible only through change.

The greatest blessings you will ever know are wrapped in change.When the urge to resist or avoid change emerges, try remembering that this temporary discomfort is your choice, and you are welcoming growth into your life rather than chaos.

Change reminds me of a flowing river: We either spend our lives fighting to swim upstream or choose to swim downstream, harnessing the current’s power. Once you’ve decided to turn around in the water, though, there’s directing yourself through the flow.

When you’re ready to set your direction and ride the waves, it helps to catch your bearings first by identifying where you are in your change process.

When we begin to see the beauty and blessings in change, our fear begins to subside. If we take the time to teach our minds to see that everything we desire flows on waves of change, we may just find we become excited instead of intimidated by the process of positive transformation.

It is a learned skill, not an automatic preset. Wishing you all eyes that see the beauty in change go on just go for it!

Have a good day Wishing you health, peace and empowerment.
