I was looking at myself in the mirror and feeling unsatisfied with what I saw, I was reflecting on the natural abilities I was given - tools to tackle life with, and feeling ungrateful for what I had utilised them for thus far and overall pretty discontent with a seemingly perfect life online.
Shamefully the route of most of my doubts for sharing more transparently is I feel like I have an image to uphold based on these prior beliefs and understandings that people have of me from my travel days…And now as I try to wrap my head around humanity on a deeper, more conscious level and my role and purpose within it I feel like this chapter may have led people that followed me for pre conceived ideas of me, astray somewhat…
Heard a ripper quote today I thought I’d share; “It only hurts, if you don’t want it.”
While I know ‘literally’ this isn’t true, the philosophy behind it really resonated with me as I hope it will for you... 👊🏽🦁⚡️ It’s been said before, but anything worth achieving isn’t going to come easy…Therefore pain is a pre-requisite to the desired outcome, whatever it is...Which means if you are feeling pain, you’re on the right track and should welcome it with open arms! Haha
So I challenge you, and myself; this week when you feel pain, instead of letting it hurt - bask in it, get comfy with it, love it. Know that it’s just there to hold us accountable when nobody else will, to remind us that what we’re doing is worth it and for that, Pain may just be the best friend we ever have.
Wishing you a lot of pain this week, Happy Monday 👊🏽
