New Chapters And Old Beliefs
Change may be inevitable but that doesn’t mean it’s comfortable. Transitions are life’s way of telling us it’s time to reexamine our present way of being. They force us to develop and grow as individuals.
During these times we can feel off-balance. The ground beneath our feet rumbling like an earthquake. Sometimes we find only tiny cracks and small fissures. Other times we uncover gaping holes and seismic upheavals.
Our expectations entrap us. The ”shoulds” and “musts,” the demands we tell ourselves or place on those around us. We allow our thoughts and feelings to create havoc in our minds dictating these thoughts as truths when actually, they’re not reality at all. Where are the facts for these thoughts?
“You will not grow if you sit in a beautiful flower garden, but you will grow if you are sick, if you are in pain, if you experience losses, and if you do not put your head in the sand, but take the pain as a gift to you with a very, very specific purpose.”
― The Mouthpiece of the Spirit
