comfort zone

Future you will catch you

I heard this beautiful quote from Elizabeth Gilbert the other day and it really stuck with me:

Fall if you must, the woman you are becoming will catch you. 

So good, right? Some say that life doesn't get easier, we just get stronger. And I think that is true too. We're constantly growing and looking back we'll all discover so many things we used to freak out about that are now part of daily life. 

If we make a conscious choice to move forward, no matter what life presents us, our comfort zone will automatically grow. We will expand in experience and consciousness. You have survived every day of your life so far, so no matter what you are going through, you will make it. The future you will catch you. If you fall, maybe you'll grow wings. 

You can take care of you. I know you can. And you can invite others in. You can ask for help if you want. But ultimately, you have the resources, internal and external to grow through anything.

Don't wait for confidence before you act

It's not you waiting that will give you the confidence you want, it's you acting. It's by doing the things that scare you that you realize you can get confident. It's not the other way around. 

I love how Mastin Kipp puts it:

If you're not in mortal danger, fear is a compass showing you where to go. 

You don't have to of course, it's always up to you. But if you want to live the life of your dreams, you've got to dare to be the person you need to be to live that dream. If the life of your dreams is inside your comfort zone then stay, if it's something else, get going. Move, and try, and dare, and you'll notice with time, what once scared you is now easy-peasy and what was once totally in your risk zone is now only a light stretch. Act how you want to feel and the confidence is just an added bonus.

With all my love,
