Beauty in Discomfort

When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.
— Paulo Coelho

Embrace what life gives you and let go when it has filled you with everything you can receive from it. When a relationship, job, place, or situation is no longer serving you, release it. Soak in every experience and learn from every mistake.

Inhale. And then exhale.

My anxiety happens worse during transition or when my body and mind is screaming for one. Embrace the challenge of change and take the risk. There is nothing more frightening than settling down. And it’s not even that I’ve experienced so much that I’m addicted to the chaos that comes with the uproot. It’s the fear that I haven’t experienced enough. That there’s so much more I want to do and want to see that the thought of stagnancy and never working towards something amazing scares the shit out of me.

I can embrace the stress and anxiety to transition into something magical, something more than I’m experiencing now. Paulo Coelho said it best: When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too. There’s nothing that gives life to inspiration like putting yourself in the discomfort of something completely new and striving to be better. Striving to be your best version.

Transition. My soul loves it, hates it, fears it, craves it, but most importantly, needs it.
