Change is inevitable, growth is optional. I think there is a lesson to be learned in every season of our lives & I know that currently, this is mine. Let's just say the term roll with the punches certainly has been coming to mind more often than not as of late. I know we've all been there.
We make choices everyday & our choices combined with our habits, are what become us. So, it's pretty important to be mindful of what we choose each day. I chose to move across the country, to a brand new city filled with brand new people and brand new experiences. I have a vision for my life & all that I want it to include & somehow I felt like Los Angeles no longer possessed the right set of challenges that I craved. Was it terrifying to move everything & essentially start over? Hell yes, & it's something that will most likely continue to challenge me for many more months to come but it's part of the process.
I think most people work really hard to find a job, then to make a certain amount of money & finally obtain a relationship that they are comfortable with. Comfortable is key, right? When you find yourself able to pay your bills, live on your own & have someone to cuddle & watch movies with on a Friday night we should all be insanely happy, right? In my opinion, wrong on both counts.
We cannot grow if we remain in a state of comfortable. We should never be content when we reach the top of a mountain. When we bust our asses to get to a certain place, you have to stop for a split moment, take in the view then start at the bottom & work your way up once more. Then we do it over & over & over again. Because living in a constant state of comfortable will not afford you the change that you seek.
The words I come back to are: "Los Angeles no longer possessed the right set of challenges that I craved." Finding the right set of challenges is everything. It's the key to living a more fulfilled life & getting more out of it than we even thought possible. Hit the reset button if you need to & find out if you're living in a space that's comfortable or a space that challenges you to be & do more.
