Recently a friend and I were discussing the importance of allowing yourself to be uncomfortable.
When we're uncomfortable, it usually comes from a place of fear. When we surrender to fear, we're met with freedom. Freedom allows us to be open. Open to experiences, people, feelings or thoughts that we may not have allowed ourselves to receive before. And in my experience, that's where the good stuff happens.
When we allow ourselves to be uncomfortable, we grow. We feel the freedom in that growth. The expansion in that moment. Eventually though, we will come back to that contracted feeling of discomfort; there is no finishing this work. The back and forth, contraction and expansion, forever in process, is what life is all about.
This idea that we are constantly in a state of flux, was the inspiration behind creating our publication, In Process, and I'm so thrilled to announce that issue 1 has arrived.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Issue 1 can be found here.
