“If we are going to achieve our purpose in life, we must be willing to fall out of grace and accept its lessons. When we feel righteous about ourselves, or deny our brokenness, we are fighting against the higher states of grace that await us.” –Sobonfu Somé
Our natural reaction to pain is to shirk from it – to pull back… to run from it, hide from it, or push it away. Yet, if we spend our lives dodging every uncomfortable emotion that bubbles up, we stay in the same constricted place.
To live a rich, growth-filled and ever-evolving life, acknowledge & accept the thorns in life just as you celebrate the beauty of the rose petals the calming sounds of a lake, or the smell of mountain air. A gentle start to this process is to sit with your emotions as they arise and let them unfold – to truly feel them!
