Today I saw this post and it brought me to a standstill. I hadn’t ever really examined what it looks like to truly change … to be born into a different dimension of life. Not just adjust or tweak your life … but to transform it immensely and suddenly.
We so often wish for and day dream about the results we want. We forget that to leave this life of want, discontent, or unhappiness we have to go through the labor of chipping away at the toughness of life that is our constricting shell … from the inside out. We bang our hands, our head, and our feet on that which limits our growth until with a final blow we break the surface. Stretching with all our might we crack open what was life – the “safe”, the known, the familiar barriers that we longed to undo but became so used to.
Suddenly, without our knowing what is on the other side of that shell we come tumbling out into something new. New, rich, fertile dirt of possibility, the stuff that nurtures life. Something that is awe-striking and in moments frightening because the next moment is unknown. We have destroyed the thing that held us in for so long. We are born again into possibility.
Am I brave enough to really do this? I believe, with shaking voice and weak knees, that yes, I am!
