Have you noticed how your life can shrink around you until one day you wake up and wonder, what actually happened to my life? What happened to me? Your life feels so small and so limited you can’t even seem to locate it.
You remember the way you used to be and how life used to feel. There was a time you were always taking risks and stepping out of your comfort zone. It wasn’t easy to live like that – by definition stepping outside your comfort zone could never be easy. But you also thrived on it. You knew that if you weren’t taking risks, you weren’t living.
But somewhere along the way, you started letting yourself be just a little more comfortable. Then a little more. And a little more.
Slowly but surely your risk-taking muscle that you’d worked so hard to build, shrivelled and went underground. At first you didn’t even notice. Life felt quite nice, quite undisturbed, quite easy.
But that can only last so long. As soon as growth stops, decay begins. Soon, the boundary fence of your life stops expanding and starts closing in on you until it’s so tight up against you that you can hardly breathe.
And now here we are. Everything in your life looks wonderful and yet you wander through your days feeling like you’re only half alive. Somehow, you totally lost sight that the world is an endless game of possibility.
When you stop seeing with possibility eyes, you stop living. You start believing that the way things are is the only way they can be.
You stop believing that new doorways can open at any moment. Doorways that lead not just into the next room that looks very much like this one, but doorways that send you hurtling through worlds until you land with a bump in a brand new landscape that is entirely new in every way.
When you access the energy of possibility, something inside of you reawakens. This reawakened part understands that life, with all its seriousness and sorrows, is also a game of joy and expansion.
Sitting in this energy field, you feel the power and possibility of your life. You feel how the boundary fence surrounding you is made entirely from the limits of your own mind. You feel the creative energy of the universe pulsing through you. You feel vibrant and alive once more.
You make a promise to yourself to keep your eyes open and to keep living from this place of possibility. And you will start today by taking one simple step outside of your comfort zone. Because now you’ve remembered that this was what made life worth living.
To taking risks, stepping outside your comfort zone, and living in a world of possibility!
Love and COURAGE,
