I was comfortable in a profession that I no longer found passion or excitement in.
I was comfortable with my eating disorder but it also almost killed me.
I was comfortable being alone but I also needed love + support.
I was living comfortably but also unhappily, until I realized happiness + growth is more important than comfort.
I uncomfortably accepted the end of my marriage.
I uncomfortably pursued my passion for health, wellness, nutrition + fitness.
I uncomfortably committed to recovery from my eating disorder.
I finally let the people who love + support me back into my life.
Today, years + months later, I speak from experience when I tell you it was the best decision I ever made. I built myself up + became a better version of myself because I chose discomfort over comfort, happiness over sadness + passion over stagnation + boredom. And I won’t lie, it was hard.
Pushing through something that makes you feel uncomfortable in hopes that it’ll help you attain something UNCERTAIN takes a lot of mental strength but it’s SO worth it. Uncertainty is scary but truth is, so is living a life where you don’t feel fulfilled, passionate + happy with who you are. In my opinion, settling is even scarier!
So my FRIDAY motivation for you is to stop settling for less than you want, less than you deserve + less than you’re capable of.
