I recently realized ‘THIS” can become a comfort zone holding us back from even better. We know what THIS is as we can see it, taste it, and feel it. Better is still unseen, untasted, and we can’t wrap our arms around it…yet.
I am in the process of selling my condo that I have lived in for 11 years and in those 11 years, the THIS was pretty good the majority of the time. Even though I have wanted a place with a lake view, I wasn’t ready for BETTER. It didn’t sell immediately like I thought it would as hey now THIS is really good. Slowly, and honestly with some apprehension to change, I agreed to paint my place. My comfort zone was being tested into the possibility of even better. The move itself was such a test as THIS was good. The paint job knocks BETTER out of the park and actually opened my eyes to remembering that BETTER isn’t seen, tasted, or felt until we are there. We need to believe and have faith in the BETTER to bring it forth. By appreciating your THIS, even if its challenging, allows even better BETTERS.
So whether you are trying to make your dream relationship, dream job, or dream home fit with your current situation, know that BETTER is truly better. And a little secret, the moment you are honest with yourself and let go of the THIS, then THIS can become your BETTER. Letting go of THIS doesn’t mean it has to go away, it just means you are allowing it to become your BETTER. Sweet little perk don’t you think?
For the next week I invite you to allow THIS to get even BETTER by:
Trusting in your gut to know if this can be enhanced or if it’s time to move on to new experiences.
Understanding that if you are facing challenges in the THIS, it’s simply allowing you to get clearer on what it is you want in your life, it isn’t stopping you from happiness.
Loving yourself and others knowing everyone is doing their best in the moment.
Mostly, my wish for you is to focus on what you want in your life. Focus on how you want to feel in your life: loved, happy, healthy, and abundant. Be those qualities you want in your dream life and whether it’s this, or something better…you will live a life filled with deeper love, laughter, and happiness.
Until next time, love better, live better, be better.
