Great things that transform our lives NEVER come from comfort zones. They usually involve pain.

It can be frustrating at times when you're faced with challenges you never expected would bring discomfort, whether caused by people you trust and love or circumstances at work. I'm coming to a place where I feel God or the universe has a way of grabbing your attention from our so called "busy lives", saying, "slow down, be still with me". Even when things appear to go haywire, "Trust in me and see my truth only if you will sit with me". Stop trying to calculate, push through and over analyze situations, for all your thoughts of how things should or could go doesn't matter. Just surrender and be still, for in stillness you will find the answer you're seeking. 

I just read something from Eckhart Tolle that says, "Surrender is the simple but profound wisdom of yielding to rather than opposing the flow of life." Instead of fighting it, just allow it to be by accepting it. It doesn't mean you're going along with it, or you're weak. All it means is you're no longer fighting against it. For what we resist persist. Every time I catch myself resisting something I like to remind myself by asking "why am I resisting this?" It's usually a life lesson waiting for me on the other end. What are you resisting today that is causing you unnecessary discomfort? Have a great day!
