Everyone likes to feel comfortable. We live for it. We cant help but chase it and when we find it, there’s no looking back. Unfortunately, this ever-going tug of war is an illusion. Our minds playing tricks on us. Because regardless of how we feel, reality is always changing, and so are we. If this is something you can accept, then you are ahead of the game.
Lets start with ourselves. If you break things down to the smallest detail. We are not the same for one day to the next. Everything about us is always changing. Age, hair color, height, weight, dreams, preferences, location, likes, dislikes, family, friends, material possessions, I could go on and on. You are change. We are the change. Realization of this is powerful. You have been doing this without even thinking about it. Changing, flowing, adapting into an always changing world around you. Embrace all of this and you will master a big part of life. Nothing will ever stay the same and change is the only constant. Dont believe me? Test it. Name something that is now the same as it was 5 years ago. okay, 10 years. okay, now 20. If it hasnt changed yet, keep adding more years. Point is, things will change, ALLways. And we are part of that change.
Look around you. Is this where you were yesterday? Im not talking about your mentality. You have physically moved, obviously. Rather you realize it or not, everything around us is growing and changing just like we are. I believe “Scientist” call this, shelf-life. Sure, there are Ocean creatures that out-live probably anything above the sea level. But even outside of what we deem as life, physical, material objects are also subject to the unforgiving reality of constant change.
So, whats the point of all this? What does change have to do with being comfortable? Well, thanks for asking!
If you know that everything is always changing, then you can always be prepared for this. You can prepare on many levels. Mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, you name it. This gives you the advantage in knowing that you can take care of things your way. Because, lord knows, we want to be comfortable. Or even if things dont go our way, which there is a good chance of happening depending on other aspects we can discuss in a different blog post.
Its almost as if we like to forget that things are constantly changing. Its like we want to play this game of being surprised and not knowing. Well Friends, Im wayyyy over that game. I remember. We’ve been here before. We’ve seen and done this dance before.
Things will always change and if we know this and push ourselves out of our comfort zone, we’ve now stepped into the unknown. But we’ve done it intentionally and have our intentions set on what is going to happen for us. This is where the magic happens, the unknown. This is Alpha & Omega territory. This is where we live and where we die every day. This is where I am as we speak. Im not a blogger or a writer. This is an unknown. We already accepted the fact that everything is always changing. And prepared ourselves in any way and every way possible to get the change that we desire. This is how its done. Know that its coming. See it, feel it, breathe it. You ARE the change.
So dont let other people tell you whats best for you or what you should be feeling. When you know whats coming, do one even better and create the change you want to see. You can tell them, Fuck what you heard, this is my shit. I knew it ws coming, I was prepared. Be confident in knowing that you were the change that you see. Be comfortable knowing that your comfort zone is always changing and its part of life. And remember, we signed up for this.
