Chapter: Uncomfortable

Happy New Year! The last 365 days have truly been full of new opportunities, ups, downs, smiles, laughter, frowns and occasional tears. It’s a new year with new expectations. It’s an exciting time to plan and foresee what’s next.

Every year, we set new goals, we tell everyone that it’s our year. We are so happy for a clean slate in a new year. But what have we done differently from the previous year?What is it that I need to do, so that the new year is in fact my year?

In talking with my husband, I came to the conclusion that I’m comfortable. Comfortable doing what I’ve always done, when I’ve always done it and who I’ve done it with. We are friends of comfort. We don’t like to do anything that takes us out that zone. If it’s not what we are use to, then we don’t take chances.

I’m a firm believer that if it’s not broke then don’t fix it. But that doesn’t mean I can’t seek something else. It doesn’t mean that I can’t replace it with something better. It doesn’t mean I can’t be better in another method of doing something.

God certainly positions us with discomfort when he wants us to grow. He’s going to bless us with situations with the intent to learn something. The longer you stay in an uncomfortable situation, the less you become fearful. You’re already there. Just a step closer to the light at the end of the tunnel.

I thought about the light at the end of the tunnel. What could possibly be waiting for me when I get there? Here’s a few things that come with being uncomfortable:

  • Blessings
  • Newness
  • Chances
  • Opportunity
  • Growth
  • Self evaluation
  • Bravery
  • Maturity
  • Truth

I challenge you to walk on that uncomfortable path. Encourage discomfort. Invite that weird feeling you get when it’s new. Welcome uncomfortable situations to 2018!
