People don’t move until the pain of where they are is greater than the fear of where they’re going. And, it usually means they’ve had all the pain they can stand. Think of it as standing on the ledge of a burning building. To remains means certain death, but to leap means an uncertain future. Not always easy alternatives to face.
Most of us play it safe. We stick to what we know and are comfortable with. It can be scary to leave our comfort zones and embrace change. But it's worth it! Taking risks can lead to personal growth, new opportunities, and a more fulfilling life. We open ourselves up to new experiences and possibilities. We may discover hidden talents or passions, and we can learn and grow in ways we never imagined.

Today’s writing prompt: practice feeling at ease in your body. Keep that feeling with you all day long.
For me, that means making peace with my body - my past expectations and future fears. It means loving my body every day, as-is, in each moment.
Appreciating all it has done, is doing, and can do to keep me safe and secure. It means being grateful for the way it wraps itself around my soul and carries us through this world of experiences and enlightenment.
Being at ease in my body means loving it for what it has taught me and what is yet to be revealed. Knowing that my body has my back even when I may have thought it was the enemy.
It means trusting that the God who created me is the One who will receive me in the end - from perfection to perfection with a LOT of learning in between.
Life is meant to be lived expansively. To be deeply felt and fully savored. This body is the vehicle given for the journey. Stop wishing for something other than the one and only unique precious body you were given.
It is enough.
