The Un-Comfort Zone

By: @1stLadyofPR

I was browsing articles sent to me today and scheduling Tweets and posts through our Hootsuite account when I came upon The Daily Love's "Want to IGNITE your creativity? Get uncomfortable…!:" article. At first I thought, "Hmmmm. This should be a good article that would resonate with most people in my feed. I'll tag it to post!" However, that truth-o-meter that I staunchly live by was saying, "Hello?  Isn't this your current state of BEING??"  Even though it almost appeared to be mocking in nature, it's true!

I am a Virgo in every sense of the word!  I can sense the changing tide of Virgo simply because all of my life's MAJOR transitions tends to happen in the eclipse of Fall.  I can recall with vivid memory the most life changing transitions of my life and the time of year in which they have happened.  For instance, my most recent major break-up of a two-year relationship ended last summer/fall; I left corporate America in the Fall of 2008; I decided to relocate from Charlotte (my hometown) to Atlanta in the Fall of 2006 and now that Fall 2012 is upon me, I promise you most times I feel like I'm walking a tight rope between sanity and insanity and fear and faith, however, this sentence in the article struck me the most because it provided such a huge sense of relief:
 "It is in the uncomfortable, scary place that we create the best. When our survival is on the line, our evolutionary impulse to create or die emerges. THAT is when the best stuff comes out of us. Which is why I’ve set one of my main intentions in life to always be on the knife’s edge of my comfort zone and always a little bit afraid."

I am keenly aware that I am being called to bring FORTH in the most amazing ways as I am being pushed beyond my current limitations and abilities. I am doing a little wrestling but I am finding my way!

As painfully true as it is still true, there is always promise in the pain, the frustration, the thwarted plans, the twists, the turns as long as you remain the passenger though!  There is a 'Higher Intelligence' responsible for all of the magic in our lives and we have to learn to TRUST when we can't see. Have FAITH when it seems shaky and PROCLAIM the victory and the MAGIC as it unfolds bigger and better than imagined! Let God drive the bus!

So journey on in the un-comfort of it all and know that it's all working together to create something kinda wonderful!
