In order to create growth in our life, and to change as a better person, we have to go through challenges and face fears, and make changes. That seems to be the generally accepted process. We aren’t supposed to skip a part of that. We have to face the changes and feel everything to get to the end point. The end point being the reward of a better, upgraded person. A person a rung higher than where we were before.

I’m not always a rule-follower, but I can acknowledge that there is just a certain way we have to process though some of the things we want to accomplish.

I’m at a crossroads. I want to take a leap forward. There’s an easy way, and then there’s at least 2 other much more challenging ways.

One direction will force me to be honest about something I don’t want to address. This direction will cause additional challenges, force different growth, cause hurt, and bring relief. The end result will bring me closer to the ultimate goal in the long run. Or, just busting through this road block will allow me to land near where I currently am, but come out more honest.

Another direction keeps me in a place that I perceive will hold me back emotionally regardless of the end outcome, but will fast track my future into the unknown. Or, this choice could launch me headfirst into a breakthrough that I didn’t think was possible (and even after making that statement I laugh, because really, I’m sacrificing myself in this route.).

The easy route could net me the desired outcome. There will certainly be strings attached and it limits my hard fought for independence. Or the easy route will be a straightforward “no” and that’s the end of that.

There may be additional options. But those three are the most obvious. And three is a good non-intimidating number.

I know this whole post is vague. But I needed to get out some of the crap floating though my head after a meeting I had this morning. The one thing that I can really point to is that I have to take more ownership over my heart. I have to prepare to let my guard down and be brutally honest. That is what really terrifies me.
