“Courage is mastery of fear, not absence of fear.”
My 20 year old nephew left for Taiwan this week to teach English and learn Mandarin for one year. We went for a farewell hike and I asked him what he was looking forward to most. He thought about it for a while and then replied:
“I’m looking forward to being uncomfortable so I have to grow and evolve…to feeling like I’m going to pass out from fatigue because my brain can’t compute the language yet…to feeling completely vulnerable and on the edge surrounded by the unknown…to being pushed beyond my limits and discovering what I’m made of.”
I was impressed. Being uncomfortable in order to expand and transform is a great stepping stone to carry a victory with you for the rest of your life.
Tomorrow is 9-9-9. Another gateway of positive change. These gateways are not symbolic, they are planetary alignments that create frequency specific openings that require our conscious participation if we want to merge with the opportunity. 9-9-9 is also a new moon, opening the way for new beginnings.
All transformation takes courage. To become a better person, to have more success, to expand in consciousness and transform your life often require uncomfortable choices for improvement. Be brave, do what it takes to reach your dreams, write out your intentions and goals, think big and be careful what you ask for because this alignment carries more power than we are used to.
Blessings on your courageous life journeys my friends
