“Grow Through What You Go Through” – Unknown

Written for and Published in The Seeds 4 Life.

Many of us find ourselves in situations which take us out of our comfort zones.

Some may cause us anxiety and discomfort. Some may cause us to feel lost, looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. Some may even feel like a monotonous cycle of “stuck in a rut.”

Whatever our judgment of our situation, we can see it using our “comfort zone” as the perspective or we can see it using “opportunity” as the perspective.

The comfort zone perspective sets the situation up to be judged and compared.

The opportunity perspective sets the situation up to be an agent of change.

Growth cannot transpire in judgment and comparison. Growth transpires in change. If we are willing to be uncomfortable, growth will be the first to greet us, and our expanded mind will never shrink back to the comfort zone it began with.

So, go baby, go, and grow baby, grow!

Closed Doors

While you stare at closed doors

Caging yourself in mind’s war

The universe continues to expand

Ready for you to extend your hand.

While you stare at closed doors

Feeling defeated to your core

A window is opened, take a breath

Let your worries go to rest.

While you stare at closed doors

Regretful of the wrong you’ve done before

Know that you have been forgiven

For any malice you have given

While you stare at closed doors

Feeling sorry for your scores

Know, “the only way out, is through”

no one can help you begin, but you.

While you stare at closed doors

Say a prayer,  let love pour

Turn around and leave this room

To your garden, new flowers will bloom
