“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
Are you playing safe? Life’s ok but a bit blah and unadventurous?
Are you ready to turn up on the ‘edge’?
As you expand your awareness, you stop avoiding discomfort. You will find that you won’t wait for challenge to come, you will look for your ‘edge’. You know that expansion only occurs at the edge of comfort, the edge of feeling safe. I call it the comfortably/uncomfortable edge!
This is where you can become very aware of the paradox we live. On one hand, when we follow our head and its ideas, we are comfort seeking missiles, always looking for the safe and easy way out with little to no struggle. On the other hand when we are present and aware of the feeling that pulls us from within, we are coming from a space beyond thought that is all about fearless expression and experience. Turning up alive, engaged and involved and seeing what happens!
When working with individuals, I support them in their own experience of what this fully expressed space is about and how valuable it is. A fully expressed liver of life doesn’t look for their life to be safe and smooth, in fact they would naturally be wary if it did. Instead they are actively involved and present to the opportunities that surround them, knowing that it is better to have jumped in and tried something and ‘failed’ than to stay in the comfort zone.
I would love to hear from you and share how I can partner with you to support you to find your edge and stay there. Remember, there is no ‘right’ time to do anything, there is right here and now and it only takes one step at a time. I look forward to hearing from you.
