I’ve been very lucky in my life so far. I have not experienced traumas. So last year, 2020, was by far, the most uncomfortable year of my life.
Between the discomfort I purposefully created for myself (in all the goal setting and striving and failing and learning and persevering) and all the discomfort I experienced while processing all the events and all my thoughts about the people and the world around us…I felt uncomfortable every single day…many times a day.
Those little red flags — the insecurity, fear, confusion, doubt, worry, frustration, stress, unsureness, questioning, trouble, and lack of commitment — they were my little alarm bells that sounded when I was in the wrong mindset. When I had my map turned upside down.
They reminded me to re-assess. To remember who I am and to remember my goals. To re-program my navigation system (my mindset) and correct my course.
So while 2020 was the year I’ve felt the most uncomfortable. It was also the year I felt the most fulfillment, joy, pride, humility, abundance, inspiration, generosity, exhilaration, freedom, and, most of all, OPTIMISM.
What does your discomfort tell you?
