Although starting over can sometimes feel like an incredibly difficult undertaking, always remember that in order for us to make room for who we are today we are often tasked with the important responsibility of letting go of many of the things, people, places, habits, lifestyles, dreams, and even desires that once defined us.
Coming close to death for the third time three years ago, and then again for the fourth time about a year afterward definitely helped me to do this in order to reprioritize what matters most in my life.
Here is my reflection:
If you are going through a transition or transformation and sometimes feel overwhelmed by the intensity that comes from working those change muscles, it may be useful to draw strength and inspiration from one of the most powerful illustrations of transformation in action that exists on Earth and just breathe through those metaphorical labor pains.
Relax into the process that is unfolding within you so that you can successfully give birth to the healthy new life, identity, idea, business, lifestyle, or whatever else you may be creating; let its birth through you be the truly spectacular unfolding that it is.
And also, congratulations on your evolution by the way, in case you have not stopped to celebrate your progress and need a reminder of how far you have come.
