On today’s ‘Wednesday Wisdom’ I share some really good advice I recently received ~ be with what’s uncomfortable. You probably know, the holidays can bring up all sorts of different feelings for each of us; some people love this time of year while some absolutely dread it and just want it to be over. I am somewhere in between. For me the holidays bring up feelings of loneliness and triggers around over-consumerism.
It is easy to want to “run away” and unplug for the season like I did last year when I went to Hawaii. I was thinking about doing that again this year but when I shared that with my coaches they gave me great advice; don’t escape ~ be with the discomfort. I love this advice as I want to feel all my feelings, even what’s uncomfortable. So, this year, instead of escaping somewhere and unplugging from the holiday, I am going to embrace it. I am willing to be uncomfortable and am committed to staying here in the Bay Area and welcome whatever comes my way.
Check out this week’s video blog about the wisdom of just being with discomfort.
I would love to hear your wisdom! What do the holidays bring up for you and how are you committed to facing those feelings?
Please leave a comment on the blog so we can all learn from you!
PS ~ Whatever the holy daze bring up for you, I am wishing you love, connection & presence.
