Just reading the word resistance, can’t you just feel the strain and ache in your body? You would think for such a common experience we would start to feel more comfortable with it, but it is the discomforting feeling that is the key to our greatness.
We resist many things all day long. We resist jumping out of bed as soon as that alarm goes off in the morning. We resist that workout before or after work because we are tired and feel the desire to rest. We resist change (oh, do we resist change)… so we allow ourselves to stay in jobs we don’t like, relationships that aren’t healthy and we allow ourselves to become steamrolled for other people’s agendas. Yes, resistance is a very common experience, isn’t it?
The freedom to choose plays an intricate role with this concept of resistance. We can choose to stay in a relationship that no longer serves us. We resist leaving because we don’t want to be alone or be judged by others. Or, we can choose to leave that relationship and face all of the emotional turmoil and hardship that is sure to follow. Again, the key is the discomforting feeling in which that resistance gives us.
The discomfort is what triggers us to act. Whenever you feel resistance you know you are on the cusp of making an important life decision.
A fabulous question to ask yourself is, “Is this decision going to get me closer to my goals or further away from them?”
By sleeping in when your alarm sounds, are you getting closer to your goals or further away from them? Do you see how powerful this can be?
Resistance allows us the amazing opportunity to grow mentally strong and hold ourselves accountable. By making positive decisions (notice I didn’t use good vs. bad) we truly start to see an unfolding of the purpose in which we are here to fulfill. We truly see the Miracle in which we are. We gain a sense of power that allows us to give back on a bigger level while living the lives we were born to live.
So on this day, I invite YOU to step into your power. Step into your greatness and Be that Miracle. Make positive decisions that impacts your life, and the lives of others, in a positive way. I honor you for taking this first step.
