Each person’s life has many chapters to it. As one chapter ends and a new one prepares to unfold, we typically experience discomfort. This discomfort may show up in the form of a job loss, marital challenges, boredom, feelings of dissatisfaction, fear, or a nagging voice that keeps saying:
“There must be more than this?”
“What do I do now?”
“I can’t keep living like this.” or
“What’s next for me?”
When this happens, most people fear the discomfort and seek ways to flee from it or mask it until the feelings of urgency dissipate.
The truth is, however, that discomfort does not mean there is something wrong. In fact, quite the opposite. Discomfort is a signal that something important is ready to be named, acknowledged, and understood. This ‘something,’ when attended to with care and spaciousness, is often the catalyst for amazing discovery and transformation.
Where do happiness, contentment, meaning, and fulfillment reside? They reside inside of each of us, waiting patiently for us to seek them. And that discomfort we dislike so much… It is actually a loving invitation from our spirit to become courageously curious.
Coaching offered by Courage to be Curious is designed for those who are ready to accept and embrace this invitation.
