As you are shifting, you will begin to realize you are not the same person you used to be.
The things you used to tolerate have now become intolerable.
Where you once remained quiet, you are now speaking your truth.
Where you once battled and argued, you are now choosing to remain silent.
You are beginning to understand the value of your voice, and there are some situations that no longer deserve your time, energy and focus.
Sometimes, though, you are not sad, but you are not happy either.
You can smile and joke around others, but when you are alone at night, you don’t know how to feel.
The point made in these quotes I have found around the web is that we are human beings, emotional creatures with ups and downs.
We experience periods of growth, insightful changes and breakthroughs and periods where nothing seems right; we feel hopeless and lost. No matter how emotionally intelligent we are, it seems like nothing makes sense, not even ourselves.
But I can assure you that even in those periods you are growing.
When nothing seems right, when the pain is at the highest possible peak, is when you have to unleash your faith and trust in the process.
At the right time, you will see that life, through pain, was preparing you for the next level. It prepared you for the next chapter of your life where you needed to be stronger, faster, more courageous, more patience and resilient. Unbreakable!
No matter how difficult is your life right now, never forget that this is the moment when life is shaping a new and better version of yourself.
“Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into manifold temptations; knowing that the proving of your faith worketh patience. And let patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing.” – James 1:2 – ASV.
