Growing Pains

Growing Pains #rawselfieseries ... Today I’m feeling like a freshly cracked seed struggling to find comfort in new soil. How will I ever find my way thru the darkness to the light? Before I was just a seed. I was potent with life, but I was safe. Now I am exposed and vulnerable. I’m growing and morphing and expanding whether I like it or not. Everything is new and different. All I can do is trust the process and remember my destiny: to be a flower.

I share this because it’s real. Being on a healing path can be brutal. Growing can be painful. Excruciating. 
Here are some tips that help me when I am going through it:

Surrender.

Say YES to how you’re feeling and accept it without judgment

Let it be and let it flow THROUGH you

Trust the process

Don’t identify with what you’re feeling

Cultivate compassion for your tender state knowing that it’s exactly what makes you strong enough to bloom.

In solidarity,
