For me GO, is an acronym for growth opportunity. Honestly, it is a more positive spin on a rather uncomfortable process. My growth opportunities appear when I least expect it or when I am not really interested. Seriously, who really enjoys the opportunity to grow? It is tedious, hard work with a roller coaster of emotions. I am on the brink of a doozy. As much as I dislike the GO journey, I am aware how much this propels me to getting closer to the person I am striving to be.
During the process, it is important for me to have an abundance of self-awareness. Knowing that self-care is a far cry from being self-centered. Checking in with myself and not ignoring the discomfort presented, allows me to be honest with myself. For too many years, I shielded myself from the truth by placating my inner being with embellished rationale. It proved to work for a while until I could no longer ignore the writing on the wall.
Stunted by my denial, those major growth opportunities sprung my unconscious inner being into action. Once I realized how the end result allows my world to sparkle, I am more prone to embrace these golden nuggets…..not immediately, but gradually. I know that in order to learn more about myself, it is important to acknowledge these chances with a resounding “YES” instead of a hesitant “maybe”.
