Let’s get uncomfortable!

You’re tired. You’ve been tired for way too long and you know it’s negatively affecting you. Giving up or going on like this is unacceptable so what do you do? How do you make a change?

All solutions require change. The trouble is that when we want something in our lives to change, we want one or two parts to change but we want everything else to remain just like it is, thank you very much. If there is change that affects what we don’t want changed, we give up on the whole shebang even though we know it is necessary. “Don’t make me uncomfortable while I’m changing” we pray. That prayer is never answered the way we want it to be. God knows better.

CHANGE IS UNCOMFORTABLE! You have to feel hungry sometimes if you’re going to lose weight. You have to feel and not give in to cravings if you are going to beat an addiction. You have to work real hard and study for more than ten days if you want to learn a new language. You have to take a chance on being terribly uncomfortable if you are going to start exercising, to ask for a raise, to tell a toxic person to get lost, to stand up against abuse, to divorce, to give up a life that seems secure to go for your dream, to ask for what is rightfully yours, to do what you know is right for you. In other words, if you want it to happen, you gotta rise above feeling bad and just go for it.

So how do you get more sleep? You make changes. You start by understanding that it may make you or someone else uncomfortable but it has to change. You deserve to feel better. You deserve to sleep better. Write out on a piece of paper why you are not sleeping and write down as many possible reasons as you can. Start coming up with solutions. It doesn’t matter how far fetched they may seem, it starts the ideas flowing and the more they flow the quicker one that suites you will come along. No, aliens are not going to come down and quiet your house or watch your children (Angels might!)or someone that you are care-taking or stop someone from snoring or drinking but write everything down anyway. If your thoughts are keeping you awake, learn to meditate, learn to control that jabber box. Learn to ask for help as uncomfortable as that may seem.

There are solutions ONLY if you are open to change and the uncomfortableness that comes with it. Be courageous. Be okay with everything changing instead of just that one thing. Know that you weren’t created to suffer. A better life is just an uncomfortable adjustment away. Go for it!

    Good post. I learn something more challenging on completely different blogs everyday. It should always be stimulating to learn content material from other writers and follow a bit something from their store. I’d desire to use some with the content on my weblog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link on your net blog. Thanks for sharing.
