There are times when it is necessary to step outside your comfort zone and try something different. There are times to recognize your limitations and remain within them. There are times to challenge yourself, and times to be gentle with yourself.
The past two weeks have been a combination of all these things. It has been stressful, but joyful. I have pushed myself in directions in order to grow, and I have accepted some areas that I see need some work.
Life is a celebration. It’s a challenge and a joy. There are tears and heartbreak but also momentous successes and breakthroughs. I think one thing we all need to remember is that life is a balancing act. Take what you need and leave the rest.
