The ship has to untie the rope that holds it steady to the shore and we all have to do things that are uncomfortable, if we want to move forward in our goals.
There’s always a price to be paid and it’s usually outside of our comfort zone.
You have to want something bad enough to let go of the branch, untie your ropes and pay the price.
Cause you know the pain of paying the price is waiting for you, when you make your move.
I’m sending my family back to New Zealand next week, I’ll be staying in Sydney to earn some money, pay some bills, for the next 8 months. It’s a great opportunity, I’ll do some great work and we’ll be getting ahead.
They haven’t gone yet, and I’m experiencing the slow emotional pain, much like a lead blanket, draping across my shoulders, forcing me to face how I feel about this new situation, way outside of my comfort zone.
It’s part of the process, the bird has to go through, realising how much they have grown to love the branch they are perched upon.
Along with that, all the possessions you accumulate along your time sitting on a branch, are all sitting neatly packed, waiting for the council to pick up and take it away.
There’s even an emotional process with that. Sorting out, letting go, facing all the triggered memories, making the choice to let go…
So it’s all so real, when you make a change…you start to pay the price, experience the process, you start to let go.
Having said all of that, jump in – the water is fine!
