Pain is Magic.

Weekly Mantra

 

It has been a bit since I shared about a book, but I have still been reading a lot. I recently finished Untamed by Glennon Doyle and there were so many little (and big) gems throughout the book that I thought I would share some of my favorites over the next few weeks. And, maybe, it will inspire you to read the book. I think you will enjoy it.

“Pain is not tragic. Pain is magic. Suffering is tragic. Suffering is what happens when we avoid pain and consequently miss our becoming. That is what I can and must avoid: missing my own evolution because I am too afraid to surrender to the process. Having such little faith in myself that I numb or hide or consume my way out of fiery feelings again and again. So my goal is to stop abandoning myself — and stay. To trust that I’m strong enough to handle the pain that is necessary to the process of becoming. Because what scares me a hell of a lot more than pain is living my entire life and missing my becoming. What scares me more than feeling it all is missing it all.”

That is a lot to digest, but what if we changed our perception about pain? What if we used pain as a conduit for our evolution? Let’s use this week’s mantra to start the shift. Remember, our thoughts and our words are extremely powerful.

This week’s mantra:

Pain is magic.
Pain is magic.
Pain is magic.

Have a fabulous week!
