Dying a Slow Death While We’re Still Alive

April 17, 2021

Life is meant to be an endless string of leveling up because we are made for continuous growth and healing.

Life is always happening, shaping us as it goes. We’re always learning new things, meeting new people, exploring new ideas, spaces, and ways of being.

When we’re not, we’re stagnant.

Dying a slow death while we’re still alive.

Our path and pace don’t have to look like anyone else’s, but it’s essential for our health and happiness. For feeling fulfilled and living our purpose in this life. For showing up fully expressed and contributing in the way that only we can.

Sometimes we stand still because we feel stuck and trapped, anchored by people and spaces that choose stagnation out of comfort. Sometimes we stand still because we don’t know what we need to do next or where to even begin. And sometimes we stand still because of our own fear of changing things up and the losses that will inevitably come.

With growth comes outgrowing.
Not always, but often.

And even though that’s heartbreakingly hard, it’s a necessary part of the journey. It’s a critical process to make space for all the people and things that are meant to come next as we move to a new level of living, loving, and learning. As we become more of who we’re here to be.

Trust the process.
Surrender to the unfolding.
And grieve the losses as you must.

You’re simply becoming more of who you’re here to be, and that’s a beautiful thing.
