Good choices don’t always feel good.
Well, at least not in the moment.
Life would be so much easier (and decisions would be so seamless to make) if the good choices always felt awesome at the moment. But more often than not, when it comes to growth and healing, that’s just not the case.
Leaving behind toxic people is still painful, even though you know it’s the right choice. Choosing to leave a place that never felt like home is still hard, even though you know it’s the right choice. Closing out a chapter of your life – or closing the book altogether – is still challenging, even though you know it’s the right choice.
But any time your fear or discomfort tries stopping you from making the right choice in each moment, remind yourself of this truth:
Hard choices, aligned and fulfilled life.
Easy choices, small and stagnant life.
Nothing worth having comes easily. I hope these simple mantras help you find the courage to make the right choices for yourself, your life, your healing, and your growth, even if they aren’t always easy to make.
