Have you ever had a behavior that you wanted to change? Have you ever experienced the frustration of unrealized possibilities in your life? All of us have experienced these things. We want to be the best we can be and we set out to change and somehow the overwhelm and stress of life seem to prevent us from moving forward. Changing your behavior is not easy. It’s like climbing the biggest mountain.
Each of us wants to be all that we can be and yet at the same time we stand in our own way. And this is how it was for me. I know the longing for freedom, empowerment, creativity and connection. Half of my life, I spent my time in addictive behaviors because they brought me relief.
But for me to live a life based on managing pain, seeking relief, surviving or getting through life was intolerable. I wanted freedom. I wanted to thrive.
