Have you ever found yourself stuck in the same exact place and space that you were in a year ago? Maybe you have found yourself asking questions like, “Why? Why can’t I seem to escape this place?” “Why am I still here? This isn’t fair.” Or, “I’ll never be able to escape. It’s impossible.”
I remember a few years ago, as I sat at my pink desk in my little apartment bedroom, with tears streaming down my face, I was asking myself the same questions and telling myself the same things. I couldn’t seem to escape the cycle of hurt from heartbreak. My whole life I found myself in the same places and spaces, dealing with the same hurt, year after year.
I felt like I had tried everything. Reading self help books. Hiding the hurt and choosing to just move forward. Distracting myself by staying busy with anything and everything. Hoping that time would just heal all and I would eventually be set free.
But what I learned was that true life transformation only happens when you DECIDE to do something that is different from what the rest of the world is doing.
The world tells you to make decisions that are safe. The world fills you with fear by constantly telling you to focus on the “what if.” The world tells you to “just move forward.” The world tells you to focus on the external. The world gets you to believe that everything should just be given to you. The world gets you to believe that everything comes instantly. The world glorifies the easy way.
What I learned was that when I did things the way the world told me to do things, I found myself going in circles and stuck in the same toxic cycles. The easy way is never the life transforming way.
The reason why you continue to find yourself stuck in the same place and space, dealing with the same problems year after year is because you continue to take the easy road, the road that is glorified by the world.
In order to break free from staying in the same place and space that you continue to find yourself in, you have to first make a mind shift. You have to choose to not operate in the same broken mindset that the rest of the world operates in. Then, you have to DECIDE to DO. You have to activate with action instead of hoping that just by hearing you will be healed. Lastly, you have to invest in yourself. You have to decide that you are worthy to break free from the broken places and spaces you find yourself in.
Life transformation doesn’t just fall into your lap. It’s not just given to you. Life Transformation is never accomplished by taking the easy, wide, wordly road. In Matthew 7:14 GNT we see Jesus say, “For the gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to LIFE, and there are few that find it.” Will you be one of the few who finds it?
Life Transformation is always available to you, but YOU have to make the decision to step into it. This requires you to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. This requires you to actually start doing the hard stuff instead of just taking and receiving. This requires you to invest in yourself. This requires you to step into the process and work through it.
When I shifted from doing the things that were easy to doing the hard things, that’s when I experienced true freedom and life transformation. When I decided to stop running away from the hurt I held inside my heart and instead face it, that’s when I experienced transformational healing and stepped into new beginnings. So today, I challenge YOU to stop taking the easy road and start taking the hard road, the road that will lead to Freedom and Life Transformation!
