Is It Time to Come Undone So You Can Be Fully Realized?
“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.”
― Cynthia Occelli
Bit by bit, over the past eight years, my life and my psyche have been cracked open and the old is still falling away. It’s not that someone new is emerging, it’s that my true self is pushing through and what I felt was the real me is being let go.
It’s been painful. My world once felt safe, but really it was stagnant. To let old ideas and mental structures go has been uncomfortable because it leaves me feeling exposed. And letting others see the real me has been scary. But as I slowly emerge, I am developing a new skin, one that’s not the wall the old one had become. This new skin is translucent and delicate, yet strong. It’s covered in wisdom. More and more I understand the process. Growth encompasses destruction and letting go. And I’m okay with that now.
Will you let all that you once thought was you fall away? I know you are here to be a blessing to this world. Emerge. Come out and play with me.
Affirmation: I release the old with grace and understanding. I know that what will emerge is something greater and that what looks like chaos is really just Divine Right Order in action.
“Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don't belong.”

It’s your life. Love it. Create it. Use it.
