From discomfort to growth

Author M. Scott Peck once said, "The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers."

Have you found this to be true? Although I haven't much liked being in those uncomfortable and unhappy places, I see that much of my growth has come from such times.

There is something to be said for asking deep questions at those times: What might need changing in my life? What do I really desire? Are there things I need to let go? Parts of me I need to embrace in order to be my truest self? 

And there surely is something to be said for stepping out of ruts! Once you move out of a rut, so many possibilities present themselves. Who knows what might be ahead? It's OK to feel uncomfortable for a while. Let yourself open up to something new!
