Contrast. When it shows up in your life, how are you responding to it?

Do you allow it to hold you captive? Or do you embrace it so that you can grow with it?

As much as I love who I have become, there is still so much that I want to be and have my soul experience.

And in my experience, the only way to get there is through the gate of transformation and contrast.

And as much as I like to think that I am ready for the growing pains that come through walking through that gate and no matter how much I plan and energetically prepare, they always creep up and throw me for an “uplevel” loop.

So how do you get through these infamous uplevel pains?

Here are a few thoughts.

Identify patterns.

Maybe you’ve heard it before, “new level, new devil”, but I actually think it is new level, same devil. We often have the same problem show up time and again, just in a different way.

Money, relationships, success, as you start to soar in certain areas, others continuously seem to be a thorn in your side. Or are they changing and you just aren’t seeing it? Because change can’t truly happen until you see that it has!

As you go down the personal development path you will start to see certain areas of your life change with grace and ease, while others tend to feel like they might not ever be transformed.

In those moments of frustration, don’t compare the contrast you are into where you want to go, compare it to where you have come from.

It’s much easier to see progress through the lens of reflection.

I love to look back in my journal and notes to where I was a year ago, 2 years ago, etc.

It’s amazing how much we forget.

It’s also unbelievable how often I forget that everything I have right now, at one point, was a big dream and desire. At one point, I was in a moment of contrast and decided to let that fuel my fire and determination to change my reality.

We are powerful creators. Especially when we appreciate what masterpieces we have already painted. Just remember, the contrast is often the canvas.
