A ridiculously mere TWO weeks from now I'll be just getting back from my first hike at *The Ridge* (nickname for the resort). And I know I'll be suffering and in pain - I'll be grumpy and cranky and wondering why the hell I signed up for this. And as weird as it sounds, I'm actually looking forward to it!
A motto of the Ridge is:
*GET COMFORTABLE BEING UNCOMFORTABLE*
It's a biggie - and I hear that the trainers and hiking guides say it a LOT. It means physical discomfort, obviously - but really it's talking about emotional and mental discomfort - and I know this is what I need. The life I've created for myself is very unhealthy on many different levels, but it's also very comfortable. And although I'm tolerating a lot of thoughts and habits that are negative, they are also familiar and feel safe. But tolerating just isn't cutting it anymore - I know it's destructive and will lead to nothing but more sadness, disappointment and some very scary health risks.
So, crazy as it sounds... I'm excited about getting out of my comfort zone and pushing my self-imposed limits and seeing what I'm able to accomplish!
IN TWO WEEKS!!!!
I'm SO excited :)
