Heroes journey blog post 2

In heroes journey we are posed with very difficult questions. These questions have got me thinking about my life and what I’m really living for. One of the questions that we have been wrestling with is, what is worth growing for? For me the answer is this. Jesus! I know it sounds like a cliché answer for a Christian. In actuality, what better way to live your life is there then to live your life with the person who died for yours? Growing is something that is uncomfortable, difficult and stressful at times. Growing is something that we all have to do in one way or another in our lives. My other reason for growing and my life is my family and for me personally. It might sound selfish, but I know that to gain any type of wisdom, life skills or positive change I must step outside of my comfort zone and grow. This brings me to my next question. What is worth being uncomfortable for? And to that my response is growth. What’s the point of being uncomfortable if you do not grow and you were uncomfortable times? When we are put in uncomfortable situations we are forced to make decisions that otherwise we wouldn’t need to make. Being uncomfortable is a necessary part of growth and change. Just like everything else in this world there are times for everything. There is a time for being uncomfortable and a time for growing. And just like these difficult things there is also a time for being comfortable. Being in comfort is not bad! My last question is, what is worth being in comfort for? I believe that we must be in comfort to receive the rest required for necessary growth. When we try to grow too rapidly or too much, we tire. When we are tired of the growing process it is flawed and we start to grow (for lack of a better term) wrong. Growing wrong can look like being overly stressed or maybe taking life’s lessons and not learning the right things out of them. All of these things are important for life! Growing, being uncomfortable and being in comfort are all things we need to do to get the most out of this life.
