The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: June 30, 2011

Quote of the Day:

“Repotting a plant gives it space to grow. Repotting ourselves means taking leave of our everyday environments and walking into unfamiliar territory – of the heart, of the mind and of the spirit. It isn’t easy. The older we get, the more likely we are to have remained in the same place for some time. We stay because it’s secure. We know the boundaries and, inside of them, we feel safe. Our roots cling to the walls we have long known. But remaining inside can keep us from thriving. Indeed, without new experiences or ideas, we slowly grow more and more tightly bound, eventually turning into less vibrant versions of who we might have been. Repotting means accepting that the way is forward, not back. It means realizing that we won’t again fit into our old shells. But that’s not failure. That’s living.” ~Heather Cochran

The Single Woman Says:

Your roots got you to where you ARE – but your wings will take you to where you’re GOING. Today: Dare to venture out. Dare to cross boundaries. Dare to push beyond the four walls of what is “comfortable” into the area JUST outside your comfort zone…and greatness won’t be able to leave you alone. Welcome the pain, and the discomfort, and the stretching – it means you’re GROWING! If a situation is not working for you anymore; whether it’s a job, a friendship, or a relationship – that means your sowing is outgrowing where you’ve been in order to make room for where you’re about to bloom. Never trade spiritual and emotional maturity for security. Your new life awaits on the other side of NOT PLAYING IT SAFE! J
