My current pair of skinny jeans are causing me a problem.

I don’t really want to talk about it because vulnerability is uncomfortable.


I don’t want to be disingenuous but I also don’t necessarily want to broadcast my current failure.

For goodness sake! I’m the girl who knows how to lose 9 pounds in 7 days and run a marathon and meet a running club at dark-thirty in the morning. And I’m also the girl who doesn’t get it right all of the time.

So today, I’m doing it – being honest about where I’m at.

embrace discomfort

Because we all need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

And while none of us enjoys pain, the avoidance of pain at any and all cost could very well get in the way of real progress.

It’s a wise person who recognizes that frustration is fantastic fuel for the engine of change and can literally provide a positive push away from the problem at hand.

So yeah.

I’m gonna get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

Even if that means squeezing into my skinny jeans.
