MORAvational Monday: Growing Pains

Hi everyone! I’ve been loving doing MORAvational Monday for y’all, but I also moravational2love it when we have some absolutely kick ass guest bloggers! Today, I’m passing the torch to my girl, Alana Sue. She’s always sharing her words of wisdom with me, and I thought it would only be fair for her to share the love with all of you! Enjoy xo NM

Growing pains. The biggest blessing and curse in life. As we get older and wiser, you see that relationships don’t last forever. Romantic, friends, and sometimes even family relationships break at some point. There is a cycle: the initial shock, the questioning, the grieving and then the room being cleared for something new, if not a few new things to enter. I often find that when I become conscious of the fact that I have to let someone I thought I never would go, I question myself. Where did I go wrong? Where was I blinded? Was this meant to be a lesson? Is this my fault? Or am I just oblivious? A major step in the cycle is self-analyzation. 
The faster the pace of my life picks up, I see myself leaving people in the rearview mirror because they no longer function on my frequency. moravationalI find it happening often. Each time I am more aware of how this process goes, but am still shocked that it’s happening yet again. I’ve heard many times that you get only a handful of true soul family members in one lifetime. Coming from someone who used to prioritize their social life, I used to roll my eyes at that statement. The older I get, the more I realize that they were right. 
Don’t be afraid to outgrow people. There is a way to do it gracefully; express your feelings and intent behind your actions with love even if they don’t understand at the time. Some people you will part from forever and some you will part from temporarily. Each wave of motion comes with benefits to your soul. 
Growing up in a family that’s in show business, an analogy my father shared with me regarding this topic stuck with me and has served me for the better since I heard it:
You are the casting director of your life. You have the power to sit back in your chair and look at the people who are playing roles in your life and decide if at that moment in time, if they are enhancing your production in yourself. There are the people who you say “yes,you make the cut ” or “I’ll have to come back to you” or simply “no, thank you.”
You love, you lose, you love, you gain. There is no telling what the future holds, but trust that the universe has your back and fear is a lie. Fall completely into anything and everything you do, for it is the only way to get the full human experience of life. The pressure makes the diamond and dropping the dead weight allows you to fly.
