The Power of Acceptance: Embracing Change for a Brighter Future
Serenity Vista is looking forward to Maya's arrival next week to begin her rehab internship. Internship is always a benefit for everyone involved, especially when there is a blending of cultural differences, in this case, Panama, Canada and Switzerland.
I am just about to begin my Drug Rehab Internship. There is something very interesting when I am going away and leaving my comfort zone. We all have different reasons to leave but the process can bring a similar feeling for all of us; the feeling of openness. This simple act of following my calling for change reminds me I am not static or stuck in one place. I am a moving individual. When I chose to come to Serenity Vista Addiction Treatment Center in Panama, I chose to give myself a space for renewal to take place. This means that the power is brought back in my hands and the choice in which way I want to use it in the future becomes mine. And when there is the intention to let go of my fears, going out of my comfort zone, it may be exactly the place where magic happens.
So, if it’s in the expanding of our view that we grow, then what am I waiting for before I decide it’s time to dive into that unfamiliar place?Maybe I am simply afraid of the unfamiliar because there are no references, nothing to hold on to, only new feelings. Unfortunately, I fear this feeling when I could truly enjoy it because what comes with not knowing is a non-static state. Not knowing how things will turn out actually leaves place for everything or anything possible to happen, doesn't it? Where people might see limitation, there essentially are endless possibilities. And when nothing is yet fixed, everything is to be created. And this is the magic of stepping out of our comfort zone and pushing ourselves to take those risky steps. A drug rehab internship right now feels a little risky, but I am up for it!The importance is not so much the reason for my departure but more what I will discover and how I will use the new understanding of myself and of the world to impact and change lives. The benefit of the jump outweighs my fears.Truth is, fears may always be part of my daily life. I will not wake up one day and no longer have fear but what is changing is that I am learning how to dance with those fears. I no longer will let those fears paralyze me but use my strength to take actions for what is important to me.
I’m saying "yes" to possibilities getting out of my comfort zone because great lessons are yet to come, and great discoveries as well. What about you? Are you willing to create more space for magic to happen in your life?~ Maya
