moments of discord

Every situation where you have free agency yet are choosing to not do the thing you think you should do is an invitation to become more self-aware. 

When you’re tired and lying down but thoughts about how you should be taking care of something else keep circling your mind — maybe your body telling you that it needs to rest if you want to perform well. 

When you feel a sudden surge of courage and finally say something that you’ve been holding in but also find a part of yourself screaming inside, “why did I just say that?!”, maybe that was a moment of personal growth where you are slowly becoming comfortable speaking your mind. 

The moments of discord when your feelings and actions deviate from what you think you should be feeling and doing are not necessarily something to fight, but rather they can be a rich source of insight about what you need, how you operate, and the person you have the potential to become.
