The Irony of Growth: Friction 

Friction and conflict can build our strength. Friction lights the match. Friction makes waves as the wind blows across the water. Friction gives us traction, allowing us to move forward. It is along this edge of conflict, of friction, that we grow. 

There exists a conflict when we choose to take a new vision or new path. We must leave our comfort zones and embark on a new adventure. Just as trees grow from their edges, we too grow when we push into a new aspect of life. 

This friction in life can push us into new ways of living, if we open our wings, if we open our sails. Or we can allow the friction to keep us stuck where we are. It requires each of us to have faith and believe in our own ability to change, to do something new, to open our wings and fly. 

There is fear that can crop up and keep us stuck. Or we can redirect the energy of fear and change it into excitement to give us the courage we need to take that leap, trusting that the air will support us.
