“Our real discoveries come from chaos, from going to the place that looks wrong and stupid and foolish.” ~Chuck Palahniuk
It would seemingly make sense to celebrate order and perfection and symmetry… but I’m finding in my own life, especially lately, that order can be great, but chaos is where all the magic is.
Condoning CHAOS?!? Disorder? Disorganization? Disarray? YES.
What do I mean by that? Well, the thing is, you can’t find your perfect place of order, symmetry and belonging in this world without risking complete chaos, madness, and rejection.
Now, do I condone breaking the law, trespassing, or bad relationships? NO! But I do condone getting sweaty, getting dirty, and getting your hair messed up if it means you got your butt up off the bench and played the game! Even if you play and lose, at least you can say you didn’t spend your life on the sidelines, watching everyone else LIVE! The most dangerous thing about your comfort zone is that it’s comfortable. It lulls you into believing that you’re in the right place. But if you’re not feeling some pain, feeling some doubt, feeling some fear on a regular basis… I can tell you right now, you are NOT in the right place.
Don’t run from chaos. Embrace it. When everything in your life is up in the air, it means things are coming together in a way far better than you ever could have planned. Great chaos precedes great CHANGE. If you’re wondering why your life never changes, it could be because you’re holding on too tight to order, safety and normalcy.
Get out there today and get aggressive. Get bold. Get risky. Get stupid. Get crazy. Whatever you would normally do, try doing the opposite all day long and see what happens!
As Thomas Jefferson once said: “If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done.”
