#77: The Mess in the Middle

We often talk about the thrill of new beginnings and look forward to the finish line.

But we rarely discuss the mess in the middle, the limbo, the uncertainty, the "will we make it?" phase.

Yet the middle of our story is where most of the action happens—it's where we're forced to get out of our comfort zone, stretch ourselves, move amidst doubt and confusion. It's where we grow immensely, embrace challenges, fall down, and stand back up.

If you're in the messy middle of a project, relationship, or process, I hope you find the strength to keep going even when it's heartbreakingly hard.

No matter the result, the prize is coming out stronger on the other side.

It gets better. It's all worth it. I promise.
