Awkward definitely describes how I feel a great deal of the time.  Not quite ready, not quite prepared, not quite educated, not quite experienced enough, not quite high class enough, not quite creative enough....awkward!

Blaine Hogan says,“Awkwardness creates space for us to transform into better versions of ourselves if we let it. But… Most of us spend our entire lives avoiding awkwardness at all costs.”

That is powerful!

When I find myself in that awkward place, do I use it?   Recognize what got me there and determine I won't get there again?  Or do I see it coming and avoid it, make excuses or just refuse to deal with it?

It doesn't feel good, that's for sure, but it could be right where God wants me.  Would I change if I were comfortable?  nope.

So maybe awkward is the new comfortable? 

Awkward - the place to be!
