I Was Truly Challenged When... By Molly O’Neill Honestly, I created a ton of my own challenges. From my teenage years through my mid-twenties I kept spinning this web of chaos because I couldn’t handle stillness. I couldn’t handle being with myself. When I took my first teacher training, it forced me to wake up and look at the life I was living, and I saw that it was totally at odds with my true self and my potential. The process of disentangling myself from that life and getting to know the real Molly was incredibly painful and challenging, but also boundlessly rewarding. The beautiful thing is that it never ends. Once you start to wake up and get a glimpse of your best self, you can never go back. The rest of your life is spent on that path toward actualizing that self.
