10 ways Life is Experienced in Dichotomy

Updated: Jul 22, 2022

Much of life is experienced through attuned awareness of its dichotomy. This post is dedicated to 1) simplifying the seemingly complex idea of life's contrast and 2) celebrating the bravery of truly LIVING through life's beautiful madness. .

10 ways Life is Experienced in Dichotomy:

1) With the excitement and beauty of new commitments...

comes the fear of learning curves, unknowns, and risks.

2) With the challenges of womanhood...

comes the innate power of being a woman. 3) With injury or illness...

opportunity arises for stillness, rest, and appreciation. 4) With heartbreak...

opportunity arises for deep gratitude, new direction, strength, and coming closer to your own self. 5) With profound love...

comes fear of loss, fear of pain, not being enough, doubts, the unknown. 6) With fear of leaving an old job...

opportunity arises for new discoveries, new skills, new support, new growth, new surroundings. 7) With exciting, freeing , necessary change...

comes fear of the unknown and fear of risk.


8) With mountains...

come valleys. With summer, comes fall. With sunrise, comes sunset. Life contrast is mimicked in nature.

9) With death comes life...

and with life comes death. Literally— everyday people die and new people are born. 10) With the death of an old life-story...

comes the birth of a new miraculous one.

These dichotomies undeniably exist for everyone. They are perfectly human.


Perhaps the secret lies within the resilience of fear, by choosing to act out of the trust, love, and the truth within yourself— versus acting out of old fears, avoidance, comfort, safety nets, or protection from hurt. That’s where the undeniable truth, compassion, beauty, and ever-evolving fruits of growth align— in that courage, that resilience, that willingness to befriend fear with awareness and plunge further into brave love. This awareness is a commitment you make to YOURSELF, for yourself, because your bravery and truth is the real gold that benefits ALL.

The dichotomies will always exist.

It’s our choice to live in the present and look forward with awareness, remaining open to possibility and continuous courageous love.
