The new year brings new challenges, new opportunities, new hopes and fears.
Yes, even fear. Whatever you choose to call it — fear, anxiety, distress, worry, dread, panic — it’s a sense of foreboding you try to push back or away completely. Maybe you try to understand it. I’ve tried. Somehow I thought if I could analyze the sensation enough, it would somehow disappear. It hasn’t.
So I’ve realigned my fear. The feeling doesn’t need to vanish. I can choose to look at it differently. Assimilate it. Redefine it. Embrace it, if necessary. Transform it into positive energy to inspire change and movement. I’m choosing transformation.
It’s so long to the “what-ifs” and hello to new places, new people, new relationships, and renewed confidence and job opportunities. You were okay, 2014, but I’m moving on.
Here’s to 2015.
