Winter’s end is coming. My countdown calendar says we are a mere seventeen days from the first day of spring. March 1 always feels like a fresh start. But starting anew is often easier said than done. Peer pressure is real, old habits are hard to break, and slippery slopes catch us unawares. We fear the unknown and approach change with caution.
If you have abandoned your New Year’s Resolutions, gotten caught in the sensational worries of the daily headlines, or fallen into the trap of thinking you are not worthy, remember each dawn offers you another chance. Your future isn’t written in stone. Where you start your adventure is not an indicator of where your journey will lead you. Every day ordinary people make massive changes, achieve astonishing feats, and create their dream life.
The sun is smiling, nature is waking, your supporters stand in your corner, cheering for your success. Become a master at embracing and enjoying new activities, and walking unfamiliar paths, laugh when you trip and fall, then get up and try again—it’s how we learn.
What will you confront head-on today?
Keep on writing.
