Winter’s end is coming. My countdown calendar says we are a mere twenty days from the first day of spring. Tomorrow we flip the page to March 1. Monday morning, dawn to a bright day loaded with possibilities, the beginning of a week filled with promise, and a month dedicated to starting anew. March always feels like a breath of fresh air and hope. But throwing away old, tired and broken patterns is often easier said than done. Peer pressure is real, established 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 morning offers you another chance. Wait for your future to unfold before you write your story in stone. When and where your adventure begins 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, and your supporters stand in your corner, cheering for your success. Become a master at embracing and enjoying unique 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.
