Oh new beginnings. Exciting yet terrifying! Just as soon as we feel excited about something new its just about then when a wave of uncertainty rushes over. Some thrive on change while others cling to the mundane. I’ve found that there is a beautiful balance. The balance of blooming where your planted,and being opened to new adventures. That’s scary yall.. How do you live with open arms yet hold on? Oh and don’t even get me started on the Big D word… yea you guessed it.. DISAPPOINTMENT. Ugh this one hurts real bad! When we’ve tried something new,took a leap of faith, and it was totally not what we thought it was going to be. Thats the worst! We feel like a failure and afraid to dream again,but if we’d truly look deep into those moments of disappointment I guarantee you that we’d see good. Whether our strength was made stronger, or ventured to a place we’ve never known,maybe even met a new person that became a friend. It’s here where we have the choice to focus on the pain of the disappointment or open or eyes to the opportunity we were given.
As this next season is upon us I challenge us all not to grieve what was or what could’ve been, but instead celebrate the pieces that make our memories..
Here’s to new seasons and learning how to hold on as we let go!!
