Happy 2016, everyone! We’re so excited that you’re on this journey of discovery with us, and we can’t wait to share our 2016 with you.
While I’m excited and hopeful for what 2016 will bring, I’ve been fighting a prevailing feeling of fear about the uncertainty in my life. It seems there’s so much to figure out that I don’t know where to begin; where to take action first or what the action steps are exactly. Have you ever felt that way?
I thought that by now, at 33, I’d have at least one part of my life “sorted out.” Perhaps I wouldn’t be happily married, but I’d have a great career. Or, I’d be happily married and still working to figure out my career. But I feel as though I’m still trying to figure both of those areas of my life out, so it feels as though I’m treading water.
Here’s the thing though. Deep down, I believe that I’m going to get to a more stable, happy place. I don’t know when and I don’t know exactly how, but I feel confident about it. The feeling reminds me of this quote that an amazing friend sent to me:
Isn’t that beautiful? I think it’s a great reminder that we evolve and grow as we’re meant to. Maybe one year is awful, and the next makes up for it in a huge way. And by having faith in that, we can relax and be gentler with ourselves. At least that’s my hope for myself.
So, here’s to a fresh and hopeful start in 2016! Everything is moving as it should.
