2018 is off and running! When a new year dawns it can bring with it a variety of emotions, goals, resolutions and hopes of a new beginning. In order to achieve our new goals, new venture, or resolutions we have to let go of the old and embrace the new, no matter how scary and unfamiliar it is. By keeping our eyes focused on the past, we are blinded by the good new things that are before us. The habit of sinking into negative thoughts about the past, present or future stand in the way of embracing the new with a positive mindset and attitude. We have no way to know what the future is going to look like. I was told at a very young age by a very special coach, that there are two things you can control every day: your attitude and your effort.
As we enter 2018, maybe there is an unfamiliar season ahead for you or me. We all experience different seasons of life, some being positive and some negative; some wanted and some unwanted; some exciting and some terrifying. Regardless of what lies ahead, how we choose to look at and think about our circumstances will determine if we succeed, have peace and hope, or anxiety and fear. Step into 2018 with new courage, bravery and a positive attitude. Letting go of the old frees up our heart to embrace the new.
Happy New Year!
