“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” — Lao Tzu
Change can be scary. We humans don’t usually like change. And yet, everything...everything... changes.
Think about it: Nature does it beautifully four times a year. Every life stage we go through shows us our own personal changes—in our bodies, our attitudes and beliefs, our relationships, our strengths and struggles.
The particularly scary part of change: Letting go. What will fill the void? Will I be sufficiently propped up if I let go of the scaffolding that now supports me? Who will be there? Am I strong enough?
And yet: It’s the New Year. The best time ever to take stock of what works, and what doesn’t work. Those who love you will be there. And you’re undoubtedly stronger than you think. So, walk to the edge. Take a breath. And become who you’ve always wanted to become.
