I think we can all agree that 2016 has certainly been a wild ride.
Personally, a lot happened in my life. We sold our home, moved twice, welcomed our daughter to age 13, I transitioned to a new role at work, my husband turned 50, we saw our country shift in ways we couldn’t imagine, I started this blog, I re-engaged with my therapist to manage my anxiety, and I’m coming into the end of the year a bit weary. Phew. I think I came over the finish line of my last road race in better shape.
I’m not particularly reflective on New Year’s Day, but this year feels a bit different. There has been a lot of change in our world this year, and the uncertainty feels palpable. That uncertainty can lead to trepidation, and growing fear, but I’m committing to myself and my loved ones to practice living in this moment rather than worrying about the next, and I challenge you to do the same.
Right now I am okay. Right now I am safe. Right now the sun is coming up. Right now…I am well.
“Most people are prisoners, thinking only about the future, or living in the past. They are not in the present, and the present is where everything begins. ~Carlos Santana
Welcome to 2017. Let’s do this – hand in hand.
