I'm not sure what it is about this time of year, but I always get this feeling of renewed hopefulness and excitement about the possibilities that surround each of us.
Maybe it's the seemingly increased words of kindness people seem to express around this time or the slowed down pace of life in general. It just seems these weeks are when I think most about what I want in my life, both personally and professionally. And with that comes a renewed determination to achieve those goals.
I'm learning to focus more on what I do want. And I'm trying not to worry so much about how those goals will be met, but trust that the way will be shown to me.
There are, without question, moments of doubt and fear, but learning to relax and concentrate on the desired outcome has helped. Our thoughts really do become things. Seeing those thoughts materialize into something we desire is a gift and only provides motivation to continuing thinking positively.
My hope for this new year is to get better at letting go and letting God, keep mindful of my goals and not allow fear or anxiety to get in the way of achieving them, to provide my sellers and buyers with simply the best service I can offer, and to have fun. Just have fun.
I'm choosing to believe that times for all of us will get better -- that the worst is behind. And that we all can and will reach whatever goals we put in front of us.
Now go chase and capture your dream...
