Your enthusiasm, encouragement, and ideas have helped me in setting out on my new adventure…Often when I am strategizing about my new gig, I remind myself that I can start fresh… It was your suggestion to step back and consider what I would want to do if there were no constraints… I am not there yet, but I know this is a stepping stone. I’ve never let myself take the long view of my career. Scary, but so good.
Sometimes, we forget that we can start fresh – pursue a bold dream, scratch one book idea and start another, launch a brand new company, commit to a project that we believe in, make something right when we mess up, build new and deep friendships, create a new family of choice. But we can. It is a choice. It may not be easy, what’s your alternative? Beginning anew starts the moment we decide it does.
No matter where you are in your journey, a new beginning is just a question away. Start by listening to yourself – consider what it is you would love to do without constraints. You may be surprised at how clear your answer is.
