The best is yet to come
I had a dream that a door is being opened to me. What’s behind that door I do not know. What I do know is that it’s a NEW beginning.
New… that word has always created a cautious pause in me. I want to be prepared, plan, organize the details and be in control of the process & outcome. And if I can’t do that, well then my fight or flight tries to kick in and keep me in my comfort zone. Dormant, safe, preventing failure and avoiding the feeling of being uncomfortable. But that’s not what my heart REALLY wants. No, I’m a dreamer, a doer, a leader. This means accepting that scary word, “new”.
The benefits of allowing new beginnings, discovering new skills and going on new adventures is your creativity, adaptability and resourcefulness expands! Allowing challenges, affirms that your long-term self-worth is more important than short-term self-comfort. Practiced over time, this lifestyle helps you become more proactive, and fearless. An open and healthy mine is more able to deal with negative events and overcoming “failures”.
But is it really failure? Or is it just learning. I know you have probably heard this before but for the sake of grasping what I’m saying. Thomas Edison failed 1,000 times when working on the light bulb. But really the light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.
So the TRUTH is.. embracing the new and unknown benefits us!! We just need to be brave enough to allow it. And maybe let go of the reins a little, lol. Not everything has to be planned and controlled.
This painting represents “the best is yet to come”. Open doors, new beginnings and beautiful outcomes. Let the light in.
